This casual Mediterranean/Indian restaurant stands in Seattle's University District and has a wide variety of offerings. We've been coming here for years during our Seattle stays and have become fans of the Tandoori chicken (on the bone) and Gobi Aloo (cauliflower and potatoes). That's what...More

Delightful, friendly folks serving delicious food. Very inexpensive, too! Wonderful baba ghanooj and dolmas. My favorite quick to-go meal is a falafel with a schmear of baba ghanooj. Lots of options for vegans, vegetarians, and meat-eaters.

Some of the best curry I have had. Generous portions. The tikka masala is really nice. Go here if you can.

We love the menu - both Med and Indian food make for tasty combinations. Although busy (tables are a bit too close) the service was attentive and service was prompt. They have a surprisingly large choice of beers and other beverages. I appreciated the bottomless...More

Being from New York I enjoy food and the variety of options. I was a little unimpressed that the two separate dishes at our table looked and tasted almost the same (except for spice it was the same dish). In regards to the Americanized I...More
