Reliable indian food & tons of variety to go with. They make some of the nicest small bites that have the right balance for one's palate. I would stay with their chicken dishes if you are a meat eater & in Veg, almost anything that is fried (you cant anyways go wrong with anything that is fried!). Is it gourmet?... More

First you need to be on a look out to see this place from the main road as the signs are not clear Decor is awesome with very good service Food is also good. Best part is the dishes are priced at one rate and one can make a choice what want Service is really efficient

Went for a company function. Place was inviting and the food was good but the cash bar was a joke! Over priced drinks in a clear plastic kitchen cup filled 1/4 way up!!!! $8 was average price for mixed drinks. People were charged different prices for same mixed drinks and beers. Very dishonest. Would not go here again. Don't like... More

it is a very good restaurant, good ambience but very expensive. We enjoyed the food but did not think it's worth the price we paid.

My experience: We went there for casual dinner with my brother's family. Food quality as compare to prices are not worth.Service was also very average. It took around 20 mins of waiting, 20 mins to place the order and another 25 mins to get the appetizers on Saturday evening.Prices around 40% high as compare to the food quality and service.

We stopped for a quick lunch. Just the perfect place, located next to a weight watchers! The food was delivered quickly and was tasty. The chicken soup was delicious! Followed by some tasty chicken with basil and ginger! We were out in half an hour.
