I had convinced myself that good, affordable Indian food didn't exist (for me anyway), but this hole-in-the-wall gem showed me the light. I got the Butter Chicken, which was simply prepared and delicious. My friend got a gyro and she was really happy with it....More

Take out. Absolutely delicious, no frills Indian/middle eastern. Great flavor, daily specials. It's quick, inexpensive and worth trying. I'm addicted to this place. Go see Omar--you won't be disappointed.
