We've gone to this restaurant for eons, and it never disappoints. Our guests are always eager to try new foods and experience authentic northern Indian dishes. We've never been disappointed at this restaurant, unlike others in the San Diego region.

Very nice place in a strip mall in Little India. Good variety of Indian dishes from various regions, from mild to spicy. Selection of Indian beers, small wine list. Everything we had was very good. The biryani dishes were excellent. Good value for the money.

This is a pretty decent location with good options for both regular menu and buffet. We opted for the buffet and it was standard buffet with options for both veggies and non-veggies. The Navratan Kurma was really good.

We loved the breads - naan and keema naan were standouts. But the two chicken dishes we tried had very dry, flavorless chicken. The lamb was better, but still not great. The best main course was a vegetarian entree the waiter suggested as a replacement...More
