It seemed like a good addition to begin with, doing good buffets and becoming a popular site for dinners among colleagues at the local college, but then it just went. Service was always dodgy and prices went a bit high.

My daughter trade me for a dinner with her first pay check. We had crab cake, and curry goat. It's so delicious. It's my favorite India food in the Island.

Horrible Food. We went there in the evening and waited 40 mins just to get the hot and sour soup (even though restaurant was empty) and finally when it came ...omg it was like I was drinking soy sauce. We order main course and that was also disappointing. I am never going there again.

This was the first time I have ever tried Indian food and it was awesome!! The service was spectacular, they really took the time to explain what everything was considering I had never tried this type of food before.... Place was cute and clean and I would definitely go back....

Due to many food allergies, I am always on edge when visiting a new restaurant. However this restaurant surpassed my expectations. Not much to look at on the outside , but the inside is a stark contrast. It is has a very charming, quiet, relaxing atmosphere with beautiful music playing softly in the background. The entire staff, especially Jay went... More
