I've spent quite a bit of time in India over the past few years. And I can state, very honestly, that this is by FAR the best Indian food that I've had outside of India. The dishes are authentic, and the flavors are indistinguishable from...More

One of the good Indian restaurants serving authentic Indian food. I have many food restrictions and the restaurant took great care in preparing the food. A wide variety of vegan food to tickle your taste buds. I rate it A compared to many other restaurants.

An outstanding place--food was wonderfully prepared, portions were generous, staff were helpful and patient, and prices were astonishingly reasonable.
