Good, solid indian place. Nice atmosphere inside, if not a little cramped and loud. Food's kinda pricey, but good overall. Staff is friendly, but a tad disconnected... probably because of the language barrier.

For a nice change of pace, we like to go here for lunch. The food we enjoy is generally buffet style, but delicious. The Indian bread is a must. The chicken with rice is a favorite. Service is good. Place is not very big.

The food at the lunch buffet is fresh and very tasty. The coconut chicken curry, butter chicken, and tandoori chicken are all very good. My favorite was the mixed lentils with some of their very tasty sauces. The chai is also very good. The servers...More

When it's good, it's really good, but I find it to be a hit or miss. I love curry but just haven't found my favorite there. The Tandoori chicken, is usually quite good but not the best I've eaten. This place is small, doesn't have...More
