Excellent Indian food, love it that they had Indian and American menus in one restaurant, perfect for families with young children. Great quality food, very highly recommended.

The food was awful and ridiculously expensive. I do not know what they charge for a glass of wine but by the looks of my bill that too is overpriced.

I couldn't decide what to order. The butter chicken is delicious. There is a lot to choose from. And the Garlic Naan is very good.

Boyfriend and I went here on his birthday because of all the great reviews. Maybe it's just that the other Indian food I have had here is that good but I didn't think there was anything special about this place. It's also a little overpriced....More

This restaurant draws customers from the Stamford area, but is attached to the hotel who provides about 50% of their income. Full bar, 2 TV,s in a separate area. Can accomodate larger groups, and private dining. Typical American fare, but a very large Indian menu...More

Great Indian Restaurant. Tamarind Sauce is to die for. They have two menus: American and Indian. Try Indian. The food is great. They need to work on the service a little. But overall experience was very pleasant.
