I was really impressed by the service, speed and tastiness of the food. The menu offers great variety. We enjoyed several dishes. Friendly wait staff. Naan was perfect - warm, bready inside and crispy on the outside. I was surprised that there were so few...More

This is a nice restaurant in Davis Square about 5-7 mins from the T. It had a nice ambiance. We had a group of ten from a wide background. They all liked the place for its decor, ambiance and food.

The tomato coconut soup is very good. The naan was fresh and the prices are reasonable. Curried chicken was very flavorful. If you like spicy hot you will like it here.

Admittedly a buffet can be risky, and I was late into the lunch hour but rice was not even warm, tandoori chicken was dried out. Salad vegetables were fresh however, pakora okay as were vegetables dishes. It was okay overall but not something for which...More
