I’m sorry to say that this was a very poor meal indeed. I ordered the non-vegetarian feast and my companion the lamb saag. The word that best sums up the cooking was ‘lazy’. The samosa starter was a bought in, pre-made apology for the real...More

Went with a group of retired teachers. Normally not a fan of this cuisine but the menu was extensive, service efficient but not intrusive. Will definitely consider returning with family.

We had a great meal here. The food was very tasty and the service was excellent. We had the chicken tika masala, aloo gobhi and a spinach dish- all very good.

I really like this Place. Good selection of dishes, Indian beers and pleasant wait staff. Love their buttered Nan, chicken tikki, and their chicken tandoor.

The management sometimes confuse business with courtesy--they are noted for fussing over the correct calculation of a ticket while a line of potential customers wait to be seated, for worrying over busing tables while seated patrons hope their drinks and naan will arrive before the...More

Very nice atmosphere. Wait staff seemed helpful and friendly. We only tried the lunch buffet, so I have no review for the menu items. The buffet is reasonably priced and includes a large variety of items. However, in my opinion, most are bland and taste...More
