“Very good Indian food”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Some great interpretations of classic northern Indian cuisine. The only suggestion I would make is to use Basmati rice instead of the more typical Mexican style rice one finds in California.

“A great traditional curry”
Reviewed 27 September 2012

Really delicious Rogan Josh and Balti, they were full of flavour and tasted like proper authentic Indian cooking. A nice family run feel.

“At last.... great Indian food in Half Moon Bay!”
Reviewed 27 April 2012

This place just opened on Main Street, and are we happy! The atmosphere is casual but warm and quite lovey, but the food is what it's really all about. We've had dinner there when they first opened, which was the 'special' veggie plate - dal, rice, and other wonderful goodies, and that would have rated 4 stars. But the lunch buffet [at $9.95 a very reasonable lunch] is extraordinary. There was at least one meat dish, which we passed on, but there was also a large variety of veg dishes... all with very different flavors. Nina, the server/hostess who is one of the owners, told us she will change the buffet menu weekly, and it will include a combination of items both on and off the menu. I'm not a big dessert eater, but her yogurt-based dessert with cardamom [and I suspect saffron] was absolutely heaven!

Closed Mondays and it's only open for lunch 11:30 till 2 then dinner 5-9.
