Dined with a group of about 8 of us in the under the stars venue. It was busy and there were perhaps more customers outside than would normally fit in the restaurant, the inside looked empty. They seemed short staffed as it was exceptionally slow, from waiting to place orders and then longer to receiving the food. That being said... More

The lamb vindaloo at spicy level 5 was not quite hot enough for my taste, but I have experienced exceptional curries around the world and there is no doubt that this is very good. Samosas to start were great as was the bread platter. The mango smoothie is exceptional

Stopped here during a recent trip to the Philly area. My hotel folks advised me to try this place out, so I did. And I'm glad I did. First things first, I noticed that several people have complained about the service. When I went, the town of Media was having some sort of "dine out Wednesday" event because all of... More

The restaurant is nice and large, don't be fooled by the outside. They have a nice bar as well. The service we had was very lacking. We didn't see our server for most of the night. The food though is very good. The portions are large enough to share and you can get any dish mild to extremely hot. If... More

There are two overarching reasons why I rated this establishment a 3 star restaurant. The prices we were charged were higher than the ones posted online and the portions were particularly small for those prices. The pros were that the food was quickly served and cooked expertly. We enjoyed Tandoori chicken and Lamb Saag with samosas and garlic naan. The... More

Everything we ate was delicious. We were in time for the Happy Hour and enjoyed the garbanzo coated Tilapia. For dinner I ordered the Chilly Chicken and it was delectable. Others ordered the Murg Korma (chicken), Murg Karahi and the Rack of Lamb. We were all very pleased with what we ordered and the portions were generous enough to take... More

This is one of my "go to" Indian restaurants. I love the chicken tikka and their Punjabi kadhi. Even the quality of the buffet is good.

I'm always skeptical of "ethic" dining in the suburbs as these places tend to be so diluted to satisfy their white bread customers. This place is no different and not a particularly good value.
