The food and service were amazing. You get a ton of food and it's all really savory. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.

We went for a lunch (buffet) as well as dinner on separate occasions. Dinner was of reasonable quality - poori, wheat bread and two vegetables; but, the buffet lunch was lacking in spices in all items and the vegetable fritters carried too much reused oil...More

Have travelled to this area extensively for work over the last few years. Coming from the NYC area it was great to see a more diverse selection of cuisine emerging in the area. Chicken Korma and Saag Paneer are my two faves.

If you choose one of the "brand" name establishments that surround this hidden gem you are missing the boat. The white tablecloth decor was special. The food was excellent. Light textured sauces and just the right spice when choosing medium. The naan was perfect, rolled...More
