The papadam to start the meal were the highlight. We enjoyed them very much, and the server was pleasant. We shared with him that we had visited India last year, and loved Indian food. Our favorite food was that of his hometown in Pubjab. We ordered chicken tikka masala and eggplant bharata. We asked for each medium- spicy. When the... More

One of the best Indian restaurants in Rochester. Daily lunch buffets give you the opportunity to explore new dishes. Fresh baked breads and homemade desserts. Personal service email. And live music on the weekends. This is the real deal.

Family loves this place. Always happy with the Balti dishes. Mild spice best except for vindaloo which we get med. 2 orders of garlic naan a must. Eggplant dish good. Chicken with honey is girl's fave. Rice dishes not worth it even with the good yogurt sayce.

The chicken palak and several fish courses were all judged excellent. The chicken was all white meat and came in one-inch cubes. The fish servings were of a similar size and were... More

We like to go on Monday evening when a very good buffet is offered. Wide variety of vegetarian and non vegetarian offerings. Some spicy, some not - the staff will help guide you if you ask. Place is not large and can get very busy when doors open for dinner on Monday evening.
