Our group of four had four different meals and all four of us were very happy. The menu has a good selection of authentic Indian dishes and the prices are reasonable. You order at the counter and then they bring it to your table. Recommend!

This is one of my favorite Indian restaurants in San Antonio. The chicken tikka masala is awesome. They make it fresh and the wait is never long. Highly recommend!
