Food and service: Awry, confused, lagging, mediocre, disappointing, sluggish, lacking. Only thing that brought me in the door was a groupon. It was a Monday. Thank god I had it, otherwise menu is highly overpriced. Nice area, but check out all your dining options. Unless your hell bent on Indian food- you can do better.

Disclosure: I am an Indian born North Indian who likes mild spicy food. I had the lunch buffet here in April 2017. Food was good. It's mild spicy food, so you could taste the food and not just the chilies. The recipes for the dishes included in the buffet were traditional north/ western Indian food (chicken tikka, butter chicken, vegetable... More

We heard good things about the lunch buffet but they don't have the buffet anymore, this is probably why the place was empty. The food was just ok. I've had much better chicken tikka masala and the bread wasn't even Naan, it was Grilled Pita Bread. Won't come back, will try some of the other places.

We really enjoyed our food; The chicken tikka was spiced nicely, a little on the sweet side. They were a little skimpy on the rice. The naan bread was very good. For the atmosphere, I would have expected much more reasonable pricing. Over $40 for two entrees at lunch with only water is not really a good value to me.

This was my favorite Indian restaurant. I went often for the Sunday lunch buffet and occasionally for the weekday buffet. I went Wednesday - no buffet. They only have buffets on Friday & Sunday now, so I had to visit a competitor.

This was my first time coming here with my friend. We came here because we heard they had some vegan options which is always good for my friend. The mango smoothie that I had here is probably the best I've ever tasted and I'm not much a fan of mango. The chicken dish with the rice had was outstanding! And... More

I had a lamb dish that was delicious. Advertised as hot but not too hot. Just the right amount of spice! The place was hopping on a Friday night yet I didnt wait long to be served. The staff is friendly and attentive. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Tables and Seats are dirty, rice all over also it was not busy with 3 tables only occupied. We needed to point out to the staff member seating us if he kindly would wipe the chairs so we... More

I have eaten here for years and have always enjoyed the food. Last night was no exception, however the prices have really gone up! My Lamb Rogan Josh was $18 and 2 glasses of house Chardonnay came to over $36!! Not sure I'll go back because of the cost, but the food is delicious.
