The food is amazing. Portions are great. The owners are very friendly and give you the best feeling of home atmosphere. Amazing for me was every table was set up with fresh flowers table setting. Clean food and not too spicy. Cooked to perfection. Prices are amazing. Most likely you are to see a Hollywood celebrity eating in or taking... More

We decided to go here because a couple of weeks ago as we wandered around the farmers market they have here every Sunday the restaurant had a stall set up outside their front door selling lunches you could munch on as you meandered through the crowds. We paid $5 each for a yummy curry and onion pakoras and were sold.... More

Everything about this restaurant is Outstanding - well done Gangadin! Couldn't fault this restaurant for anything. The owner was so friendly and we enjoyed chatting to him all night (very interesting man). The food was delicious and not oily like so many Indian Restaurants these days. This restaurant is frequented by many celebrities, but sadly we didn't see any when... More

I have eaten there and had food delivered. The menu is quite vast, and covers all of the Indian flavors and dishes. I like that everything does not taste the same. Their meats are very tender. The restaurant owner is very friendly and welcoming.

This restaurant needs a new Tandoor chef and an updated menu! Very over cooked and tasteless tandoori food. Disappointing, as they were recommended by my hotel. They even demanded on taking away the hot sizzling plate for the tandoori, as they needed it for other customers! Incredible! It feels like they are living off of their history? I visit many...

Quaint place. Food, service and owner were delightful. We had one of our children with us - so they offered to make everything non-spicy. The lamb was sooooo tender. We will be back.

My husband, daughter and I had lunch here on December 30th and it was fantastic! A woman working in a nearby shop recommended it. The service was good and the food was amazing! Our daughter claims it's her favorite Indian restaurant now. The lunch specials were large and the prices were great.
