The tandoor is a pit oven made from clay and it burns with charcoal.

Indian food owes its popularity in the west to the concept of curry and rice. Contrary to common belief, curries are not prepared from curry powder, but with a special blend of spices and herbs, blended fresh every day for each individual dish. Curries are not always hot, as is generally expected; they can be mild, medium, or hot according to your choice.
All our curries are served with basmati rice and chutney

Take-out food was excellent, flavorful and not too spicy. We try to stop by for take-out because we love Indian food. Coming from Bradford, UK, I have a high standard for curries.

The best Indian restaurant in Hanover NH. The service is a little slow, but the food is very good, Be careful not to get the hot, unless you are used a 10-alarm fire. a medium hot is usually good enough.

The food here is amazing and very cheap! The chicken Kashmiri is my favorite dish there for sure. The only real flaw is that it is not very clean..
