We stopped here in a food tour. Tried the naan bread cooked perfectly, chicken masala and mint chicken. All tasted delicious and not spicy. The masala sauce served as dipper too!

Lots of choices on the buffet, including a couple of unusual options. The goat was excellent, as was the chicken palak. The service was attentive, and we appreciated our window seat, with anise view of the strollers up and down Franklin St.

I love this place! I have been here many times and the food is excellent. I have yet to try the mimosa brunch but I am sure that is excellent as well. If you like Indian food I definitely recommend this place.
