“Food not worth the wait”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

The service in this restaurant is awful. The food isn't that great. The people who came in after us must have been regulars. We had already been seated for about 10-15 minutes with our menus closed, waiting to order, when they walked in. They were warmly greeted, seated, offered a drink. They were brought their drinks, the maitre'd, who was taking orders, looked at us and said I'll be with you in a minute, and proceeded to take their order. The food comes out from the kitchen painfully slow. We waited forever for our appetizers, and when they finally got to us, parts of the dish were lukewarm. My dish, chicken saagwalla, the chicken tasted like it was potted, and the spinach sauce was lukewarm and tasteless. Needless to say, I am not going back there again.

“Bland food and VERY SLOW service”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is rated #1 in Toms River on Trip Advisor so we tried it-BIG mistake. We waited over an hour for our food and when it arrived it was the most tasteless Indian food we ever had. The chicken was bland and overcooked and the vegetable dish tasted like canned vegetables with a TraderJoe's sauce thrown on it. When the waiter asked how we liked our food and we noted it was bland, he offered to get us a bottle of hot sauce! Then the manager gave us a free dessert-mint chocolate ice cream with some chocolate sauce-sad to say that was the highlight of the meal.

“Delicious Indian Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013 via mobile

I moved down to the area from Edison several years ago. There's a large Indian population up there and the restaurants to go along with it. This place rivals anything I had up there. I had the vegetable Samosa and the Vindalloo. Both were flavorful with just enough spice and heat. I had take out and it was still hot when I got it home. They make fresh Nan which I also got. I will definitely be back for the lunch buffett. This is a place you will want to check out.

“Indian Food is delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Very good Indian Restaurant. We love to go on Thursday nights when they have the buffet. A good way to try a variety of dishes and they have lots of vegetarian options!

“Best Indian food in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The food here is always fresh, hot, tasty, and promptly delivered to the table. We have been here many times, bringing different friends. All have liked it. Definitely the place to go for Indian food in Ocean County
