An intimate appealing restaurant located in midtown on the east side. I'm always warmly received even if they don't know me all that well. Great menu choices from Northern Indian cuisine to Southern Indian cuisine. Everything is always fresh and tasty - and reasonably priced.

This place serves good Indian food, but is quite expensive if compared to quantity as well as service. The servers keep pushing to buy more items from the menu even if you do not want. Also, the restaurant is very small and cramped. I always...More
