Pardon my review title, but i'm fairly certain this town is where our credit card info was stolen when we stopped for gas. So depressed of an area. Regardless, glad we stopped at this place for lunch and they had Gluten free options available.

They also offer various pizzas in additional to the Indian food. A little pricey, so not an every day kind of place, but very food food and very prompt service.

Service was ok and food was great, no complaints other than it's a little pricey so maybe not for a big family regular stop.

Excellent excellent service, awesome selection of food. Onion bajis are the best! The curries were fantastic. I eat Indian perhaps 3 times a week being vegetarian and this one I highly recommended. My partner eats meat and he love doing the meat versions.

HI Dear reviewer, Thanks for your review. I think you have reviewed the wrong restaurant as we do not have Bombay pizza on our menu. Our customers are very important to us. We do respect all our customers and look after them in respectful manner....More

Was always hit and miss with meat quality in curries, but has lately gone really downhill with poor quality meat every time and much smaller portion sizes for the $16-17 price tag. Too expensive for the average food it has become.
