I highly recommend their brunch at lunch during the week or the weekends! Great way to try a bunch of different foods you may not be familiar with and a decent price to boot!

The food is very good, but the service is so bad I don't know if I can go back. We were the 4th table on a Thurs. evening. Had to wait to be seated, should have been my first clue in a near empty restaurant. Waited forever to put in our order and again to get our food. After waiting... More

As an airline pilot flying international, I have eaten in hundreds of cities across the globe. Without a doubt, this restaurant has the best quality and variety of dishes you will find anywhere. The owner/chef, BJ Bisht, constantly comes up with dishes that we've never tasted before and we have being eating here for 16 years. The flavors are often... More

The chicken tikka Masala is amazing. Service is often slow, but enjoy! I've not been adventurous enough to try other things - the chicken tikka Masala is great!!

I travel all over and dine in many restaurants of all levels. I usually don't write reviews though I should, but in this case I feel I need to. The service at this restaurant is terrible and it is not because they were busy. We came in to the restaurant and were ignored. We wait long to be seated. After... More

First time having Indian food. Everything was fantastic. Well seasoned hot out of the kitchen. I was able to see the cook handling the food and making it from scratch from where I sat, a big plus knowing it's made to order. My only complaint is the server who I suspect is the owner. No help with the menu, I'm... More

This is an authentic Indian restaurant featuring authentic dishes. The atmosphere is quiet and peaceful. Chai tea is plentiful. They have an all you can eat lunch buffet daily featuring dishes like Aloo Gobi and Tikka Masala. Favorites of my family are the Aloo Tikki, Cucumber Raita, the various curries, and of course plenty of fresh Naan bread! Most people... More

This used to be my favorite restaurant. It has steadily going downhill for the past 6 years. Once in awhile you can get good service but for the most part the staff goes out of their way to ignore you. I have had to refill my water glass in the bathroom. The bathroom by the way lacks paper towel and... More

The ambiance was upscale but the prices were surprisingly moderate. I ordered the Lamb Rodan Josh and it was served with a warming chafing dish and was very well spiced. I've never seen that in any reastaurant. My wife ordered the Chicken Tikka (a tandoori) and it was served sizzeling hot. We also orderd a side of tasty basmati rice... More
