I found this restaurant by accident and glad I did! I ordered the tikka masala and it was very, very good. The portion size was enough for three meals for myself! Wow! Oh, and the staff is wonderful, too. 😊

Food is average for the area, and is a bit more expensive compared to Haandi. However, it needs to be cleaned up, dusted, washed, bleached, mopped, etc etc. Its like going into a run down restaurant in a Third World country, but you are on...More

Combination platter is the best deal in the city. Even enough for two. Free salad and rice pudding. Sadly the upper level was remodeled with the worse decor choices. The booths were removed, the carpet was changed to tile, the lights were replaced to bright...More

It was a spontaneous visit, the smell from the restaurant was awesome, we were tempted as soon as we got close to the outlet. The guys offered us tasters, which confirmed the purchase. Great guys, great food, one of the best currys ever!

OK, we didn't expect anything exceptional here - it's a cheap Indian restaurant that has been around for a long time. However, the chana masala was boring and the lamb saagwala was sort of disgusting (slimy and had a weird aftertaste). The service was minimal....More
