The price is good $10.95. But the options are limited. Two meat dishes, two vegetarian dishes, rice, fish and veggie packers. A salad and a couple of sauces. The naan was made to order which was nice! Everything tasted great.

They do not honor Groupon and will refuse to accept it with all sorts of BS logics. We purchased a Groupon for a dinner for TWO and FOUR. when I tried their food for the first time, we didn't like it so i tried to...use my groupon for 4 people for take out and I talked with owner, to use just the amount that i paid( $20 ) but he didn't accept and he was very rude and greedy. Will never return here for another meal nor recommend anyone.More

This place should be closed. Absolute worst restaurant that the two of us have ever visited. I don't have time to share the whole story, but the experience was so traumatic we will never be able to forget it. This place has a bad reputation,...continually fails health inspections. I would stick to a restaurant downtown, not something run down like this place.More

They do not honor Groupon and will refuse to accept it with all sorts of BS logics. We purchased a Groupon for a dinner for FOUR. We ordered 4 main course items but we were 3 people. At the time of payment the owner who...was very rude said that the coupons say FOUR. We argued that we did however, purchase 4 items but his argument was that there should be FOUR people as well. This is the logic of typical Punjabi style business. The Groupon doesn't specify whether it should be 4 people or 4 items. So the owner used 4 "people" to win his argument. Will never return here for another meal nor recommend anyone.More

It is a small clean restaurant and highly recommended. We went for lunch and enjoyed everything we ate. The eggplant dish and butter chicken were good. Service was also good. Highly recommend it.

We went in on Friday evening and ordered spinach palak ,chana somosas, bhindi bhaji,vegetable biryani and garlic naan. ( we are vegetarians) We have eaten there before and it has been fine. This time we both got stomach aches that night and bad tummy's for...2 days after. Wondered if it was food that had sat on the buffet at lunch as some of the food did seem very over cooked.More
