I went with my wife on a Monday night. It was unusual because of the built-in grocery store and total lack of décor. These suggested we may have stumbled upon a gem. I ordered lamb vindaloo (asked for it to be very hot) and a paratha, and my wife had chana masala. Both came with rice and a total bill... More

I was hesitant to write this review, but based off of the way I was treated once again, I felt I had to speak my mind. Let me start by saying that the food is actually quite good, but the service is HORRIBLE! The husband (owner) has a major attitude and a less than welcoming demeanor. Most of their business... More

I saw this place earlier today and decided to come tonight to try it. I'm not sure if this is a restaurant that sells Indian groceries, or if this is a grocery store that sells cooked food. The food I ate was OK, but service was very sketchy and not professional. I will not be returning. There are better Indian... More

Having worked for an Indian family, I know this place is authentic! My charge's grandmother used to visit from India two weeks every year and would cook for us. I actually found out about this place from them - they said they were able to shop for authentic ingredients in their small grocery store. I love the paneer saag. Oh,... More

Passed this restaurant so many times but never stopped in until today. Pleasantly surprised at the selection and quality of the food. Very reasonable prices. There's also a small market located here with lots to choose from.

I simply ordered curry chicken with rice from Golden India, instead received a watery tomato paste with few spices and chicken pieces. As a person with that has had ample experience with Indian food from actually living in India with a host family and within the United States exploring ethnic Indian spots around the Washington, DC area and now Winston-Salem,...

At first we couldn't decide if it was a dinner or an ethnic market but it is both! Not the fanciest restaurant in town. It was recommended by Hector's coworker from India so we immediately knew it should be good. The temperature in Winston Salem had just turn cool and we craved for a warm, spicy, homemade meal. They delivered!... More

I love everything here. They're very vegan/vegetarian friendly, kid-friendly (our 8 year old LOVES this place), cheaply priced, and delicious. I'd recommend the Vegetarian Sampler Appetizer, either of the Thali House Specials that give you a sampling of the menu (I prefer the vegetarian), or the Chef's Dinner for Two. The grocery store is THE best place to buy spices... More

In my limited experience any ethnic restaurant that has a grocery store attached is a good bet. Don’t know what it is but these places, like PiPiRo in Mathews NC all have a variety, informality and ambience that I really enjoy. These folks have a big menu with lots of goodies and the quality of everything we had was very... More

Full Disclosure: I've been eating here for nearly 20 years. Love Indian food. This is a family run restaurant and grocery store. The best Chicken Tikka, Chicken Tikka Masala, Dal Mahkni, Bindi Masala... It's all very good. Just brought two exchange students here and they proclaimed it the best meal they had in the U.S. Casual. Delicious.
