Don't be thrown off by the location. (In a shopping plaza) This place is very nice inside. The food and the service were good and we were satisfied. I would eat here again.

Indian has become the comfort food for me and my spouse. He likes things spicier than I do, but he's usually willing to go down a notch for me when we share. We got 2 vegetable dishes and no naan, so our review is limited...More
