Visited this place with cousins for a take away of Saturday. A long wait as they had lots of people eating in in the self service section and loads more waiting for a takeaway. Loved the chicken 65 and the seekh kebeb which is the only thing we ordered. But have heard the butter chicken and the biryani areretty good. With so many Indians eating there, it only means that the food is good. though I do hear that the service can be a bit rude and arrogant at times, the things we have to put up with for good food !

I have visited this restaraunt since the time it opened and the food has always been excellent. I personally know the owner and tried to steal his recipe for Chicken 65! No dice! Service has always been excellent and the friendly staff. If you must have Indian cusine, do trust that this location will satify your pallet!

We went with a group so we got quite a few things to share including Chicken Boti; Chicken 65; Butter Chicken; Chana Masala; Mutton Masala; Mutton Biryani; and another dish with some potato dumpling things. The sauces were amazing! The mutton masala was tender and the sauce was my favorite, but the chana masala was my favorite dish of the night. I would suggest ordering the raita if you’re going to get the Chicken 65. My favorite version of Chicken 65 is the non-fried version at Bhojanic, but this is my favorite fried/authentic version. The servings are not huge – they are individual sized servings – but still large enough to share with others if you plan for 1 entrée per person. Next time we're going to try more of their vegetarian options, but there will be a next time - for sure!

The prices were extremely reasonable. It's not fancy or pretentious.

A few other reviewers were upset with the Styrofoam plates, etc. but I couldn’t care less about what the food was served on as long as it was good – and I thought it was. You bus your own table, so it makes clean up easier. For first timers it can be a little intimidating if you don’t have someone to tell you the process. When you go, grab a menu off the front counter and get in line (it might be a good idea to have one member of your party grab a table if you’re in line on a busy night). The cashier is trying to get through the line as quickly as possible and doesn’t offer suggestions or upsells. You do need to order saffron rice and/or naan separately if you want either. Drinks are in a can so suck it up if you want a refill and buy another. There are pitchers and Styrofoam cups available if you want water for the table – again, it’s serve yourself for the water. Once you’ve placed your order and you’ve paid, you can wait at your table for them to call your name. As for the reviewer who said that you get funny looks if you’re not Indian, well, I didn’t notice any funny looks from the other patrons, but who cares about looks from other people – just enjoy your dinner.
