To fatty food, definitely to much pepper added to our all dishes. Only marsala was OK. Restaurant room smell not good.

If you are local, this place is great for pick-ups. We came and placed an order for 14 people for takeout. They were so willing to accommodate and the service was timely and friendly. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Try anything lamb. Loved the chops, the garlic naan and the Gosht Biryani. The land and sauce in the Gosht Biryani was perfect. Also had the sample appetizers, all were very good but I'm still not sure what each item was.

The staff are friendly and attentive, and the ambience is dated but pleasant. The food, however, is way overpriced and . . . not good. I had the worst chicken korma of my life here. Chicken korma is always sweet, whether made with almonds or...More
