I spotted this restaurant last week and tried it for the first time tonight. It's one in a long strip of restaurants in this little center, and the atmosphere isn't anything special at all--just a typical storefront place. But the food was a very pleasant surprise. I tried a spicy chicken/rice dish. (I can't find an online menu to find the exact name of it.) That plate alone would be worth going back for again and again! There were a few carry-out customers when I was there about 6 p.m. on a weeknight, but I hope the word spreads. A place like this deserves to be packed with appreciative customers!

Got take-out here on Christmas Day 2009 for the whole family. Nice people in a small shop. Spicy patties, lamb two ways, and chicken tandori. All with different accompanying side dishes, along with rice and absolutely huge naan pressed out right on the grill (bread to die for). Each big meal for about $12, except for the house specialty that was about $14. Worth every penny. If you eat in, there is unlimited free hot tea - local herb. There were lots of cheaper things on the extensive menu, but I wanted a full experience. Small shop, but seemingly very hygenic. **In an area, however, I was advised might not be the best after dark.** So, go early for dinner or take-out, or go for lunch. In a convenient shopping center with plenty of easy parking, across from the McDonalds, on a main street. Your taste buds will thank you.
