Conveniently located on Santana Row - with reservations available by Open Table, this is an upsale dining experience. Not a hole in the wall restaurant. Great food, somewhat in the mid-upper price range.

The chicken kika Masala is outstanding and the lamb shank vindaloo is world class. They hand many great appetizers as well and the service is very good. Have not been disappointed here on food or service!

Came for lunch buffet. Food was good, but not great. Variety was just okay. Dosa station is good, but some where burnt, and there wasn't always someone manning the station. Dessert station was a highlight for those in the party who had a sweet tooth.
