I went for the lunch buffet and also ordered a take-out. The buffet selection was so-so. Only decent item was the Butter Chicken. So I ordered the butter chicken and navrattan korma to go. Both of those were deliciously tasty! Not impressed with the shrimp curry, baingan bharta, aloo matter, or the palak paneer.

The food is good and the service was faster tonight than it has been on past occasions. Nothing especially outstanding. The bread was very good. The older male server seemed a little annoyed that we were bothering him by eating in his restaurant. But the test of the servers were friendly and relatively attentive. This is our closest Indian restaurant... More

Lunched there recently. Cuisine is authentic; kudos to the chef who has kept the reputation going. Staff? 85% on follow-through; 25% on making us feel welcome and hoping we'll come back. If you're a regular, perhaps "the treatment" is warmer, but if you're traveling and like a friendly atmosphere, there are other options nearby (unless you're just needing an Indian... More

This was my first experience with Indian food, but I'm forever ruined now, because I'll never find a place this good ever again. My boyfriend found this place via the interwebs. The food and service were incredible!! Everything was flavorful but not overpowering. The place did not reek of curry and the food was not overly spicy (which I was... More

Were visiting my son and family down in SC and wanted to get some Indian food. My son took us to this restaurant. They warned us that the service was poor and it didn't look that great but the food was excellent. And they were right. The place looks like it was an old Pizza Hut building. Walking inside the...

The restaurant and the owners are from India and the food was good. Not outstanding but a good place to go if you are desperate for a curry while travelling.

My husband and I have been coming here for at least 7 years, on a semi-regular basis. It is our all time favorite Indian restaurant in SC. Perfectly prepared dishes every time, plus friendly and efficient service. Definitely a must try if you enjoy Indian food!!
