The service was acceptable but the food was unique and very good. We got in late from our day and were open until 10 pm.

Usually I stop in once a year for something spicy. The atmosphere is ok and the staff is friendly and you ask for spicy, you get spicy. Good for takeout too.

Food from this restaurant is good but restaurant itself lacks atmosphere and could do with renovation. However, take-out is reasonably priced and delicious.

This was good but only average Indian food. I may be judging it more harshly because just days before had an incredible dinner at Everest in Westport, and this didn't measure up to that level.
