We ate lunch here, and the food was very good. Solid curries and naan. Service was courteous and attentive. We also had a Mango Lassi that was quite tasty.

Stopped by for lunch. Had seen other reviews and was pleasantly surprised. Had the Gao Shrimp Curry and was immediately happy. The curry was fantastic, the garlic naan really hit the spot. Too bad we were on vacation, because I would eat there very often.
