Had family event in banquet are. Great food and service. Bolani. Shola kabobs all excellent and very reasonable. Have eaten here for years. Only small issue owners need to turn air condition on more when hot.

We ordered Potato Bolani or Alu Parathas as we call it, excellent taste. Also we ordered chicken and mutton kebabs served with salad and some rice, good service and home style cooking. Saw the owner's lady's sitting among the guest tables enjoying their tea and knitting, rather unusual, will order again on next trip to Ca.

Went for dinner after receiving a card for lunch in the mail. Bags of lamb were incredible. Free salad was a meal itself. Great value.
