Had a business dinner here with 10 people total. Seating all 10 of us was no problem. Their service was as good as if we were 2. Drinks came quickly. Appetizers came out less than 5 minutes after order. Main course came out quickly as well. Food was very good. It's Indian food, so be prepared for some heat. For... More

had variety of utthapam, dosa & vada pav ... all of them had great taste. Only reason I give it a 4 star is that food not hot when it arrived at the table. Indian food tastes best when its hot. The rasmalai they served was the best rasmalai I ever had.

Ate here solo tonight. The food network was filming and it was a very special moment. The food here is spectacular and the drinks are amazing! Steph Curry drink, pappadoms, and Prawn Curry = wizardry! Will definitely return!

This is a great place for a quick lunch, there CTM (chicken tikka masala) is one of the best Ive had outside London. I also suggest their Saag paneer. Great owners and waiters that are very knowledgeable on the food they serve, highly recommend.

I would have given them a 4 for the food if our group of 4 hadn't been treated so poorly. We arrived to a fairly empty restaurant at 6:15 for a 6:30 reservation and were told our table wasn't ready. I don't appreciate being forced to sit at the bar of a restaurant when there are plenty of empty tables... More

The waiter was very knowledgeable about the food, and took pride in the cuisine. He was very helpful in being able to describe the various dishes and made good suggestions has to what dishes would make a satisfying meal according to what we conveyed about our food preferences. Very flavorful food, but some dishes may prove to be too hot... More

Yes, it's busy, and the staff seem to take pleasure in making you wait for no apparent reason, and drinks from the bar might take a while. Yes, it's noisy and can make conversation difficult, especially downstairs. Upstairs is more cozy and has less acoustic problems. The food is creative rather than authentic, and delicious.

Was in town visiting family and we all love Indian food so they made a reservation here. It is not traditional Indian food and I was curious to try. We ordered a dosa but somehow what we got was not meat or veggies wrapped in a shell like we were expecting. I got the lamb shank which was a little... More
