We were here for dinner during our San Diego visit after being tired from a daylong outing. Found it extremely bad on food quality and customer service. The waitress was terrible at service and was very very rude. She forgot the drink that we ordered ( was supposed to come before the meal) , when the food arrived and we... More

Went there for the first time. Pretty good, spacious, good screens and bar section. a dish can be shared between two and is filing. I could get Indian taste from the food. Service was quick.

I am a pure vegan. I opted for vegetable biryani and mango lassi. Biryani was just like the one I had in paradise in Hyderabad. Very tasty, heavy on stomach and light on pocket (11 USD). I suggest that 2 persons can share 1 biryani. To top up, I had mango lassi. Mind you, this was way better than any... More

My wife and I had a meal here on 6 August. We had the goat curry and aloo bengon, the aubergines were well cooked but consisted more potatoes then aubergines. Whilst the goat tasted good, it was under cooked " tough and chewy". We also ordered 2 pratha's, which looked like butter chapati's. The restaurant could do with a good... More

My wife and I went there last night and absolutely enjoyed the food. The waitress was very friendly. She provided good recommendations. The food was absolutely delicious. I ordered the lamb biryani, spicy! It was indeed spicy and full of mouth watering flavor. Most indian restaurants that I've been to don't like to make the food spicy even when asked.... More

I have to say I'm thoroughly impressed. I was so happy to find an indian restaurant so close to my apartment that offers buffet lunch. I tried everything, and I liked it all. I went at 1 pm and although there weren't a ton of customers, the entire restaurant and buffet was stocked and spotless with all tables set. I... More

The restaurant is very understated, something like a transport cafe, but we had the lunch menu (was tempted by the buffet!), and the food was very good, and excellent value

I love Indian food, and this place sells it, but it's not what I'd call "authentic" Indian food. Quite frankly, I felt as though it catered a bit to American tastes (more mild, less flavors, less layers of flavor). The prices were good, the restaurant was clean and spacious, and the service was top notch. Our waitress and another gentleman... More

This Indian food, which was delivered to my hotel in an hour, was a little above average. I found the korma to be smooth and the chicken was well cooked. However the onion bhaji was not too dissimilar to "onion rings" and, perhaps as a result of being in a small styrofoam container, was soggy and unappealing, although it tasted... More
