The menu has a good selection at good prices. The food quailty is good, although sometimes a chicken dish can be a bit dry. The service is excellent. Live music during dinner is nice but a bit loud at times.

Was on business day today and ran late so thought I'd give this spot a try. Heard good things about it from others but never had the chance to eat there mostly because wife is not a fan of this cuisine. However I was not to be tied down on my visit night! Pleasant and clean. Tile floors (not carpet)... More

We had dinner there this past Sunday night. It was awful. No flavor at all. higher prices than most Indian restaurants, which would have been ok if the food wasn't almost entirely tasteless.
