My nephew took us here---thank you, thank you! Nice atmosphere and lots of choices (also can choose how hot you want your spices). My chicken biryani was really good--nicely spiced, lots of big pieces of chicken. If I lived in Austin, I'd be back here all the time.

This restaurant serves my very favorite food in Austin. But the inside of the restaurant is so noisy I can't really enjoy it there. So I use this place for takeout and enjoy it as a picnic or at home. I've tried almost everything on the menu and have liked everything. Tiki Masala and Mango Lemonade are two favorites.

We ate lunch here September 11, 2016. I had the vegetable Korma, my dining partner had the lamb Biryani, and we shared order of naan and garlic naan (a definite must try). The food was plentiful, the flavors were spot on, but I found it just a little odd that naan is not included with entrees. Regardless, the prices weren't... More

It's easy to find delicious, vegan, Indian food at an affordable price. Portions are generous. Mango lemonade is a must have.

The kabobs are incredible and the veggies they are served with are a great compliment. Easy to get in and out for a nice lunch with friends.

A little bit fast food like, but not bad. Coming from the UK I spend so much time trying to find decent Indian food in Texas. This place is pretty decent. The surroundings and service could be better but the food is good.

Limited menu, but tasty offerings. Good fast food spin for Indian cuisine..trendy, casual & low-key. Menu includes most popular Americanized Indian cuisine flavors. Good for lunch. Patrons order @ cashier & food brought to table. Ambiance compares with Pei-wei (for Chinese cuisine).
