This is our favorite downtown Indian restaurant. We love the veggie koorma and the amazing Tikka masala sauce. The wine list is reasonable and well chosen. The chef owner and his delightful wife have brought something wonderful to the neighborhood. Thanks!

We went as a family of six, including 2 young girls. The service was good and the food was very tasty. The only downer was a customer who came in, ordered some food to go, waited about 10~15 minutes for her food, then got pissy...More
