One of the MUST-GO restaurants for my next visit to Mountain View. For those who are not familiar or not used to Indian food, this restaurant would offer a good 1st time experience. DO NOT eat with your bare hands if you are not used...More

Been to this place several times in the past year for business dinners in the Bay Area. The food is good (not exceptional) but the service is pretty solid and they are very accommodating for medium-sized groups. The location off of Castro St is excellent....More

Ate dinner with family. Some entree’s were good but others subpar. Mango Lassi was good. Tandoori chicken didn’t have any flavor of spices only the color, but lamb boti kabob was good. Lamb roganjosh had too much salt. Dishes don’t come with rice or naan...More

The experience was a bit awkward with one of the servers being a bit too friendly ie over the top in compliments, partaking in our conversations, etc. The papadum was stale. But the palak paneer was great. Salmon tikka was not worth it. The complementary...More

I have come here many times with my kids or with dates - it's great for both. It's a great buffet at lunch! During the week it's even more affordable. Drinks are pretty good but the food is the best! Best butter chicken, amazing spinach...More

This place serves up a decent buffet but I prefer to order off the menu for less of that sittin' around" feel I get from buffets. Try it. You'll find much deeper flavor profiles and creamier sauces. Be careful they don't just scoop something out...More
