We've eaten here several times, once or twice on a promo coupon and lately just paying full price. Of the dozen or so Indian restaurants we've eaten at this one has the best food. Prices are not cheap and servings are not huge, but we don't consider that a negative. Also the atmosphere is not very romantic. The restaurant area a big hall that can accommodate over a hundred people and typically there might be only a dozen to twenty people there. The service is prompt, friendly, and very efficient. The food variety is enormous, prepared and spiced to your liking.

We had dinner here and the place was almost empty. Not sure why but everything is very dark and from the outside you double check to see if it's really open or not. Why not add some light? Anyway; the food we ordered was very good. Alloo Tikki with chan was delicious, naan bread and chicken biryani tasted great. I was really hoping for a spicy hot sizzling vindaloo but it was more sweat then spicy. This was a bit disappointing but the flavors itself were good. Maybe during lunch this is a busy place but there was one more table while we were here which is a pity.

Stopped in on a weekday and had the lunch buffet. Buffet was hot, full and very flavorful. They also will bring you freshly grilled Naan bread after you start your meal. The restaurant is really well decorated, the ambience is great listening to Arabian/Indian music while dining was enjoyable as well. All for $12.

Went with my Family on family dinner, Food was Very Good. Service was Very Good, But the Bill did not had all the items we ordered, but the Grand total had everything we ordered. When we asked about some of the ordered items missing from the bill details., The server explanation was it's not printing details of the food ordered, but it was included in the total.
