The food, excellent. We got chicken biryani, mutton curry, lentil soup, riata, and kheer. Two things....kheer needs to be just a little thicker but was still very good. Second thing is the delivery was about 30 minutes behind. In total, we waited nearly one hour...More

Former name of restaurant at this Davis Square location was Namaskar but I see no slippage in the quality of the food. Lunch buffet is 9 dollars and a great value. Selection is ample and food is delicious. I love the tandoori chicken, rice and...More

Lunch here is just about the best there is. I really don't know why there is not a line out the door every day. The food, decor and service are very good, and the price is certainly right. When I compare it to the cost...More

Although there usually wasn't much business during the winter, I love coming in the spring/summer! Great atmosphere, the restaurant is open and the decor is lovely, the food is scrumptious! I highly recommend the chicken karahi, boti kebabs, lamb biryani, naan, and gulab jamun! My...More
