Bland and under seasoned says it all. Charges the price of competent cooking but doesn’t deliver it. Even dishes marked as spicy were flavorless. Only those who know nothing about Indian food could approve the output of this kitchen. We’ve traveled extensively and often in...More

An excellent place for Indian Small Plates. The atmosphere is informal, but the service is highly attentive and professional - the cauliflower appetizer was some of the best I've ever had and the lamb skewers were cooked to perfection.

Our Biryani was excellent; flavorful with lovely chunks of meat. One great addition to the beverage menu is Sam Adams beer (I am not fond of the old standby beers that they used to offer.)
