My dad wanted to try this place for years so I finally took him there for Father's Day. We had never gone to a vegetarian restaurant. The hosts were lovely & answered our many questions. The food was fantastic! Such an exciting variety of spices...More

I've been a regular here since the 80s and always enjoy the food and atmosphere. We have regularly driven here from Michigan just for dinner. Indian nachos are truly magical. Pav Bahji is savory and available on a variety of formats. I can't recommend this...More
