“pretty darn good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2012

Service: Definitely, above average. The owner chatted with us and spoke to us like we were long time friends. She also offered samples of the dishes before we bought.

Ambiance/Price: Cafeteria-like, the food is largely precooked and on display. For lunch, you will get rice, naan (garlic or plain) and 1 ($5.99), 2 ($6.99), or 3 ($8.99) items of your choice. I shared an $8.99 dish with my mother and brought home the leftovers to my dad who ate it with rice cooked at home. Please note that the dish would not have served three if we didn't have are own rice at home. The naan is fresh to order and mango lassi is available for $2.99. You can also have 2 chutneys (choose tamarind, mango, onion, cilantro, etc) with each meal.

Food. The food is pretty darn good -- especially for the price.

Overall: This is a great place to have lunch or pick up food. Not a restaurant to entertain at but definitely a good place to eat if you want something good at a reasonable price.
