We have been to Garam Masala several times and never felt disappointed. Food is wonderful as always. Being vegetarian, we love their Dal Tadka, Malai Kofta and Baingan Masala. Staff is friendly and nice.

Love the entrees for two. Can't go past the mango chicken and coconut rice. The service is quick and the staff is pleasant and the restaurant is clean and spacious. Highly recommend it.

Perfect servings sizes, friendly staff, quality Indian food and it's really not that expensive for a night out/lunch date. What else is there to say?
