The old problem of dark meat instead of white meat raised it's ugly head. Quality Indian restaurants do not use dark meat. This place seemed unsure what they were serving. The chicken was moist and well cooked. The sauce (Vindaloo) (Mango chicken) was nicely seasoned but you had to hunt for white meat. The Vindaloo used potatoes showing they don't... More

My wife and I dined here for lunch today (11/9/16) and had the lunch buffet. This was the first time we ate here, and went on a recommendation. The food was generally good, the pea's and cabbage were very good; the chicken dishes were average. The atmosphere is nothing to speak of, and the service same. We did like the... More

We had a really excellent meal here, truely one of the best Indian meals we have had (from a group widely traveled in UK, Europe and the Indian sub continent). There was only one waiter, but he was kind and helpful, as some of our group needed takeout and the rest ate in- nothing was too much trouble. We particularly... More

We had a take-out for five people. We had a mixed array of food, including dahl, vindaloo, tandoori, etc. It was generally authentic and well prepared. We had ordered off the web, called it in, and picked it up. We should have heeded the advice on the menu to specify how degree of spiciness. It ended up being entirely too... More

While the menu is extensive and very interesting, execution was not very good. The lamb biryani was heavy and lacked dimension, and the chicken tikka kadai had an oddly soft and chewy texture like it was undercooked. The nan was greasy. The dal was OK. I was so sad - I wanted to love this place because of the extensive... More

Years ago this place was amazing. There was a young man who was the waiter for the entire restaurant and he was so thoughtful and attentive. The service was wonderful and whenever we visited from out of town, he would remember us. The food is amazing. Best Indian around. The service is insufferable. The other couple we were dining with...

Have eaten here twice while traveling on business. Both times I've been pleased with the variety, preparation and of the food and warm friendly service. A REAL TREAT.

Just came from lunch buffet and was treated to authentic, delicious assortment of Indian entrees and sides. Service was very attentive and waiter kept water glass filled and used plates removed quickly. Reasonably priced for all you can eat buffet including rice pudding for dessert. Will definitely return when I am in the area.

Bad food, very unclean, staff does not care. Don't make the mistake of trying this place. No real service, more like help yourself and figure it out yourself.
