I love Indian Cuisine but this place didn't turn up as per expectations. The servicing needs to be improved. Overall experience was good but the food could have been much better.

This is a wonderful little restaurant, serving excellent curries. I had the eggplant vindaloo, and it was as good, if not better, than the best Indian restaurants I have enjoyed in Seattle. The green onion Pratta was exceptional - fresh made and nice and flakey,...More

This is a new Indian Restaurant. It's main feature is the buffet, available lunch and dinner. All food is organic. Especially caters to vegans. No eggs, meat used. We went there for the weekday lunch buffet.
