We've been here quite a few times, but the most recent had some issues. The food is very good and they now have a very good wine & beer selection, even tasting flights. We went on Valentine's day (early, not crowded), yet they didn't want to accept my restaurant.com cert (even though there were no such conditions on it). The waitress spilled water on us, though was apologetic. Beware of times when they have live music - it can be too loud & not good.

Our party was looking frward to great Indian food, which is a favorite of all in our group. We had heard that this was the best Indian restaurant in the area (there are many,) and while it didn't live up to that billing it was pretty good. The hostess was very welcoming and actually served as our waitress, as there were few people there, probably because we were dining relatively early. Menu choices were traditional, with lots of variety. The only real disappointment was their idea of degrees of spicyness. The hostess asked each how spicy each wanted their entree. Two wanted hot and two medium. The two hot dishes were low medium at best, and were sent back for more spice. Even then they were nowhere near usual Indian degree of spicy and the waitress had to bring a bowl of hot pepper sauce to get it up to the desired level. The two who wanted medium spicy found it mild. After two trips to India we know what Indian Hot is supposed to be! Prices were reasonable.

I had been here from their lunch buffet once. I was not too impressed. Ended up having dinner here on a Sunday night as Akbar next door had 35 mins wait. We were the only customers so I hope we will get some good fresh food. The food was below average. Veggie Pakora Platter quantity was less for its price. Malai Kofta gravy was just some red curry and not creamy rich white as it is supposed to be. The Kofta in it was the same pakora they had served in the starter. Fish Tandoori was tasteless and chicken masala was not great either. Overall did not like the food.
