I think this is the type of Indian restaurant where everyone could find something. We ordered the spinach appetizer, like all other trip advisors, and found that it was delicious. In fact it was my favorite part of the meal. We ordered two different duck dishes. I wasn't a fan of the duck skirt steak as the sauce wasn't for my palate, it was a little too "Indian food sauce." There are lots of vegetarian options here which I think I should have tried instead.

Wonderful sauces, but tended to be sweet more than spicy. Ordered the spinach (palak chaat), black cod, and cauliflower bazula, as recommended by Trip Advisor reviewers. Loved the first two, but wouldn't order the cauliflower again. Would also highly recommend the salmon, eggplant (tawa bangan), and particularly the bhindi anchor (okra).

Starving after a long morning of travel we got a last minute late lunch reservation based on tripadvisor feedback. 2:30 is their last seating, and while our service was great we did feel a bit encouraged to not dawdle. The spinach dish, palak chaat, felt like a compulsory recommendation. Thankfully it was great. The flounder mappas and shrimp malai were both very flavorful. Very jealous that I did not get the lavender infused GnT that my mother got.

This is high end cuisine. The food was served in such a beautiful way and the food was exquisite. We followed the recommendation of our server. She was extremely nice and helpful. the vegetarian dishes were fantastic. We ordered three of them and the flavors where incredible (cauliflower, and spinach in particular) the tandoori chicken is a must.
