“Don't miss, Reserve ahead of time”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

This is one the best ranked Indian restaurant in city. Prior reservation is must because it very busy that itself tells about the quality of food. Staff is very co-operative, we had to postphone the reservation and they have accommodated us on same day as per our convenience. Parking is as usual difficult but on street meter parking is available.

Visited here whilst at the Microsoft conference with a friend who's vegan. Both of us loved the food. Pitty they were so busy that we ended up with a bar table. Next time we'll know to book !

“Sorry - Average”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

On holiday from UK so warned the waiter the "National dish of England" as it says on their menu, the Chicken Tikka Masala would be tested, it failed miserably, tasted nothing like any Tikka Masala I've ever had in the UK and we've been eating curries for last 25 years on a monthly basis. As a curry it's nice but please change the name - its not a Tikka masala.
The rest of the meal was ok. Had better, infact we had just flown down from NY and while there had a curry in the Brick Lane curry house which was better.
However ,the service was excellent and could not be faulted.
I will add this though, the accoustics in this place were terrible and the noise was unbelievable, it is the loudest restaraunt I have ever been in. We were on the right hand side of the door near the corner and could here the entire conversation of the people on the left hand side of the door as everyone seemd to shouting to be heard. Not good for a romantic meal, would have been easier just to text each other rather than trying to shout and listen.
Tip for the management - to make the accoustics better either put more stuff on the walls or carpet some of the floor area to kill the echo.

“Great tasting menu and service”
Reviewed July 13, 2014 via mobile

This meal wasn't just the best Indian food we've had but one of our best meals, period. Our server Oksana was knowledgable and fun as well as super accommodating. I had the 4 course vegetarian tasting menu with wine pairings and the other two in our party had the 6 course regular tasting menu with wine pairings. Oksana pulled all this off without a hitch, and every course was superb. The spinach appetizer is out of this world. Great experience all around!

“Go for the Spinach!”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

This is a very good Indian restaurant - all of the dishes I tasted were flavorful and interesting. But the SPINACH is Out Of This World. I do like spinach but even if you don't you have to try this. I think it may be one of the best dishes I have ever tasted - it is undoubtedly the best vegetable dish I have ever tasted. Just writing this makes me want to hop on the ACELA and go get some.
