“Okay Indian”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2014

I ate here with a friend this evening.
Mains were pretty much as expected - $15 to $17 each so fairly high pricing but not outrageous.
The Naan bread was fantastic, plentiful, and very reasonably priced.
There was a large rowdy group that made conversation difficult at times but overall a good budget experience.
Okay for casual dining

“Good food, average service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2014 via mobile

Sometimes you feel like having good Indian. For most of it, this is the place.
Not do good things are the platter for one was not flash. Hardly has any taste and not hot.
Main was excellent. Garlic naan is one the best I have had.
Waiter must have been the owner as he spent more time at the till than clearing the tables after people had left and I was there for an hour and they still weren't cleared!!
Good range of beers and wines.
No music though. Had to listen to the staff having an argument.

Toilet is outside and down an alley but not as scary as has been commented on before. At least it is clean.

“best $10 lunch in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2014

delicious, well-spiced Indian food with nice service at the right price. Try the dal makhani, the chole poora, and wash it down with the best pils anywhere, Emersons.

“Nice but no indoor toilet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2014

I really liked the food but I was surprised to see that the toilet was outside and down a run-down alley. I did not use it, and I wouldnt advise any vulnerable person to use it, unless you have someone to walk you there. I wont be back after dark because of this.
