At first we were offered a Garlic Naan brad to eat while waiting for food to be prepared, when thew garlic Nan arrived it was overcooked as hard as a plastic disc.
I expected poor food quart to follow but was pleasantly surprised by the main course dishes, I ordered mango chicken which came with rice for around $10, a great deal. My husband ordered Tandoori chicken which he was pleased with but unfortunately the rice served with that indian dish was sticky thai rice instead of Indian rice which would have suited the meal better. I scored 4 because Customer Service was superb, we did not have to pay for the nan bread. The owner went out of his way to tell us to let him know if we were unhappy with food and he would change for us, I would go back again but not order bread of any kind.

We recently moved to Pullman, had been on a walk at a nearby park on the Snake River, and decided to head into Lewiston to get some late lunch/early dinner. For mysterious reasons - maybe because it was Sunday afternoon - we had the restaurant to ourselves. Mysterious though because the food was beyond all expectations even with all the good reviews. The service was friendly, generous, helpful. But the best part is that the owner Praveen Khurana is a creative genius. The food was delicious, savory, slightly different than traditional Indian food with a Thai flare. I would expect to find a dish with this quality in a big city. We ordered off the extensive Vegetarian menu and were delighted by the sauces and spices and slivered almonds on each dish. The rice was perfect. The Chai tea was amazing. We were so happy to find Indian food near our new home base, but ecstatic to find some of the best we've ever had. Next time we'll try the Indian style Phad Thai!

Excellent food and service. Our group ordered couple of Vegiterain and Non Vegeterain Indian entrees. We were pleasantly surprised that both were good and equally authentic.

We came here from out of town to try some Indian food. We weren't even sure if it was open at the time we arrived, but we were welcomed in and given a table by the owner. He was very kind and suggested several dishes. We got the mango lassi and shared it between the two of us. It was smooth and sweet. For our appetizer, the owner suggested the garlic naan, which was very good. Our main dishes were the beef biryani and the mango chicken. The beef biryani was amazing, with very tender pieces of meat and a unique flavor of spices. The mango chicken also had tender pieces of chicken and came in a creamy mango sauce with a nice zing to it. Although we didn't order dessert, we were given dried mango fruit slices and mini cupcakes, which were complimentary. The ambience of the restaurant was relaxing, from the music to the decor and lighting. The manager had an exceptionally kind and respectful manner, and we felt very welcome from the moment we stepped in. Outstanding service and tasty cuisine.
