We make sure to eat here whenever we're staying with family in Lexington. The food is very tasty and the prices are reasonable--go for lunch and get the lunch specials! I'm no expert on Indian but the place feels cozy and authentic and the menu has loads to choose from.

This restaurant is one of the best of India restaurant in 10 miles radius. The only problem is that the quality is not always consistent. But I will recommend it

If you've never tried India food, don't be hesitant, it taste good. They use different spices so it's full of flavor. This is the best India restaurant, but a little small inside.
