I walked in on a Saturday night. The place was not busy at all. No one worked the bar. The host didn’t even acknowledge me. I had to order and pay through the host. The host just stood there shifting his weight from one leg...to the other, never checked on anyone. I had to practically beg for a glass of wine while I waited. 45 minutes for one lamb vindaloo. Seriously. One guy, just li’l old me. 45 minutes to get my food. Ridiculous.More

Food was good. The service was sub-par. The wait staff was very selective in which customers they provided the best customer service. Unfortunately, my husband and I were not those customers. Very disappointed. We love Indian food and would support this restaurant when on that...side of the water but service ruined it for us. All money is green no matter who is spending it!More

We have been to a handful of Indian restaurants and while this isn't the best one we've been to, it's still delicious. The service is a bit understaffed, which makes sense for the slower food service. I'd rather not sacrifice quality though, so the wait...was alright. We ordered a handful of items; bread basket, cheese stuffed naan, vegetable pakoras, vegetable samosas and then our meals. Two of the three appetizers came out fast. The vegetable pakoras were better than the pakoras at our regular establishment. The naan was a little on the bland side. I prefer the garlic and herb covered naan where it's still slightly greasy from the olive oil and garlic. We had a small hiccup with service. The meals came out and one wasn't ours. No big deal, but it took a while for the actual item to come. After we were just about done eating, the cheese naan came out. Which was not really worth ordering since it's just small pieces of cream cheese inside the bread. The meals were good. A number 3 on the spice scale was just right for someone who likes spicy. 5 would have killed me. The only real complaint about my specific meal was it said it was cream cheese and almond paste chicken, but it just tasted like a grilled chicken. A good grilled chicken, but I guess I expected maybe a creamy sauce or more cheese. It was tasty, but I must have misinterpreted the menu. All of us enjoyed our meals. We could have had the appetizers a bit later since the food took so long, but it gave us time for more talking among the table. The staff did bring water all the time and kept the drinks refilled, so that's a plus. Overall, I would try out other items next time just to see, but the food was good.More

A delicious meal start to finish. Butter chicken tender, crispy naan, perfect raita and the aloo gobi wonderful. We’ve eaten at many Indian restaurants and this is one of the best. Spotless. Friendly service. Just traveling through and chose it for its proximity to the...hotel, but would travel far for this quality.More

I've eaten at this restaurant many times and been mostly happy with the food. Today we got takeout for lunch. We ordered one dish for two as most of the time at this place one dish is two portions. When we opened the box there...were four small pieces of chicken. half as much as I get when I eat AT the restaurant. I couldn't believe the measly portion. Also, ordered the assortment of appetizers. I asked if there was a sauce such as tamarind sauce and the lady assured me it was in the bag. It was not in the bag at all. Very disappointing all around and last time I order takeout from Monsoon.More

The locals told me this was the best Indian food in the area and they weren't wrong! It is upscale and the food is prepared in a style that is closer to home cooking (lightly spiced and minimal oil) than traditional Indian restaurants (which are...more Dhaba style). I ordered a chicken and a daal (lentil soup) and they were both delicious. Huge portions of deliciously cooked food, fresh and served up with an equally large portion of tasty rice. Will definitely visit again!More

Wow...what a find. Came highly recommended by a customer at the quilt show at the convention center. Our appetizer Aloo Tikki (potato patty) with Tamarind Chutney was delicious and Chef’s Garlic Chicken Tikka (from the Tandoor Oven) was fantastic. Plenty to split. Wish we lived...here to come back more often. The owners and servers make you feel like family.More

The restaurant is very clean, great food options, and not too loud inside. The wait staff was plentiful and drinks were refilled quickly. We enjoyed our food and definitely would return to try more dishes. The food does take a little while but it’s worth...the wait.More

This place had some really good food and very nice staff, but it took a while to get our food. The staff is not very youthful, so they moved very slowly. The restaurant was clean and decorated very nice. I ordered the curry goat with...a level 3 on the heat (spicy). Their heat ranges from 1-5. The goat was cooked really well, very tender. Once we completed our meal we asked our server, which may have been the manager for a military discount and got it. If you like Indian food you will love this place, just know the service will be slow.More

Had a great lunch visit here a week ago. Everything tasted very fresh and authentic enough for my untrained taste :)). I guarantee that they can make it spicy as u would like. I will definitely be going back.
