This is very elegant Indian restaurant, serving aide range of traditional and more contemporary dishes. The restaurant has received numerous awards, and its wine list is very good for a restaurant of this type (price range and cuisine). Service was good throughout the meal.

Very good food, but not the best Indian food I have eaten. The Penn Quarter branch was actually better.

I had heard a lot about this place and had been eager to try it for a long time. Right off the bat I would say don’t go out of your way to make reservations. The food is very average. The spinach dish stands out....More
