I recently had dinner here with my girlfriend. It was our first time eating here. We had a great meal for two, for only $35 I will definitely return! Centrally located downtown on Congress Street, just around the corner from the Westin Hotel, this place doesn't really stand out as you walk by. A small restaurant with a small window... More

Dropped in for a late lunch...and enjoyed the meal. Had the Saag Daal, Chicken Korma, Raita and Garlic Naan. Just the right amount of food for two. Service was very good. Just the right amount of attention. Would return if visiting Portland again.

I've been here many times. I came in during First Friday Art Walk, and while the restaurant was steady and busier than normal, it was not full by any stretch. The owner didn't seem concerned that this might be a busier night. There were exactly two servers who managed the one large-roomed business, and I think one of them was... More

Throughout my summer working as a counselor in Maine, I have been craving Indian food. On my last day off of the summer, I finally got a chance to go to Portland for some Indian food. To start the meal, my friends and I shared an aloo naan and a paneer naan. While the Aloo naan was very flavorful and... More

We were welcomed in and there were several other tables seated. The server was polite and attentive, took our orders and all was well. As soon as the food came, they put out the closed sign, turned off the lovely music and let their kids enter into the dining area with their electronic gizmos which were loud and distracting. So............ More

Arrived at 2:30pm on a Saturday afternoon. After being seated, the server told us that they were closing at 3:00pm. Food came out very quickly, but was microwaved so hot that it was difficult to eat. As we were eating, the server brought us our bill and stood around for us to give her our credit card. Upon signing the... More

Good food, nice atmosphere and great service. Fairly typical for equivalent places in other cities. I'd eat there again

Soups served piping hot, only $2.00 to add to any menu order and they're quite decent-sized servings! Channa masala and Korma (potatoes, tofu, veggies) both very savory and spiced to our request--though, if you are a hard-core heat-lover, their "hot" isn't at all volcanic--ask for extra-hot. Staff was attentive. Prices for Congress St. in Portland--VERY good! Wheelchair access in from... More

I have to be honest, I somewhat forgot this place was here. Living on the other end of town and working in the Old Port area, I always seem to go to the other two Indian restaurants. Perhaps I'm not alone, as it was pretty quiet on a Friday night, which is a total shame as this place is fantastic.... More
