I've eaten a lot of Indian food in a lot of places, and this is one of my favorites! I live out of town about an hour away, and I'm not in Springfield all that often, but when I am, I come here to eat. Wide variety of menu. The dishes are all so good. Had a Korma and a... More

This is our favorite Indian restaurant anywhere in the US. We have eaten at many places around the country including Chicago, New York and Philadelphia and the taste and quality of the food prepared at this establishment continues to impress us. We just came back from India and still find that what is being prepared is quite authentic.we love their... More

I've only ever been here for the lunch buffet and occasionally for takeout, and it's almost always good. For a little while the quality dipped but that was due to a change in management, and now it's back to being delicious again! We always arrive a little after 11 when they open. The lunch buffet is well-stocked with a variety... More

We enjoyed our dinner experience so much that we went back for the lunch buffet in the same week. Unfortunately we did not enjoy the lunch buffet as much, and it was quite expensive at $25.00. Our dinner was $65.00 with tip, but we ordered an appetizer, shrimp entree, and a variety/sampler dinner entree, which was huge. The food was... More

We went for a birthday dinner. The food was wonderful! Portions were large and seemed designed for sharing. The owners are from South India, but there are dishes characteristic of several different Indian cuisines to choose from. Both the members of our family who like meat and the vegan members of our family really enjoyed the food.

Good food ,except that briyani is not up to the mark. However, good place to have complete Indian food. Surprised to see more Americans than Indian's.

This Indian restaurant was the only choice in town for quite a while. When Ithe original owners sold, the place bacame rather run of the mill. After yet another change of ownership there is a new menu with an impressive array of new choices often some rarely seen on the traditional Indian menus. Many interesting menu choices including vegitarian offerings.... More

Used to have this restaurant in our family rotation!! We had cravings for Indian food last night and ordered our usual dishes. Everyone at the table agreed the flavor just was lacking. Used to be such wonderfully spiced food. We were disappointed and are hoping things change. We will try it again to see if they've raised their standards. If... More
