Never get tired of comiing . The owner treats you like an old friend, and the food is top notch. If the menu is too complext for you, just ask for help, and they'll guide you in the right direction.

Amazing food. Warm and Personable owners. Highly recommend the Chicken Tak-a-tak and Lamb Madras! Ask them for recommendations based on your heat tolerance ;)

I don't claim to be an expert on Indian food, but this place is good. The food is a little on the greasy side but it's certainly good. The interior could use a reno but it's still nice enough for a good meal.

It gets no better - brewpub with edgy offerings and absolutely first class northern Indian food. I like to sample beers at the bar while my takeout is prepped. I've had Indian cuisine at hundreds of places around the world and this one is spot...More
