“Palate pleaser”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

If you enjoy Indian cuisine, this is an excellent choice for great food. The breads, appetizers, chicken, shrimp, lamb & rice dishes were all expertly prepared and palate pleasers. Service was very good and attentive. Ambiance is ok and slightly tight seating. Did not leave smelling like a dish of curry, and the food was not greasy.

“Very Satisfied Customer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

I was craving Indian food so we ordered the $32.95 special combo for 2 delivery. The food arrived in 45 minutes (under the 1 hr maximum time est they promised). The combo, which included pakoras (6 pieces), chicken tikka (6-8 pieces), aloo ghobi (a serving for 4!), butter chicken (serving for 4), rice pilaf, 2 tandoori naan and 2 gulab jamun.
It was sooo much food (we totally could have served 4!!) and the value for your dollar is amazing!! The food was all yummy, except the butter chicken is a bit on the sweet side tbh. Not a fan of South Asian dessert but I could tell the Gulab Jamun looked well done as well.
Totally satisfied customer and would recommend this place to anyone! Good, cheap food!

“wonderful Indian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2013

We ordered the meat combo dinner for two. It was plenty of food to share - lamb, butter chicken, beef, rice, naan (I'm probably leaving something out). Everything was delicious. They were extremely busy, including take-out orders. It's obviously a favorite dining place for many people. They were a little slow in clearing tables, but as soon as someone came in, a table was cleared immediately for use. The waiter explained they had a problem with their computer system that was slowing everything down. The staff was very nice, but a little harried. Would definetely recommend this restaurant if you like Indean food.

“First Time Here; Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2013

I went here for lunch and everything I had were 9/10 great. There were one or two dishes I wasn't too keen on and didn't fit well with my taste buds but I enjoyed the rest of my meal. The buffet size is small; I would say there is roughly around 10-15 dishes available from what I remembered. This was my first time having Indian food and I really enjoyed it. Definitely recommend trying this place out.

“Seriously good, authentic Indian cuisine!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2013

Originally from London, we are used to really good Indian food but living in Massachusetts...the Indian restaurants are pretty poor! This however, was delicious. We had the non-veggie sharing plate (strange title!), papadums, chicken madras (amazing!!), chicken tika masala, pilau rice and naan. It was all really incredible.
Service was a little slow but it was very busy and we weren't in any hurry (just a little thirsy!).
Highly recommend going.
