Best Indian food in town. I like my meals very mild and they always make it just right! Try the aloo gobhi. I would eat here every day if my wallet would let me.

If you are craving Indian food, this is a decent option. Food is tasty, but your clothes will smell after you leave the restaurant. Kitchen isn't fully closed and probably has a poor exhaust system. Samosas were good. Chilli paneer with grilled veggies was average.

Had lunch here with colleagues. The lunch consist of a buffet with approximately 12 dishes. The food was just OK, typical buffet fare. The interior and exterior were a bit shabby. The staff was very friendly and the prices reasonable.

We had dinner here. There were lots of choices on the menu. The service was nice. The two dishes we got: peas with mushrooms and chana masala, were okay. The naan was good. I would go back to try their other dishes.

It is really not a GREAT restuarant as the name says. I am a regular customer to the restaurant. They literally charge you for EVERYTHING. The young man at the counter also charges for cracking a smile at the customers. He really needs to learn...More
