The lunch buffet and the menu items were great. Everything was fresh and very tasty. The restaurant is on the second floor so it is not as easy to find as the venues that open to the street, but it is well worth the search.

If you like spicy, mushy food, come here. They do a great job preparing good dishes that are delicious.

Loud Tvs playing Bollywood music, strong curry smell, slow service, substandard Indian food, sounds like most Indian/Pakistani restaurants in US? Well this one is definitely not one of those. Decor; very warm with rich red colored walls with exotic Indian artifacts. Service; very humble and...More

I've been there with friends, family, and people from India. It's universally loved by all who have been there. Usually I don't care for buffets, but their lunch buffet is outstanding, as is everything on the menu. It can be made as mild or spicy...More

Family style, made from scratch Indian and Pakistani cuisine. The Best in Boise and the Northwest. Everything is prepared by one chef. That chef happens to be my Mother You can expect an extensive beer selection with micro-brews, IPA"s, Porters, and international favorite. Over 40 to choose from at any given day. You can expect food made from scratch to your liking, and entree's you won't find at your typical curry in a can Indian Diner. Expect spices to be cooked right when you order them, an extensive Vegan and Vegetarian selection. Expect a good time at an amazing location in the heart of Downtown Boise with an owner operated business. We have a lunch buffet everyday that allows for a quick lunch. If you're coming in for dinner, we hope you're not in a rush, our beers and wines are here for you to relax because the cost of home-style food is a bit longer wait time. The freshness and flavors of our dinner are meant to be savored and explored. We look forward to your visit!
