We got take out. Excellent service and I think dine in would be preferable. Rice was not included in the tikka masala but prices were still good. Recipe was different than our favorite at home but still nothing went to waste!

Over 25 years I have spent 2 years in India where I have experienced some very excellent Indian food. When I have returned, I am almost always disappointed by the quality of food here in the States. The main reason is that here in America,...More

I really like this Place. Good selection of dishes, Indian beers and pleasant wait staff. Love their buttered Nan, chicken tikki, and their chicken tandoor.

I can't believe this place exists so close to home! Palak paneer and garlic naan are comfort food when you want something different and tasteful. I went for pick up and noticed they have buffet, will definitively come back soon!

The buffet for lunch is great because it gives you an opportunity to try new things which you may not be daring enough to order the whole entree. Dinner and then a walk on the beach which is a short stroll away.
