This was our first time at the Cafe. We ordered a variety of foods to try from the menu and we were impressed with all. We had samosas, raita, biryani, chicken, eggplant, etc. Thank you to Jeremy for the wonderful service!

Great Indian food to nourish & sustain. Was empty when we arrived around 6:30 but quickly filled with families. Food was terrific, service good. If you like Indian food, you'll appreciate this place.
