The food was amazing! Full of flavor and unique. I recommend the place for business, friends and family. The place is quite and lovely, unlike most restaurants nearby that are loud and noisy. Furthermore the service was excellent.

Centrally located, this restaurant serves excellent vegetarian food of India style. Absolutely brilliant, couldn't have asked for better vegetarian food. Masala Pappadam is a must try and so is their Dal Makhani. Food was as good as what I'd find back home in India.

The concierge at my 5 Star hotel recommended it for a Friday late lunch. It was perfect, just right. It was modern, clean, and the food was excellent. It had just enough spices to make it pleasantly spicy warm. Service and advice from the waiters...More
