We were visiting DC, and we really enjoyed our meal. The naan, curries and tikkas were all amazing. Our server was very friendly as well. The atmosphere had a nice ambiance. We'd definitely patronize this restaurant again. I've already provided recommendations to others.

Excellent food. We tried the vegetable samosa, lentil soup, garlic nan, tandoori chicken breast, and marinated chick peas. All was really great quality. Very generous portions as well. We will come back.
