Today was the first time I've been here in a year. On the positive side the staff were super friendly, but our waiter was a bit too attentive visiting our table at least every 5 minutes or so. What really disappointed me was the blandness of the food. What has happened to the flavor? Even the peshwari naan, previously one... More

From the outside you wouldn't know it, but this is the top restaurant for (close to) authentic Indian cuisine. Do not be discouraged by the outside because it becomes a semi palace once your open the door. Friendly service and more than enough food. Quite tasty.

Great indian, with some delicate touches. The naan may be the best in town. Superb and crisp samosas. Friendly and attentive service. Restaurant has excellent bar menu.

I've been to Lemon about 10 times. Several months ago I would have rated it 3 to 4 stars, but with the new chef and excellent staff I'll give it five now. We've dined there twice in as many weeks and it is superb. If you like curry, this is divine. Try the lamb Rogan Josh or the shrimp curry... More

I had dinner with coworkers, and we enjoyed the Indian beer and food. We ordered Tandoori sampler, Hara Bhara Kabab and Gobi Lasooni as appetizers and they were all hits with our group. Service was efficient and friendly. Try Haywards 5000 for a strong Indian beer. I had Palak Paneer and garlic Naan, which were excellent! This is a spacious... More

Pros: It is in the middle of the city, parking was not bad. Goan style curry was not bad. Cons: There is no buffet. The rice kheer was poor quality with rice grains separated from milk, not thick and creamy. The rice and naan were not hot, rice was so cold and looked like it was cooked yesterday. The bathrooms...

Phenomenal. Absolutely fantastic. Great service, awesome cuisine. Looks like a hole in the wall from outside and doesn't look like a great neighborhood (I'm told it's a college area... Looks industrial??). But fancy and tasteful inside and food was outstanding. The naan with the cherry filling and jelly topping was heavenly. I also got a chicken appetizer that was to... More

It's so pretty in here. The food is terrific and excellent service. They also have good happy hour specials. I'm glad we found this place. Shrimp curry was delicious.
