Not the same warm welcome like it was previously. The previous owner was a lot nicer and very accommodating. Service lacks now.

Ordered take-out butter chicken, rice, vegetable curry and beef samosas. All were tasty, hot and served to us by a friendly staff member. Would definitely go again.

Far more take-out oriented, with an eat-in option that seemed secondary (and with significantly higher prices). Chicken curry and lamb korma were okay, but nothing spectacular, and they forgot my naan order. Mango lassi was pre-made for take-out and that's what we were served eating-in....More

Today I ordered butter chicken with rice for take out. Apparantly this comes with salad on the side, which would be nice except 'salad' means lettuce with some carrot pieces and no dressing at all. The butter chicken barely had enough sauce to cover the...More
