Went with 4 friends and each of us ordered something different. Had a great time sampling each other’s plates. Definitely get the Shahi Paneer and some Naan bread. Both were absolutely delicious. Had enough food to take home, too. Good service.

A wonderful place for Indian food at Niagara Falls USA. We never expected such a wide range of Indian cuisine at Niagara. The variety and taste of almost all dishes was really wonderful and so was the affordability. The dinner buffet was excellent.
