Stopped by for lunch. Had seen other reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Had the Gao Shrimp Curry and was immediately happy. The curry was fantastic, the garlic naan really hit the spot. Too bad we were on vacation, because I would eat there very often.

Small, quaint restaurant with about 10 tables. On a busy Saturday night we only waited 10-15 minutes to be seated. Every dish ordered was fresh, hot and seasoned perfectly. Fantastic service. Clean restrooms.

I'd heard about RIB from friends a few times. Checked it out. Good (small) place with a very nice menu. Service is friendly and efficient. Food is good - not outstanding, but certainly good. I only found the garlic naan to be less than tasteful...More

Got the butter chicken and was pleasantly surprised as, with Indian, you sometimes get unpleasantly surprised. If you're eating in, I'd say plan ahead, I got take out and there was nowhere to even stand. There was a nice little crispy thing with my meal...More
