I LOVE Indian food. We recently moved, so for my birthday we decided to try out this local place. Never again. We got delivery, which was on time. That is where my compliments end. The food was cold, lacked the amazing flavor that is typically associated with Indian food, and wasn't spicy in the slightest. Our goat dish had very... More

I got the buffet lunch and while the selections were somewhat limited, all of them were very good and well spiced. the service is very friendly and this is the third time I've seen the owners' kids eating their lunch here, as well. Indian beer is available. Their... More

The food is always fresh and delicious. The owners are gracious, friendly and very good cooks! We have been going to this restaurant for years. It is our favorite Indian restaurant.

Been here twice, once for takeout and the other eat in. The food is very good. Great Shrimp Korma, chicken tiki masala, spinach paneer, naan....piping hot food. The server who I believe owns the restaurant was pleasant and accommodating. It's a hole in the wall restaurant which is in need of renovation. The interior is dark and outdated. The outside...

My friend and I ate here. I liked the theme of the restaurant. It was quiet with Indian music and art. The woman was VERY nice and helpful. We each ordered the curry chicken which was good (my first time trying this) I ordered it spicy and it was spicy. We also got the mango lassi which was great, thick... More

The food and service was quite good..However for the buffet option, they should add some more items in the veg section.. The samosa's were really amazing and never expected such authentic samosas in Boston..!! Good place for a lunch / dinner.!

Pros - So tasty! - Fresh food - Good selection of standard Indian fare Cons - A bit pricey and slow on delivery You won't have leftovers with this place! You'll just gobble it all down and wish there was more.

We went here for dinner with some friends for the first time. We were very satisfied by everything this restaurant had to offer. The atmosphere was festive and clean, the food was authentic (and we've been to India so we can tell!) with good portions, and the waiter was very kind to us. One of the people in our party... More
