Takeaways were excellent. We tried biryani with raita, mutton curry dal and rotis. Portions were adequate, tasty and well packed. Size of meat pieces were good and they were well cooked. Breakfast thalis were diverse and tasty.

Food was stellar, naan bread tasted great along with the saag paneer. Mango lassi was great as well, only thing that could be improved was the speed of service, other than that highly recommend this restaurant, favorite place to eat in Rochester.
