Neighborhood is rough folks, not pretty. I arrived at about 330 pm to an empty restaurant less 3 people. The waiter recommended the Chicken Tika, so I took the recommendation also with garlic naan and eventually rice. The entrees do not include rice, which is...More

Came here on the recommendation of a friend who told me the food was amazing but be prepared for ample H&H (homeless and hookers). I encountered neither. Food was amazing and they even brought me out masala for free as I clearly had not bought...More

The restaurant is situated in a very bad neighborhood. Scary walk to the restaurant. Negative stars for cleanliness and customer service. Saw the pots/pans and the cook's apron. Dirty! But surprisingly, the food was really good. I would recommend doing take out and ignoring the...More

The Best Kebabs I ever had. The garlic Naan was also well prepared and so was mutton curry. Abundant quantity of tea is available.

This place has remained consistently top-notch. They use a real tandoor for their bread (naan) and meat, like chicken. Not a lot of places do this anymore, which is unfortunate, because a tandoor makes everything taste delicious. You can't go wrong with ordering -- from...More

This was a fantastic restaurant. The daal masala, the saag, and the haleem were incredible! I am much more impressed with the flavors of food rather than the ambiance and this place was a wonderful treat. It is a busy place and rather small but...More
