Went there for dinner and ordered an appetizer and 3 main courses. All of the food was fantastic and the food was great. I highly recommend it.

A really nice place for a casual dinner. The restaurant is run by very hard working people, including the boss who comes by to check on service/quality, and as regular traveler to India and having lived in Asia most of my life, the tastes come very close to the real deal in India. As always, working with local ingredients makes... More

Excellent spot for well-prepared Indian food in Harvard Square. The setting is fine - a bit lighter and more spacious than standard Indian restaurants. Decor is not wildly upscale, but neither are the prices. The service seemed extremely attentive, and the manager and chef went out of their way to help one of our party who has a very restricted...

Very good Indian food. It was delicious and the selection was just great. Service was a little slow (therefor one point deducted)

Really nice, waiter was attentive and friendly and prices were decent. I have a nut allergy and often find restaurants dont know what's in their food, but the waiter knew immediately that the dish I'd asked about, chicken tikka masala, was nut free. Refreshing! brilliant value, portions are huge and unlimited free poppadoms for the table. Recommended.

We had a very satisfying late lunch - tandoori chicken and a lamb curry. Servings were generous, service was prompt. The chicken order was so large we took it back to our hotel and it was great cold for breakfast.

Went there for lunch buffet during the week. Very tasty and a decent selection of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes. The mattar paneer and saag dishes were very good. Very reasonable for the price and a tasty indian buffet (among several indian buffets I've had!)

Had an amazing INDIAN mean here on a Sunday afternoon. Of course the food was excellent but what stole the show was the quality of the service. Amazing staff who went out of their way to get us whatever we wanted and at the end of the mean the manager paid us a visit and checked how we enjoyed our... More

Pretty good Indian food but not great. You enter through a small mall and with floor to ceiling windows all around, the mall feel carries into the restaurant. A little overpriced in my opinion.
