“Excellent!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

Absolutely fantastic. I think it's better than Spice of India was. Service was excellent. Lamb curry was great but could've been a bit spicier. Good wine selection and reasonable prices. Razz did a good job. We'll be back soon.

“good food but a little expensive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 2, 2014

Really good food and staff, good atmosphere. The chef takes care to produce fresh food and very nice regional Indian sauces. I thought the prices were a little high, especially compared to other Indian restaurants. If you like it spicy you have to insist you can take it. They back down the spice to suit the typical American palate I'm sure.

“Light, fresh food with a great staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We visited Lehja to celebrate a family birthday. It turned out to be a real treat! The food is much lighter than we expected buts still had the flavorful spiciness one expects in Indian cuisine. They recommended dishes for the children and tailored the heat accordingly. The manager spent a good deal of time chatting with us and brought samples of things as we talked. The wait staff was attentive but not intrusive -- everyone was friendly. Certainly among the best Indian food we've enjoyed.

“Delicious dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2013

We had 2 tasty appetizers, chaat and the gobhi, with the most amazing drinks (black cherry old fashion and the snake charmer margarita). Our entrees were seafood curry and tandoori cod. Both of those were wonderful, and paired with very nice wines. The mushroom and truffle oil naan was unbelievable. Service was warm, helpful, and well timed. It was a lovely meal and we'll go back.

“Unbelievable Flavor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2013

My family and I had Christmas dinner at Lehja. This was our first time here. Everyone we came in contact with from start to finish was extremely friendly. The restaurant is beautiful. Our server was very helpful, suggesting items we might like. LOVED the Gobhi Manchurian cauliflower! The chicken in my Tikka Masala was so tender. Unbelievable flavor. We will absolutely return.
