Our family absolutely loves this restaurant. The employees are very nice. The food is great. It is the only Indian restaurant I can eat at without feeling sick from heavy sauces. Food is fresh, made to order, and hot. Only drawback is it's small so...More

I am a regular here. All of the sauces that they use for their various dishes are fresh and tasty. The onion chutney is made in their kitchen. The owner's parents work in the kitchen and their attentiveness to food quality shows. I enjoy the...More

I'm hesitant to write a positive review of this Indian restaurant because it's getting very hard to find a seat most of the time. But it's unkind not to share. We've been going there for five years and during that time it's been "discovered" by...More

My husband and I have been regular customers for years because the food is always fresh and tasty. We generally order take out because their space is on the small side and it is very popular. Our favorite dish is shrimp saag - just excellent....More

Top notch ingredients with deep flavors, in spite of the all the high ratings we were still surprised by how delicious everything was. We were utterly delighted by each item we ordered. Some of the best Indian food in New England.

I have eaten here many times while visiting my family and decided to finally write a review. My family eats dinner there once a week at least, and who wouldn't, given the taste and the quality of the food, and their very attentive and pleasant service, no matter how busy the place is! They have an extensive menu, but do try their Dal Maharani and Royal Bhindi (okra) if you go. My family is vegetarian but I have tried several of their non-vegetarian dishes. Amongst their desserts my favourite is a very high quality Rasmalai.They have a pretty decent wine list too. If you enjoy Indian Food then do go - you won't be disappointed! The restaurant is owned and run by two brothers from Northern India. Both gentlemen have a very pleasant disposition, creating a warm and friendly ambience! I wish them still more success. If you go without a reservation on weekend nights, wait times could be upwards of 45 minutes!
