Visited on a Tuesday night for dinner. Interior is smallish but comfortable, nicely decorated; service was courteous and efficient. It's a good thing we made a reservation, but no crowding was evident. The menu includes a good selection of local bottled beers. My dinner of Punjab-style curried black-eyed peas and shitake mushrooms was excellent, likewise my wife's salmon from the Tandoor oven. Portions were ample, not large. Overall just a fine experience for dinner. Cost including tip (but no drinks or dessert) was about $26/person.

Chose this place based on reviews from Yelp, and were not disappointed! We even tried tandoori salmon, and LOVED it. The service was phenomenal. If we're back in the area at any point, we'll DEFINITELY be back. We even considered visiting while we were still in town!

The food was so good we kept adding to our order until we thought we would burst. The staff was gracious and welcoming. The menu imaginative many thing we had never had and never seen on an asian menu before. The cookbook is just as good, all the recipes work and they are delicious, but so much work. Try the mushroom and the shrimp fritters appetizers.

Everything thing in this restaurant is great, most of the time you really need to make a reservation. But, it is worth it. Best Indian restaurant in the Bay Area.

Had the chance to meet up with old friends in Berkeley, and went to Ajanta in the northern part of town. A bit of a hike from downtown Berkeley, so be sure to go by taxi if you don't have a car. The service was very personal and excellent during the whole meal, and the food was just as good as the best Indian restaurants I've visited in London. Very good wine menu must be mentioned as well. Had trouble getting a taxi when I left, but the owner was very helpful and finally succeeded:)

Highly recommended indeed.
