Food very disappointing. Don't have the Chicken and spinach - all spinach and little chicken. Also had a lamb dish that was all sauce and no lamb. Service not too good either. Food delivered but no one came to check everything was ok. Premises a bit dismal and dark.

I was married to an Indian guy, I know how to make Indian food... I'm sorry I don't understand how this place has such good reviews. I have never had such a awful food. We ordered simple dishes, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka, lamb,Dahl and rice. The tandoori chicken was cut off chunks of thigh, barely any meat pure bone... and... More

Ate here one cold evening at Big Bear after walking around for a while looking for something other than pizza or a burger. There was a warm atmosphere, fantastic service and tasty food, just what we wanted. We ordered Dahl, chicken tikka masala, one rice & one nan to share. Portions were generous and it arrived promptly, the only minor... More

I ordered the chicken tandori lunch combo: salad, chicken tandoori, veggies, naan, rice and lintel soup. The cost was approximately $9. Surprisingly good. Mt friend ordeted... More

The food was good and they were on top of making our glasses of water full at all times. It would have been nice to have a kids menu to make it easier for when you have small children that need to eat as well. Over all decent food.

Stopped for lunch on October 13th - my wife and I are both familiar with Indian and Himalayan food. I had the Lamb Naan roll and my wife had Chicken Tikka Masala. I have to say both were excellent - my only comment is that they could be more generous with the chutney for the Lamb roll - but it... More

This authentic Indian Restaurant is located in the Big Bear Lake Village. It is connected to a little store that sells clothes and accessories from India. The wait staff was very friendly. Their service was quick and attentive. I enjoyed the Chicken Tikka Masala and thought that it was very delicious and well priced. I also tried the apricot Nann... More

Very tasty food with prompt service. Waiters could smile more but they do work hard. There is a little store next to the restaurant selling Nepal goods. If you have never been to Nepal, here is where you can get an authentic experience of that culture. I highly recommend this restaurant. The #10 Masala platter with fish was yummy. I... More

Very good seasoned food but lacked any real heat. Excellent naan bread, good service and fairly reasonably priced. They had the front door wide open the night we went for dinner and it was cold out, everyone was sat in their outdoor coats or fleeces. My wife was cold throughout dinner but no attempt was made to close the door... More
