They wrapped the take-out up really nicely so it would stay warm, but it leaked. The food is not spicy if you order the normal stuff. Its edible, but not really enjoyable. It's a step up from grocery store take-out and not worth the price.

I've been eating at this gem for about 15 years and they have never let me down. Lunch buffet has a good variety of tasty Indian dishes for about $10, including fresh Naan. Pleasant, attentive staff. Lots of underground parking.

We tried the food on the menu. But I think the buffet was (surprisingly) cheaper. The Coconut Curry was the best I've ever tasted. Halal but sells alcohol.
