My daughter and I went here to get my "Indian food" fix. My first time, she's a repeat customer--for a reason! We were immediately greeted and seated. Service was excellent, attentive but not rushed. The food was delicious. Can't remember the name of our appetizer,...More

We really liked the restaurant, the food was delicious, and the service was super friendly. We got the tandoori chicken for an appetizer, a goat curry, the lamb roganjosh, garlic naan, and the pistachio ice cream. Everything was delicious! The spices were great, the meat...More

Finally tried this place after hearing so much about it. It was...interesting. The decor was unusual and the use of glaring red lights inside were a little irritating and made it difficult to see at times. Having red type on the menu and trying to...More

Enjoyed the curried peas and mushrooms as well as the butter chicken. Right spice heat level for me. Did not enjoy the the ever present staff snatching tableware as soon as a fork was empty. (Picture Snoopy doing his vulture impression).
