Had no idea where to eat so googled and this restaurant had good ratings. Lived up to it. We had the Thali plate so we could sample different things. The Naan bread was great. Definitely a return place.

I recommend Tandoori chicken from the oven, a side of Saag (spinach), a side of Raita (cucumber and yogurt salad), papadam (crispy thin bread), and rice. This meal is both very healthy and filling and is not at all spicy.
