Lalls Indian Food is Freshly Cooked to order and second to none on Both sides of the Island. We visit twice a year. Lall loves to talk about the track and the Derbys. Great place to watch a game

Lal has always taken care of us! Food is good and the beer is great! We have been eating there for years! Everything on the menu is good, especially the tandoori chicken! Casual enough to wear your stretch pants. Enjoy!

This restaurant is cash only but what a great tasting Indian food indulgence! We could not taste their famous Chicken Chow (Biriyani in a bread..) but both the dishes we ordered were super delicious. Its waterfront location on the bay is added bonus.

We love going to Lal's. The service is relaxed and good. The food is excellent and Lal ( the owner) is always there to assist those of us who are not so familiar with Indian food. His suggestions are always very tasty.
