This is a small restaurant with personalized service. One man takes your order and cooks your food. It is surprisingly fast service. We ordered shrimp curry and lamb which was cooked with vegetables in a coconut milk sauce. Really good. The lamb fell off the bone. You can have it mild, little spicy or hot. The rice is tasty as it is made with spices. I loved the flat bread. Lots of butter and spices. The curry shrimp my husband had was also very good. The price for two dinners with rice and bread was less than $40 with tip. We had enough to take home for another meal. We intend to come back!

The place is creepy dark and just looks filthy. The food was not at all what I think of when I go to an Indian restaurant. My son ordered a beef dish, and of course you think chuck roast or something, but they used corned beef! It was disgusting. They are out of about everything on the menu when you go there. Would not recommend this restaurant to anyone who has had high quality Indian food elsewhere!!

Thought we were ordering Indian food but they brought out "fusion" Thai-Indian. It was edible but we really wanted Indian food.
The owner was very nice.

Was hoping to like this place and we just couldn't. Didn't look very clean and the food was not impressive at all.

We had the lamb, falling off the bones. The Indian bread perfectly seasoned and toasted. The other two choices excellent as well. The owner was also the server. Very attentive. There were 4 of us. And about 3 choices sufficient for all of us. My kids thought it was one of the best Indian restaurant experience they had ever had.
