We lost a lot of Indian restaurants in Ventura recently but, thankfully, we still have this one. The food is very good and the staff is extremely polite and on the ball.

My Aunt and Uncle come here often and were thrilled when they found out I love Indian food. 6 of us went for dinner and two are vegans. We all shared entrees and baskets of different Naan's. We left stuffed.

Delicious. We were there for early dinner. Garlic Naan, spicy Naan, Curry Chicken, rice, lentil soup, Nepalese Chow Mein, chicken tikka masala. Even the iced tea was better than most. We over ordered. And we are not locals. Didn't want all that delicious food going to waste. So we cleaned our plates. Small restaurant, easy to find, plenty of parking.... More

We ate lunch here. There is a fairly extensive menu featuring both vegetarian/vegan and meat dishes at $8.95 per dish. We tried/shared four items and all were delicious. Service was very good.

I've reviewed before but I thought it might be helpful to note that they have a gluten-free menu. I go for lunch regularly because it's near my work but we also go for holidays because it's guaranteed to be a good experience. You can't go wrong with the Chicken Tikka Masala and garlic naan. We have a family member who... More

We went for dinner on a recommendation and we were very happy with everything. The butter chicken and lamb dishes we ordered were fantastic and the garlic naan delicious. It was busy but the service was great. We are going back soon!

The lunch service is always fast. The staff is friendlier when you've been a couple of times. We've spent a couple of Christmas Eves there and it always feels special. The food is great and while I'm not always adventurous if I don't know the ingredients I will always try the soups they give me. You can be sure whatever... More

One of only a few of our regular go-to restaurants in an otherwise bleak or boring Ventura venue. Wonderful, tasty dishes with meat ranging from beef to chicken to lamb and yak, also vegetarian treats. Suz gravitates toward the lamb Korma, I to the lamb Tikki and a grand range of beer and other drinks to go with. The owner,... More

Very nice ambiance, friendly atmosphere and outstanding service . The food is reasonably priced, consistently good with the right amount of spices just enough to not overwhelm the taste and truly reflect the specific nuances of Nepalese and Indian cuisine . Fresh baked naan is to die for.
