A very unique Indian restaurant. The food is very flavorful and non-greasy. I had the combo with spinach feta paratha, punjabi dal, and pineapple ginger lassi - perfect in size and taste. i left feeling full but not disgusted afterwards, with enough room to share their new black-cardomom and pepper icecream shake!

I have been there with family a few times already because we love this place. The first time we were here we tried the different parathas and instantly loved the food and the experience. The Strawberry Mint lassi was great, kids loved it. The owner is personable and made sure we got a good experience there. I felt we got Shanik like experience (in Redmond) but didn't have to drive all the way to Seattle. Will be visiting soon!

Just came in here for a group work lunch and although they don't take reservations, they ensured we go their large family-style table in the center of their restaurant. Awesome.

The server was super friendly, helpful, and accommodating. When some of our dishes were taking a bit longer than others, he brought out complimentary salads for them. Love this! It's not about the money, it's about making the customer feel welcome and he totally did that.

The food is really good; it's like Indian fusion. Everything is quite spicy, which I love, but be wary for those who can't handle spice. We had a fellow in our group who can't handle any, said no spice, and it still was too spicy. LOL.

Our group tried their nearly everything on their lunch menu: desi tacos, kabobs, kathi rolls, lamb trikone, and the balle balle combo. Everything was really tasty and really reasonably priced. We also tried many different kinds of Lassi (smoothies); yum! The server also worked it out with the kitchen to bring us stuffed naan breads for appetizers. If it's not on the menu, simply ask, you'll usually be pleasantly surprised what they may be able to accommodate.

I highly recommend anyone looking for some unique and tasty dishes come here. I look forward to hopefully trying their dinner if I'm ever in the area at night. And the service is top-notch.

We tried this recently opened restaurant and were truly impressed. This place has Indian food with a twist. Interesting experiments with the cuisine and all seem to have worked. For drinks, we started with Masala Lassi and Strawberry Mint. Both were great. Their Masala Lassi, sold elsewhere as Salty Lassi was a notch higher than regular Indian places. We sampled their Sweet Rosewater and Mango Chilli flavors and they were both very fresh and good. Yogurt is made fresh per the chef and they use real mangoes for the Mango Lassi. The addition of a spicy touch to Mango Lassi made it really unique. This is what I will order next time as a full glass.

For main course you can either order their combo (which I think is a better choice) or order a la carte. We ordered two combos, one, Fiesta Premium Bread with Punjabi Dal and two, Hurry Ali Peas Premium Bread with Firecracker Sauce. Both were excellent and different. I also sampled their Dalicious Parantha and will certainly order that over the Fiesta next time if I happen to be in more traditional mood. If you are wondering what a Parantha is, it is an Indian flatbread:(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paratha)

Their wine selection is limited but Yes, from Stevens was an OK blend to go with the food. We summed it up nicely with a dessert Parantha (Coconut Cardamom), have not had a sweet Parantha in a long time and this was perfect.

Potion sizes are just right, this is not a place to go gorge on a buffet. Price is on the higher side and be prepared to spend $20-$30 per person. Place is clean, ambience is neutral, we enjoyed the outside on a sunny Seattle day but the large inside community table also looks appealing. They do have a chutney bar, similar to what you see in traditional buffets.

Chef/owner is a young guy, Abhishek, very pleasant and came over to talk to everyone.
