We went for a birthday dinner. The food was wonderful! Portions were large and seemed designed for sharing. The owners are from South India, but there are dishes characteristic of several different Indian cuisines to choose from. Both the members of our family who like meat and the vegan members of our family really enjoyed the food.

Good food ,except that briyani is not up to the mark. However, good place to have complete Indian food. Surprised to see more Americans than Indian's.

This Indian restaurant was the only choice in town for quite a while. When Ithe original owners sold, the place bacame rather run of the mill. After yet another change of ownership there is a new menu with an impressive array of new choices often some rarely seen on the traditional Indian menus. Many interesting menu choices including vegitarian offerings.... More

Used to have this restaurant in our family rotation!! We had cravings for Indian food last night and ordered our usual dishes. Everyone at the table agreed the flavor just was lacking. Used to be such wonderfully spiced food. We were disappointed and are hoping things change. We will try it again to see if they've raised their standards. If... More

I don't have a lot of experience with Indian food, but I really enjoy eating here, and it's become a weekly event. Noon buffet is great, and I like coming here for dinner as well. Highly recommended.

So, we have been dining here for years and have always loved the food. We went last week and walked out thinking something was missing. It seemed like flavor/spice or quality of ingredients is being sacrificed. Also, the servers where wearing t-shirts and ripped jeans, texting, and playing around with their friends. We later found out they switched owners. I... More

We enjoyed having the lunch buffet and dinner at this restaurant. The owners are pleasant people and the service is quick. Also, the ambience is better than many Indian restaurants in the area. Food taste was good. As most prople have noted, the mango icecream/milk shake is very good.

Been here numerous times and they are very consistent. They always ask how spicy you would like your food and the lady that runs the place is always nice to talk with. Their makhani chicken is very good (butter chicken) as are their samosas. Good flavor and good spice. I heard the buffet is pretty good but I never had... More
