This was so unexpected. Definitely an Austonian hidden jewel, wihth great salads, Indian rice bowls and amazing wines. Very popular place with those "in the know". But on an access road off of the highway.

100% come to this laid-back place for the Indian Nachos and awesome happy hour. Bunches of beers, wine, and cider on tap for $4. Good outdoor seating too.

We went on a Monday night and saw many great singers/musicians. The food is Indian Fusion and offers some interesting selections. There is an extensive beer menu and many excellent beers on draft.
