This is the 4th time I have eaten here once with kids ages 1,5,&13 and recently myself and my husband. I love the service, the food, and the drinks! If you do not like spivey make sure you ask if the dish comes spicey or not (ex: masala sauce). The appetizers, the bread and all the food we have tried... More

Had dinner with a group of friends, one couple who knew the owner personally. Would you expect anything but impeccable service and food? What a great range of foods and tastes; all of it great.

My girlfriend and I popped in here for some lunch and were very happy with our choice. I order the Buttered Chicken and she ordered the Chicken Tiki Masala. We still can't decide which dish was better. The waiter was very nice and asked for our preferences in terms of spice and seasoning. We can't wait to continue going back!

For a South Street Restaurant it is one of the nicer, with linens, flatware and a authentic décor. Being from NJ the meals are priced a little more then I am accustom but still a decent deal. Each entrée comes with a small salad and a cup of basmati rice. Naan is not included. I wanted to try something different... More

Enjoyed finding this wonderful place at the end of a long day. Ordered take-out chicken tikka-masala, which was marvelous and served with flavorful basmati rice. The seasoning was fantastic and had that rare combination of spices familiar only to the most serious curry aficionados, and I travel the world I search of the perfect tikka-masala. Great location in the heart... More

I haven't had Indian food very often and the waiter suggested a dish with food that I like and it was fantastic!! Will go back to explore other dishes. Bring you own bottle which is a good thing.

So we just picked up some friends from the airport who've been in Mexico for a week. It was dinner time and we wanted to eat, I suggested mexican but that didn't go over well. Our friends suggested Indian. I was a little apprehensive because all I knew about Indian was curry and spicy. I was up for the experience.... More
