A solid choice across the street from the U.S. Grant hotel. We visited for lunch and the house quickly filled up with locals. The lunch service is a buffet And it is clear they use high quality ingredients. The choices are sufficient. The spices interesting...More

The place was rather quiet on a Friday night. The service was efficient, the food was ok. Had ordered a chicken biriyani, Naan, paneer kadai. The rice for biriyani is low quality basmati, got a little too mushed up. The bread and side was good......More

The restaurant is very understated, something like a transport cafe, but we had the lunch menu (was tempted by the buffet!), and the food was very good, and excellent value

I love Indian food, and this place sells it, but it's not what I'd call "authentic" Indian food. Quite frankly, I felt as though it catered a bit to American tastes (more mild, less flavors, less layers of flavor). The prices were good, the restaurant...More
