My husband had just got back from Mumbai when we found this place. He said he felt transported. The restaurant is like walking into a living room and the woman who is the hostess and owner is like an Indian mother that just wants to feed you. She makes suggestions and took us through a delicious meal. The restaurant is... More

The restaurant is casual and small but nicely decorated with comfortable seating. But the food is spectacular and reasonably priced My wife and I live in... More

This quaint, converted house on Main St makes the perfect setting for this family run restaurant. We have been many times and enjoy the Bollywood movies playing on the back wall, so fun! Just this last time I noticed family photos in the back room. We feel like guests in a friends home who has invited us for a delicious,... More

Even though I live in North Carolina, I have eaten here 3 times in the past 2 years as I make a point of stopping in every time I visit my family in Half Moon Bay. It is a standout as an "ethnic" option on the coastside. They offer a full dinner menu, but my most recent trip I had... More

I was really excited to try this restaurant because I've loved Indian food for years and had it many times all over the Bay and Sacramento area. We arrived to find only one other person dining at the restaurant so the lady sitting at the desk told us to "sit anywhere." We wanted to sit by the window (there were... More
