We visited for dinner on a locals recommendation. The service was good, but the restraunt was empty. I appeared that many people were doing take out. Food was fresh and delicious. They had a nice wine selection as well. We enjoyed our dinner experience.

Terrible, dirty, cold food, worst service ever and they ran out of ingredients. What a dump. So sad we used to go there regularly but since they have become more popular they have become the worst Indian restaurant ever!!!
