From the appies at the bar to the main meal. It was a wonderful experience with the best ever Indian food I have ever tasted. Not even sure what I was eating but......it was all a fantastic experience.

Really worth a visit... absolutely delicious, authentic Indian food. Comfortable atmosphere (if not a bit cramped) and unique service. Particularly loved the "snacks while you wait", the goat curry, and the shredded pork belly "spoonfuls".

Everything about this place is FANTASTIC! Not only is the food great, but the general philosophy, history and thought that goes into everything.

Best Short Rib ever!

Get there early to be a part of the first seating, if you don't want to wait too long.... there is always a line!

Our first time here, and very disappointed in the whole experience. We felt it was over-rated both in terms of the food, the ambiance, and the overall process of waiting for a table. Fortunately we waited inside at the back of the restaurant where you can sit/stand and order a drink or a bottle of wine, while they pass around spicy, deep-fried Indian snack food. (This was the best food of the evening). We waited for one hour, which by then we had drank our wine and had sated our appetite with the hot fried snacks which were delivered from the kitchen every 10 minutes or so. 30 minutes would be OK, but 1-2 hours wait is just insanity. Go somewhere else, people! I was expecting an exotic or at least interesting room, not the plain, utilitarian space, with tiny tables. By the time we were seated, we were really not hungry any longer, but ordered more wine and dinner, as this, afterall, was why we came. The curries were very rich and heavy, spicy, and tasted very similar to each other (goat and sablefish). Vegetable dishes were mushy slurries beyond recognition. Naan bread was hard. We do love good Indian food, but this place seems too much like an Indian fusion Disneyworld - a "formula" and not worthy of a return visit for us.
