“Fatty food !”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We ordered from this place to take away and were quite disappointed by the food. The very few lamb pieces were swimming in a huge "lake" of fatty sauce. We did not finish the food and my stomach did not like it neither ;o) This has nothing to do with Indian food in general, which I love ! Avoid the place.

“Good food, good staff”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

The food was very good and the staff did a good job. the atmosphere is exactly what one would expect to find in a Indian restaurant in America.

“Don't ear here”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The 3 condiments for our narn were crusty' dried out & half full... yuck. The lamb so tough you couldn't chew it. The only decent sized portion was unseasoned bastimie rice half a plate full. Did I mention the dirty plates? Oh yea prices for this awful food in a dirty place way high. Never eat here again!!!

“Delicious!”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

Not sure why there's bad reviews for this place. My husband and I have gotten food here at least 5 times in the past year or two, and we've always had good experiences, both with take out and eating in. Incredible chicken tikka masala, delicious naan, and amazing coconut soup. Yum!
