We went for dinner here. It's my first Indian restaurant after arriving in USA. It's definitely got but not worth the price. I would suggest to go for vegetarian food rather than non-veg thali(Chicken, goat are common here).

Very friendly owners and the food is good. Price is reasonable and the deserts were tasty. Even though our group was noisy and kids were running here and there, the owners did not mind. This was a godsend.

This is without a doubt, my favorite place to eat at. I've never been disappointed with a visit here. I truly can't give it enough praise. I visited London recently, which claims to have the best Tikka Masala in the world, but it didn't hold...More
