Had high expectations for a good curry from the menu & photos, however the food is just OK. Service is friendly and efficient and the menu is broad with lots of options, including a good vegetarian section. Parking is a pain.

Ordered take-out dinner - ok food - the tandoori rooti (bread) was not fully baked; prices double whats posted on the site menu - apparently what's posted is for lunch; but pricey for the quality & quantity!

This restaurant offers Indian and Pakistan style foods. The portions are generous and the food is spicy. The Naan bread is exquisite. The prices range from $12 to $20 per entrée. If you go with a group, get various items and try each other's.

The decor was awesome! Service was the best I've had at a Pakistani restaurant! Samosas were good and then came the Chicken tikka. It was just not good. I packed it up and gave it to homeless people, thinking they don't care it's not spicy...More
