We really enjoy good Indian food but have not had this experience for a long while. My family is big fan of Indian food and this time Trip Advisor saved us from any disappointment when we checked the reviews of this restaurant at Emmet St. Great atmosphere, friendly service and most importantly was the food - which was the best...

This food was obviously made by a professionally trained chef. The best Indian food I have ever had. The atmosphere was very nice and the service was very good. I had some questions as I am also gluten free and a head waiter (I assume) came over to answer any questions and made suggestions regarding that and any spice issues.... More

They have a great lunch buffet, as long as you get there by 1:30 (it closes at 2:30). Their dinner menu is great. My daughter and I shared a "Dinner for Two" which came with a delicious cauliflower appetizer and a huge amount of food for the entree's, including a vegetarian dish. It also included desert. All for $40! Service... More

We mostly enjoyed our visit to Milan. The service was very good, efficient and helpful, and the food for the most part was quite good. Our table really enjoyed the Rogan Josh with lamb (a curry style sauce), and Pasanda with goat ( which reminded me of what a korma is in other restaurants). The meat was tender and delicious,...

My favorite Indian food in town. Love their naan, raita, and chicken tikka masala. Love it for dining in and take-out. Scrumptious. I will keep this short and sweet: their food is phenomenal.

Lunch buffet great (lots of veggie choices), dinner quieter and also terrific food from the menu. The sauces grab you and they know how to kick it up a notch. Consistent service and quality make this a local favorite.

I have been here many, many times and have never had a bad meal. It is our usual go-to spot when we want take out food. The menu is varied and spice and heat range widely from near bland to eye-watering. The lamb dishes are always good as are the seafood based items. It can get a bit crowded and... More

Wife and I stopped in before a basketball game, and all those big Indian flavors did not disappoint.

We ordered a dinner for two since we were not very ambitious about selecting individual items and not familiar with the restaurant. The offerings were very good and also generous. We took the extra home and had another good meal of it. Service was very polite and gracious and attentive. My one advice would be to throw away soiled menus... More
