This is near another Indian restaurant that I've eaten at before. The Biryani we ordered was basically chicken gristle and undercooked rice. Seattle is replete with good Indian places. This is not one of them.

Menu is big. Papdo chat and kebabs are fantastic overall food tried some other items from menu but they were okay. Overall I would say its a okay restaurant but not the best Pakistani food.

Given the huge amount of restaurants in the area, this Indian restaurant is not even near the best. But, if you dont take others into consideration, this restaurant can cater to your needs. The tandoori platter and the naan are the best available in the district though. It gets a bit costly

It's a buffet lunch. Pretty inexpensive. Does not at all look inviting. The FLAVOURS however were a delight. I tried a small portion of everything and the winners overwhelmed the not so greats. There were no real losers. At least 8 different meat or vegetable entrees, multiple appetizers, salad, condiments, and an amazing rice pudding. Under $10. The host is... More

My family loves Indian food, so when staying in a new area, we like to try a local Indian place. Garam Masala was just a couple of blocks from where we were staying. We were tired, so we ordered from their online take out menu. They called about 10 minutes from the time we had selected to say it was... More

The welcoming atmosphere at this restaurant was an essential part of our dining experience. The second item was the wonderful aromas that assailed our noses upon entry. The food was well prepared and beautifully presented...just the right amount of spiciness, the rice was beautifully prepared and naan was excellent. Eat there, you'll like it.
