Came here for lunch on a Wednesday. We arrived around 12:00 and when we left at 1:00 pm it was incredibly busy, so you might want to plan ahead and get a reservation. The food is great. There wasn't a bad thing we tried. The goat cheese naan bread is particularly good. Portions are filling. Staff is so attentive. I... More

I have had Indian food 6-8 times in my life and never liked it. That all changed last night when we dined here. The food was phenomenal from the eggplant and spinach appetizers to the lamb entree I could not have been more pleased. On top of the great food, the place has a good vibe: fun but not too... More

Although booked more than two weeks in advance, our not-so-convenient 8:45pm reservation was hard to come and it is only after another 30minutes of waiting in the super-crowded, noisy narrow foyer of this very popular-happening eatery that we actually got our table. Useless to say we were a bit disconcerted by the delay but sure enough the maitre D quickly... More

We visited this place during restaurant week when the place welcomes client at fixed discounted price and menu. First of all, it's not easy to get the reservation on these days as a lot of local people know and love the place. It is always full. Second, we purposely order different dishes so we can try everything, and never leave... More

I've eaten here for lunch and dinner and everything we ordered was fabulous! You don't even have to like Indian food to eat here. They have traditional favorites so those seeking tikka something or tandoori won't be disappointed, but the food is done so well that even people who hate traditional Indian food (my sister), still love eating here. Try... More

Delicious food with wonderful flavor, texture and presentation! :) With a family of 5 Indians and picky eaters, everybody left satisfied. Service was good, attentive and not overbearing. We got crispy spinach chaat which was creative and tasty. Kabobs were cooked just right and with right amount of spice. Biryani was authentic and delicious. Lamb curry was perfect with meat... More

Monday night 9pm reservation is all they had, wasn't sure how this would work out, 10 minutes after 9, they ask if we need an appetizer as an apology for not having a table ready, 9:25 rolls around and we get our table. We sit down, look over the menu, tons to choose from, we start with a few appetizers,... More

Being an Indian, I was quite disappointed that the food lacked a punch or the required flavors. But I do understand that the dishes have been toned down to meet local guest expectations. Palak chaat was not crispy enough but slightly on the oily side. It was highly recommended and clearly a fast moving dish. My wife had it a... More

If you are a foodie and have a taste for Indian cuisine in a quality setting you definitely need to eat here. The service and presentation is great. The first visit last year I went for the 6 course dinner with wine parings. The flavors from each dish were fab. This time I stuck to a single course with appetizer.... More
