Don't let the strip-mall setting fool you. The food is tasty and fresh. Most item are well priced, but a full dinner is a little pricey.

Service was excellent. Very friendly fellow taking the orders, explained things when we had questions, allowed us to customize the item we wanted to. The food? Not so hot. We started with the Aloo Tiki. The patties were fresh, hot and fairly tasty. The chutney that came with the patties confused me...it had garbanzo beans in it. Not at all... More

Good solid place for naan bread and tandoori chicken. It gets a little crowded at dinner time, because it is good. A great place to stop if you don't have a lot of time.

This is a sort of fast food Indian cafe. Many meals do not offer basic rice side dish, and therefore you must pay extra.. Same with yogurt...nana etc. Good food and a little in the spicy side. Too hot for my wife's taste...but not mine. Be sure to check if you want extras... Not too much more expensive... Example...plain yogurt... More

Placed a to-go order, so sat with a beer while waiting. Restaurant is clean and was not crowded, plenty of seating. Good menu selection, price was definitely good. Staff was very friendly. Food took a moderate time, but that was ok with us as we did have a decent sized order. Got home and was thoroughly impressed with our dinner.... More

The $5 lunch specials during the weekdays are superb. Great portion size, tasty, and very healthy. Use the green sauce!

Good portions of average food. They have an informal seating arrangement and average service. It's Indian fast food with average food.
