I went there once and faced a terrible experience. I was served old rice. The plates they provided had fishy smell, not washed properly. The taste of the food was so so. But their behavior was not proper. Altogether that was a horrible experience.

Good Indian food, enough for a regular dinner. Nice service. Place in a old, dark and excessive red decor.

It is probably a bit unfair to judge a restaurant from one visit but I found the food a bit undistinguished and bland; the dishes come with rice, too much for one person really. The menu is long, and I perhaps chose the wrong things. Service though was brusque, and the main course was served without warm plates and well... More

We got takeout after a long, tiring day, and it didn't disappoint. The service was prompt and the prices were reasonable. We enjoy different kinds of food, so this really hit the spot. Portions are large enough that lunch was covered for another day! True Indian food that tastes great!

Really nice indian food. The good thing about them is their buffet which provides lot of options and is of reasonable cost. The food quality is not that always great but it is never gone bad. Interior and seating is really good. Only negative point is no parking, you have to look for street parking or some garage in the... More

You know the food will be great as soon as you walk in and smell it, plus see the place full of Indian people! Were not disappointed. Everything was marvelously yummy! We always over order because we love Indian food and want leftovers, so we had the veggie sampler appetizer tray, mango chutney, chicken saag, lamb tikka masala, and multiple... More

Stopped in for a late dinner carryout to our hotel across the street. Service was quick and friendly. Food was excellent; I especially enjoyed the spring rolls! Back home in Illinois, I wish I had some right now. Yum!
