This place was pioneering. Still great taste. But they're skimming on quantity. Have been for the last couple of years - around the time they got the new owner's relative managing it. I was even told by the other waiters that he orders them to reduce the amount of food and inflate the volume artificially with lots of bones.

I used to have a hearty meal with one item. Since this guy took over, I'm left hungry even after eating two dishes by myself!

It used to be a bustling restaurant not very long ago. New management took over, raised the prices exorbitantly, for the same if not lower quality food. Further the quantity of curries has decreased. People obviously noticed this and have pretty much stopped coming. Couple of years ago, on a typical Friday night it used to be teeming with people. Recently on a Friday there were only a handful of people at prime dinner time. The toilet was unclean and dirty to say the least.

Workers there doesn't even know about the gift vouchers. They didn't bothered to even check with the owner.

This is part of the Shalimar chain. Though the Food is good but this place is very crowded and not so clean. The One in Freemont is much better.

Service was a bit more than what you might expect in a place where you stand in line to order. When they delivered the food -- which came out in stages (not typical of Indian places during lunch in Silicon Valley) -- the waiters seemed to hover a bit too much -- like a gringo hadn't seen these dishes before. Would I go back? Yes, the food was good. Strange that we were the only people in the place that didn't work there
