We had chicken tikka masala, naan, daal, spinach and tandoori chicken. It was all very tasty and good. Very authentic northern Indian-Pakistani. I will come here again.

Neighborhood is rough folks, not pretty. I arrived at about 330 pm to an empty restaurant less 3 people. The waiter recommended the Chicken Tika, so I took the recommendation also with garlic naan and eventually rice. The entrees do not include rice, which is...More
