The service was fast and friendly! The menu was easy to understand. The staff was very helpful to us "first-timers." The atmosphere was pleasant and cozy. I already want to go back and sample other items from the menu!

Nicely decorated and cozy restaurant. Very good food with clearly high quality and fresh ingredients. Combination plates provide a diverse sampling and almost enough food for two people. Service was very good. Taj Mahal and Kingfisher beers available.

Traveling I-70 between Hagarstown, Md. and Baltimore is a real snooze fest dotted with the typical chain crap. If you can hang on until the Frederick area, you will find many hidden gems. This place is one of them. We have eaten here several times,...More
