This has long been a favorite place for authentic Indian food. Until our most recent visit, I just overlooked the quality of service. I paid more attention this time. Serve staff seemed aloof, not engaged, not wanting to be there, bordering on rude.

Great place for lunch. I can't resist when I'm in the area. Naan bread is the best. I'm a spice nut so everything is good. Weekends are great when they have their version of BBQ chicken Mmm.

The service was adequate, though not super friendly for my take-out order. The waiter forgot to include cutlery with my meal. The veggie patio was flavorful, plenty and appropriately priced, however, even though I LOVE spicey food, this dish I ordered medium yet is was...More

In spite of my better sense and being an eternal optimist, I keep seeking Indian restaurants in the USA hoping that 1 in 100 may yet surprise me. Well, this was not that 1. So, for all you gullible, ignorant Westerners who flock to these...More
