After getting the attention of a restaurant employee, we requested a table for eight. We were asked to sit and our table was prepared within 10 minutes. The food was simply amazing. Three people in... More

This is a really solid Indian restaurant. Everything we had was fresh, delicious, and authentic, better than most Indian restaurants anywhere as far as quality and taste, from the tandoori to the dal to the naan. Really pleased. Service while friendly is just awful (slow, late, wrong,) but if you ignore this and want a great meal in intimate surroundings,... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. The food and the service were fantastic. Many options on the men. I enjoyed the fish tikka which was a very large portion of grilled fish and vegetables.

This eatery is located in The Village. We love Indian food, so we stopped here for dinner. They have an extensive menu. and very attentive, kind, polite wait staff. Their Samosas, filled with pork, very tasty, but a little dry - served with a wonderful sweet sauce. Their lamb naan was to die for. Chunks of savory lamb embedded in... More

The food exceeded all of our expectations. We set same reservations that they were more than willing to accomodate, even with the huge crowds of people. Its next door/conneced to a cute little gift shop you can peruse while you wait. My favorite was the chicken tikka masala, the masala tea, and the garlic naan was phenomenal! If you get... More

The food was excellent. Pure Indian style Momos (Pot Stickers). We had tandoori chicken which was cooked well. All the dishes we had did not contain any artificial colors, this is very rare for the indian dishes we had (Tandoori, Chicken Butter Masala, Paneer Tikka Masala) Ambience is also good and even better was the location.

I am not a big fan of Indian food, but my 8 year old daughter and I thought that we would check this place out. I was surprised with how much we actually liked. The food is delicious! I like the atmosphere and the restaurant was not too crowded when we went. The staff was alright. I was disappointed that... More

Food very disappointing. Don't have the Chicken and spinach - all spinach and little chicken. Also had a lamb dish that was all sauce and no lamb. Service not too good either. Food delivered but no one came to check everything was ok. Premises a bit dismal and dark.
