Went with a group of 10 and decided to do the sampling menu. It was 35 dollars per person. Did not disappoint. It wasn’t a gourmet meal but it was fun to try the different dishes and they were tasty! Overall good casual dining experience :)

A friend brought me here for the first time, and I am so happy she did! Upon entering for dinner, we were given a lovely cup of steaming, fragrant and slightly spicy chai as we looked at the menus. This is a great place whether you're really hungry or if you just want nibbles, both are possible here. The waitstaff was kind and explained things in great detail. The smells were heavenly and we ordered a nice variety of dishes, from the stuffed naan to a chicken dish and the butternut squash in coconut was superb. We ordered the mango lassi which is not to be missed; a lovely concoction with mango, rosewater and yogurt, truly wonderful. The rice pudding for dessert was lovely, and so was the entertainment. I had a memorable evening and will certainly return to this little bit of heaven on Main St.

We were very disappointed by our experience with our family. We reserved over the phone and agreed on a specific time, then were told via vmail that there is place before our reserved time and had to be on a waitlist because we did not take the earlier spot. Then what's the point of reserving? What we notice in the restaurant is the treatment differential due to our party including kids, even with quiet kids watching the flamenco show seemed to bother a guest?! And how about seeing other customers being served some chai tea and not us?! The worst part is taking to the person who says it's the manager who justifies and does not listen to what we had to say and interrupts. That just shows how careless and not customer oriented the restaurant is.

Make sure you book in advance to go when there's a show on. There's a small additional fee but it is so entertaining. And the ambiance of the place is great. Great food and good value.

We all had tasty meals and found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable about their dishes. It is a reasonable cost to dine here and we had a lovely evening. So nice, that I am actually going back with another group tonight!
