Very good. Excellent service. The medium heat of the fish curry was just right. The Onion Bhajia was excellent and delivered hot and quick from the frier. Basmatti rice was hot and perfectly done.

Delicious. Wonderful flavors. Good service, seating is limited and a bit tight. Make a reservation if you can. BYOB.

We had a very tasty meal here. We ordered chicken tikka masala and shrimp biriani and garlic naan - all were very good. The server was friendly and the food came fast. The bill was $38 (before tip) for those 3 items. There is nothing unique or really special to write about, but it's a good place to go if... More

My husband and I are regulars here. We come at least 2x a month. We love the chicken tikka masala paired with garlic naan. We have tried other Indian restaurants in the area but this one is the best. We bring friends all the time to try and everyone has loved it too. Highly recommend!

Every visit I have placed my trust in their choices and always been rewarded with some of the most delicious and satisfying meals. Service is welcoming, helpful, friendly and informed. You... More

Small intimate setting with great food. The staff is friendly, it's BYOB what's not to like . The food is authentic Indian and spiced to order.

We love Indian food. We have tried it all over America and throughout the world. Most Indian restaurants are family owned. So the key is -- who's in the kitchen and who manages the ingredients. Saffron is tops on both fronts. We always try Tandori Chicken on the first visit to an Indian restaurant. The had fresh, well-cooked chicken. We... More
