My wife had a lamb sagai and I had lamb vindaloo and we shared a vegetable dish. We had been away from our home near Vancouver BC which has some of the best indian food so we did not have high expectations. We love indian food however and needed a "fix". The food was surprisingly good. Portions were a bit undersized and the menu was limited but we were not disappointed. Value was not what it should be to be a truly good restaurant.

Service was fairly fast and very friendly. We had chicken Tikka and lamb korma. Both dishes and the naan were excellent. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

Wifi is free, download speed was tested at 5.5 MPS.

Anybody who knows anything about Indian food will recognize that the grub in this place is excellent. I spent years in London and ate my way through the Brick Lane curry houses -- this joint stacks up against the best of them. Aside from the quality and authenticity of the food, the prices and service are top notch.

Located in a drab strip mall off of Grant Road, this place doesn't look like much from the outside, and the decor inside isn't a whole lot better, as its rather austere. But it's well worth the food, extensive menu, knowledgeable service; it might have been one of the owners who waited on us, as when I ordered the Lamb Korma, he wanted me to know that the lamb is "free range right now and a bit chewy, not like the March lambs." When you think about it, perhaps those aren't lambs roaming out there in december, but rather sheep? Which equals mutton, etc. So I switched to the chicken korma and it was delicious, mildly spiced (at my request) and very tasty curry sauce. My husband's shrimp biryani was good, well spiced, but not heavy on the shrimp. The only disappointment was that the server forgot our mango lassi and we had to remind him halfway through the meal, but then it came immediately and was very good and quieted down all the curry spices. No liquor license, so if that bothers you, find another place, but for the food, this place was well worth it and moderately priced. Good choice if you're in midtown Tucson.

Went here for lunch and it was delicious. The garlic naan, panek paneer and samosa were very good. The desert of honey balls were good also. Portions for lunch were smaller than expected.
