Stopped at this hole-in-the-wall place before heading to the airport on a week-long vacation, ironically, it was better than any meal we got on vacation! Chicken 65, vegetable curry, & samosa chaat were great, but the naan especially was the best I've had!

The middle aged man always seems to have a rude face and his every move makes you think that you are not welcome. The lady however seems to be very friendly.

Dined here this evening solo and recommend it for curry lovers. This place is nothing flash and it's unlicensed, but its clean, warm, comfortable and the toilet was spotlessly clean. Good food and just the right level of spiciness. I would eat here again if...More

Laid back atmosphere, service a little on the slower side at night time and no buffet at 7:30PM. Had a typical chicken marsala with basmati rice and white flatbread. Ordered a 6 spice and sauce was just a little mild. The sauce was very good-...More

It was simple, we were looking for South Indian Dosas and we thought we had found them at the India Cafe. We came at lunch, so we were told it was only the lunch buffet and the kitchen was too busy to prepare them. Sadly...More
