I've never been to one of these all you can eat thali places before - but I'll definitely be back! The food was super tasty and authentic (my friend I dined with is Indian and guided me through the meal!). Great experience and adventure.

My first experience of a thali restaurant and I loved it. Staff explain everything, lots of vegan/vege/spice level options and the food keeps on coming and coming and .....! Food is fresh and flavoursome with some hot surprises even for those used to chilli heat. Breads and pickles are a joy. Give this place a try, you will not be... More

This was an awesome experience. Everyone was friendly and the food was really good, but be warned: it's authentic and extremely spicy. I asked for a milder version and they graciously brought me the same dishes but with less kick. I recommend it if you can handle the spice.

Food may be too spicy for some people. It was delicious and the service was outstanding. I am surprised this restaurant is not located in a more fancy place but that's fine because it's already on the expensive side (around 21 with taxes for 1 person) I couldn't finish all the food and I did not have any seconds.

When we asked where to find a Starbucks or other place for wifi, we were told to please use their restaurants wifi, and to remain at our table as long... More

No menu, just experience food specially prepared by the in house chef. Tried the dholka and samosa for starters, these are good food. The rest of the meal with rice and bread served were tasty.

We have been eating here for at least a year. Place NEVER disappoints. Fantastic flavor, service and atmosphere. We actually make it a point to visit now that we live in another city. Have yet to find a more authentic flavor anywhere. Highly recommended for any occasion. We just had lunch here, and we're already planning our next visit.

Have been here many times and happy to keep returning as well as recommending to anyone looking for a true Indian taste. The restaurant has a very authentic Gujarati thali feel, similar to what one would get in India. The food is great tasting, even allowing for a "mild" variation for those wanting to avoid too much spice. Every dish... More
