What a pleasant surprise to find uniquely done and good Indian food in a shopping mall. It's hard to design a restaurant in such a location because the architecture is all just one big box. At least the popular music being played is Indian, and not too crazy Bollywood while you're trying to eat a nice dinner. Having said all... More

The Indian food at this restaurant is varied and great for all different dietary restrictions and the authenticity was legitimate. The areas lacking were traditional Indian beverages and atmosphere. The family style restaurant felt cheap somehow (went to the location in natomas) otherwise was great and I would go just for the food again!

Just delicious, authentic Indian food made with fresh ingredients. I had a craving for chicken Tikka Masala when I saw the sign. I was thrilled when I found it in their extensive menu, and their preparation did not disappoint. I would recommend it to any fans of Indian food as well as anyone looking to try some different from their... More

This gem is in a strip mall off 80 next to a Starbucks and across from In and Out! It is another world when you enter . Soothing decor, efficient service, and beautifully prepared Food with a generous diversity of choices. So much better than most of these Indian Buffets. Not greasy, lots of vegetarian choices and very well spiced... More

OK, so it is in the middle of a mega shopping complex, next to a Starbucks and close to Walmart & Home Depot, Staples & so on, but step inside and the decor is very nice. The food is excellent with a lot of variety. They have a buffet on Friday and Saturday nights and they do not skimp on... More

Loved it. The waiters were very customer service oriented without being over the top. The Naan bread was fresh and delicious. The chicken Tikka Masala was sweet with just the right amount of spices, perfect for our 9 year old daughter. My wife and I had the Aloo gobi masala with garlic Naan bread and they hit it out of...

Just one person's opinion...not used to this ethnic food...could be outstanding to those that are more familiar. Nice place - good service, but for me...all the dishes tasted the same...good, but the same...if blindfolded, I don't know if I could tell them apart...I prefer a variety of flavors

I had the pleasure of dining there for the first time last evening. The greeting was warm and friendly; we were promptly seated; the food (chicken tikka masala, aloo matar, and chicken korma) -ordered to be "mild" - was very flavorful and delicious!!! Just right for our palate!! The wait staff attentive and friendly. It was a very nice experience.

This is a fairly intimate but very welcoming place place. The décor is modern but with definite Indian accents. The tables are pretty close together but that is ok. They do have a menu but we always prefer to visit when they have a buffet. There are so many options to choose from. Some are pretty spicy but most are... More

My wife and I went to eat here before a Kings game and we had a great meal. The lamb tikka masala was excellent as was the garlic naan bread. My wife loved the mango lassi.
