After a long time, ate really nice indian food ! we ordered shrimp dum biryani, nehari lamb shank, samosa chat appetizer, pista kulfi dessert, tandoori roti,

everything was ordered mild. And that definitely helped.
samosa chat is filling and is really meant for 2 people. we feared that we would be too full if we finished it. but no worries. the rest of the food was just as tasty.
the dum biryani came out authentic ! with dough wrapped on the top. really flavorful biryani. we will be going back just for this.
the lamb shank could have more meat. It was a big bone with two small pieces of meat. the gravy was delicious and the meat was tender and loved the dish. But we really felt that it needed more meat for the price. If you order just this dish, you will be left hungry.
the pista kulfi was so so.
we had to order all the above between 2 people and we had very little left overs to take home. so it is small pricy portions.
overall enjoyed the food and will be back to taste other dishes.

Staff was friendly, if a little unpolished. They don't try to turn the tables over quickly and we were left alone to socialize after the meal, which was nice. The food came out at a reasonable time. Not overpriced. I ordered the Butter Chicken and I will definitely get it again.

Enjoyed a dinner here with a friend on a Friday night. It was not crowded. Wait staff were very nice and helpful with suggestions. It feels very authentic. Food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable. With an appetizer, a main course, and a side of bread, both myself and my friend had enough to take home for another meal. It's the best Indian food I've had in the area. It isn't the fanciest place in terms of the dining area and some tables are set relatively close to the swinging doors to the kitchen, but other touches feel upscale such as the tableware and formality of the wait staff. It took some time for the food and the check, which I appreciate as an indication that the food is being made to order and there is no rush to get you out the door. I will definitely be back.

Was there for the buffet. It was ok at best. I expected a higher standard for thos place. I think my wife enjoyed it more than I did.

This was excellent when it first opened years ago, but not only has it gone downhill, there are now many other Indian choices in the immediate area. Better options elsewhere.
