I am an indian food lover and this place did not disappoint. The food was quite tasty and the portion sizes were unusually generous for Indian restaurants. This place is family run with hard working high school and college children diligently serving and helping out. The appetizers are complimentary which is a nice touch and the food is not unreasonably... More

We ate here and explained that we are vegan which they said was not an issue. Starter was vegetable samosa which was good. Poppadoms were good but accompanying dips did not look overly fresh. The main courses Channa Masala and Vegetarian curry were at best mediocre. I like to eat food in restaurants that I can't cook at home but... More

I guess I am spoilt coming from London and having visited India many times. I thought the food was nothing special. They did make me a Persharwi Naan bread which was not on the menu. The chicken jalfrezi was a dry dish whereas I am used to it having a lot more sauce.

Good ambiance, Great service , Tasty and traditional Indian food, I tasted Garlic Naan,samosas, very tasty, affordable price. They give discount coupons occasionally. We tasted vegetarian and my friend tasted non vegetarian both tasted awesome. It is worth visiting this restaurant If you have a craving for Indian food.

My husband wanted lamb on the bone and the waiter said that was ok but the meal arrived for him and not on the bone.... I had a chicken curry which was quite tasty. The lamb was supposed to be medium but was not medium but rather mild, my curry was medium. The waiter should have been able to suggest... More

Had dinner here the other night. Ordered two seafood and one vegetarian dish. All came out very hot and tasty. Maybe the lunch buffet is different, but the dinner menu servings were well prepared with the appropriate level of seasonings. Waiter was very professional. He packaged up our leftovers and provided us a full serving of rice (only had about... More

This was one of the worst Indian Restaurants we have eaten at. All of the dishes in the buffet were tasteless. When I asked the waiter about it, he said no one would come if they spiced up the food (we were the only ones there). No hint of the usual Indian spices, like cardamom, etc anywhere. The chicken curry... More

We love Indian food but were not impressed with this place. The food had weird flavors (chicken tikka masala is a fairly standard but this one tasted weirdly smokey and kind of BBQ sauce flavoured). The owner was constantly on the phone and the decor is horribly outdated.
