This place is small, maybe 6 tables inside plus a few more outside, and a lot of their business is takeout. Their menu is extensive and it enlarges continually, giving you loads of ways to vary or customize your selections. Everything is always super tasty. Patronized by Indians as well as non-, thus lending a note of confidence about the... More

Reasonably priced, rice could be a lot better. Current mood after getting chicken tikki masala and samosas: sulky. Chicken tikki masala - okay Vegetarian samosa - good Lentil soup - good

Indian, whatever way you like it. Consistently delicious food, with a menu that gets larger and larger over time. Perfect for nights when you don't want to cook but you want to eat something nutritious and delicious. If you live near here, don't miss this gem.

This casual, in and out Indian restaurant has some indoor seating and outdoor seating. Stay or take it to go. Plenty of parking. It is located in a shopping village, perfect for a bite to eat or picking up an order of takeout if you're running nearby errands. The pricing is very reasonable and the food is delicious. They serve... More

Love this little spot. Indian food is reliably excellent, either for eating there at one of their half dozen tables, or for taking home. You can order in advance and pick up, and this spot is a great resource for those too tired or lazy to cook.

It's a small restaurant, but it delivers big on the taste and quality of the food. The inside is nothing fancy its low keyed and I found it very relaxing to get away from shopping. I have eaten there many times and I can say their consistent with the taste of the food. I ordered the Lamb vindaloo and it... More

Delicious Indian food. No luncheon buffet, but a wide selection of reasonably priced dishes. Dosas! Be sure to try the gulab halva for dessert! Poor atmosphere, close to mall.

It's fast Indian food, great quality, good service, inpensive. It's a small, informal restaurant, no ambiance to speak of. Keep that in mind. If that's what you're looking for, this will satisfy you.

Located in the Target store shopping area, this Indian restaurant is very good. Not a lot of seating but go there and try the great food. Really is some of the best Indian food in this area for sure. So good we went back two days during our three day stay in the area.

Tucked away in a shopping center, KC's Tandoor puts out very high quality Indian food at great prices, averaging between $8-12 per person. The food is fresh, and menu is excellent, and you won't be disappointed with the excellent seasonings. You just have to live with the fact that its next to a McDonald's and the view is a parking...
