The staff was kind, the atmosphere feels like two chickens mating in my mouth blasting the flavor of hard labor. I am glad brown men could make my meal in the kitchen. As I love non-white men preparing food, it makes it so much more multi-cultural.

I have now visited this restaurant twice, once for an evening meal from the menu and again for the weekday buffet lunch. While the atmosphere is pleasant enough, the servers are a bit distant to some and friendly to others. Water is kept full, but attention to satisfaction with your meal or returning to see if you want or need... More

Chicken Tikka Saag and Chicken Curry - amazing dishes. Also, loved the Chicken Naan. Service was great!

I saw some decent reviews for the place and thought I'd give them a try; I wish I hadn't. The food was merely ok. The serving size was very small, about half what I'd get at my normal Indian place but more expensive. It definitely wasn't worth the money, and I wouldn't return even if I had a coupon. The...

Good indian food and great value. If you are a vegetarian, there is a long list of dishes for you to choose from. I have not tried their buffet but the service staff are nice and you can generally get a seat without a long wait. I love the garlic naan. It is soooooo light and fluffy.

We have been here a few times. The food is absolutely amazing. I haven't been for the buffet, just table service. Chicken Tiki Saag is great; so are all the flavors of Nan. Service is terrible. Even when there are one or two other diners. The men (servers/owners?) stand at the bar with their backs to the patrons. We had... More
