We were very hungry and jumped at a buffet style meal. There were vegan choices (lentils and soup), and the regular tika dishes and tasty rice. It is about 1 block up from the main gate of Princeton University. We enjoyed the food but as a buffet it lacked some of the deeper heat I like in indian food. Go... More

Excellent dinner, diversified menu, prompt service, fair prices, pleasant atmosphere, spacious seating, and convenient location. We ordered many different main sources, all were excellent. They even had a goat dish recommended for the adventuresome individual. We all loved their Onion Daji appetizer.

Ordered chicken tikka that was raw. Aloo tikki was horrid. I'm a connoisseur of Indian food. Visit if you want to get ripped off. The chef should take cooking lessons.

We were 4 here on a dinner.The total amount of rice served for 4 of us , pooled from the quota of rice as part of the main dish ordered; was extremely less. And, even after a polite question, the staff didn't bother. Nothing great about the food either.

The food and service in this great Indian Restaurant is Fantastic and the chef even, with 24 hours notice, managed to provide me with a really tasty meal, eliminating the salt that I have to avoid in my diet. This was the second time of visiting this restaurant and both times, the quality of food and the service was amazing.

This place empty on a Saturday night in centre of Princeton shows you that curry is not so popular in the U.S. And that there are lots of great choices in Princeton. We ordered starters and main courses. The rice was beautifully cooked. Naan's were very good as were the starters. We did like the food but three of the... More

This small local restaurant in Princeton is indeed a hidden charm made all the more special by their friendly waiter who greets you like an old friend. The food is fresh and tasty and the closest we have found for flavour versus our British curry houses. From pakora to sag you have a plethora of dishes to choose from that... More

Family-owned restaurant with personalized service and not serving alcohol (probably due to Muslim religious policies), but they do offer a BYOB service for beer and wine. We ordered Tandoori chicken and it was fantastic, the biggest chicken tandoori we have ever been served. It was delicious along with traditional Nan bread and lamb curry. We had a feast on a...

We always love Indian food, so perhaps we are a bit biased? Food was excellent. Service was great. Restaurant was mostly empty on a Tuesday evening. We enjoyed the appetizer sampler for $12.99, with lots of different goodies, but maybe a bit too much battered and fried food. The dahi wada for $5.99 was good, but more bland than I... More
