The service was good with very friendly staff that had a happy attitude. The food is wonderful and cooked to perfection. The spicy dishes come in mild, medium or hot. Very quiet with a view of the main street. Highly recommended.

We decided to try these folks, and were very impressed with the food here, and the price. They do Turkish Pides, as well as traditional Indian curries (we tried only the Indian). Will most definitely be back!
