“Yum”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Recommend this restaurant! Food was really nice, we had butter chicken and saag paneer plus naan- mmmmmm!!! Staff were a bit unhelful to start with but then one waiter seemed competent and things went smoothly. A little expensive but worth it.

“What Happened?”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

I used to drive one hour out of the way to come here because I had had the second best Chicken Tikka Masala in the state of Florida here, but it changed. Now it is just average. Their buffet is also average. I know most of us in the U.S. think buffets are gross, but Indian buffets are the best I have ever seen and they definitely dropped the ball on this one.

“Surprisingly good Indian”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

I stumbled upon this place on Yelp. There's not much in the way of non-chain dining in the area, and people seemed to like the food here. I really was blown away. The decor is nothing to get excited about, and the restaurant is in an out-of-the-way strip mall/office park, but the food is really good. Service is attentive, and prices are reasonable for the quality of food (probably on the high end for this area though, with entrees at $15-20). This is a perfect local Indian place for people staying in nearby hotels.

“Nothing special here”
Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

Nothing special here. Bread was brought when we recurve the check. The populate chai tea taste like regular black tea with milk. Buffet food was decent.

“Indian Delight”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Near the corporate parks of Fort Lauderdale /Pompano Beach sits a hidden gem in Indian Cuisine dining. It has been in existance for over 5 years when it first started out as a little shop, and has evolved into a large restaurant that has one of the best Indian food entrees at a modest cost. The interior has come a long way and is delightful to entertain guests, clients or just a family dinner outing. The brunch on Sunday is one of the best Indian food brunches we have experienced and the restaurant gets filled up quickly on Sunday. Weekdays, lunch time is quite busy with all the diners from the corporate park and in the evenings it gets filled as well,but rarely do you have to wait. We usually go on a weekend evening with our children, and enjoy the atmosphere, food and excellent service. The menu is extensive with so many great appetizers and entrees to choose from along with the many different types of bread. They offer a nice variety of wines and other beverages to enhance your meal. We try to go at least once every two months since the food is so good. People come from as far south as Miami and as north as Palm Beach. They have just opened a second locaton in Royal Palm beach.
