Highlight was the Kofta in a spicy sauce. Good nans. Paneer tikka was surprisingly a bit burnt and insufficiently spiced/marinated. Combined with the ambience and service, this is a a good option for friends and family getting together for a meal.

Visited with 4 vegans. All repeat customers. I enjoyed the lamb curry. Lots of rice to go with the mains.

Excellent service— delicious lunch buffet. Garlic naan was right off tandoori. Chicken tiki Marsala and vegetable curry were my favorites. The cold chickpea salad was wonderful, as were the spicy dipping sauces.

What elegant atmosphere and delicious food. The spice level was just as described so we really enjoyed the flavors. Adult beverages were available which was a great addition.

Food was very good. I had chicken butter curry and loved it. Service was very attentive, but we felt a little rushed. Prices were decent. Location and outdoor seating was very nice as well. Would return.

I was tired after flying in from Houston, and once unpacked, registered for conference, I realized I was starving. Wandering around I came upon this little place and becuase I was beyond hungry and entering the hangry stage, I figured the advertised buffet was my...More
