Catered a lunch for a local office. All dishes were excellent and the naan is incredible. I wish I had double ordered the chicken tikka masala as it was a hit.

Met with coworkers for lunch, all you can eat buffet. Gives you a chance to try different types of curry, and other less popular dishes. Fresh naan delivered to your table. Will definitely be coming back.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem in walking distance from my motel. The interior is really quite nice and I think adds to the dining experience. I am becoming a fan of those lush, beautiful Indian music videos. It was difficult to choose from the rather large menu, but I chose to start with muligatawany soup. It was... More

We stopped by for dinner on our way home from San Diego. The food was fresh and very tasty. The servings were plentiful for the price. My family and I purchased $40 worth of food and we had more than enough to eat. The ambiance is decent and the seating was comfortable I would definitely recommend.

This restaurant has really gone downhill! Decor is outdated (big deal), it's the service (or lack there of) and the cleanliness of the restaurant that sealed the deal of never coming back. We've been coming for a few yrs now and unfortunately the last 4 or 5 trips it's continually gone downhill. When we were to be seated at a... More

Yes...I will order a delicious Tandoor Chicken, with a fresh Naan, followed by their famous Biryani and Goat curry....will chow it down with a cold bottle of Taj Mahal beer...and end my last meal with their home made Kulfi. After this, I know I will be in heaven for eternity. This place has the best Indian food at reasonable prices.... More
