wait staff was not very attentive or pleased to be working. Food was moderate but nothing fantastic or made it stand out, ate my meal more or less because I was hungry not because i thought it tasted amazing.

The location is new and easy to find with lots of parking as no other place beside it is open yet. It is a bit further for us. The restaurant is new and every thing is nice and clean. The food is very good and fresh, and you choose how spicy you like it. I was disappointed with the Naan... More

After being closed for a move to a new location, that took 5 months - my favourite East Indian restaurant is open. Couldn't wait for my lunch gang so went solo. The buffet line up is expanded, and all very good. And the best butter chicken in in Calgary if not the whole world. They seem to have the right... More
