Have eaten here on multiple occasions over the last year and have noticed a deterioration of food and service. Place is almost empty in the evenings. Meat portions are quite small and the sauces not as good as when we first started going. Service is not good at all as the only waiter spent considerable time taking phone orders. In... More

We visited on a Thursday night so OK would not expect it to be busy but there was just us and one other table in this huge restaurant. There was only one waiter (fair enough - it was quiet). But he stopped in the middle of taking our order to answer the phone before returning to us. The TV was... More

Our meals here were very fresh and flavorful. It was a little more expensive than we expected for Indian Food. And it did feel odd to be eating almost alone in this fairly large restaurant. Our service was very good -- not at all like some of the comments about "rude waiters" that appear in other TripAdvisor reviews.

We rarely go out for Indian food, but I think that will change after our dinner here. We had fantastic service, the food was really good, and the prices are good for what you get. I had the lamb chops, my husband got "butter" chicken. They let us say what number spiciness we would like and we both took a... More

Fully enjoy this restaurant and have been their many times. Very good food but most important is they allow you to dial the heat intensity from 1-10 so you can get the right amount of heat

Excellent food in a very classy setting....very accommodating service. We always really enjoy our meals . Tonight they made us something "off menu" ....no problem and very well made. The food is a cut above their competitors. The vegetable dishes are outstanding.

This restaurant is a treasure. My husband and I meet friends here once a month. The dishes are seasoned to perfection. Be certain to try their chutneys and ask for the mango chutney they have brought in from India. The restaurant is on the expensive side but worth it. If you don't know what to order, ask one of the... More

We know Indian food from India. I am aware that this is Scottsdale, Arizona, not India. At the moment we have nice weather in this area, and we would like to sit outside, on the terrace, if possible. Unfortunately it was not possible because the door was broken - and it seems that nobody cares about it. Everyone is happy... More
