I must say that this experience was above my expectations. I took my daughter for lunch since I've been wanting some Indian food and was very pleased with the exoerience... I will definitely visit again... So from Mrmyreviews_1, this is a must do.

This is a small restaurant across the street from the hospital. Went there with a colleague who knows the food well since he is from the area. All the food is fresh and not appears to be made from scratch. Great flavors and you can chose how spicy. We had fish, chicken and rice and it was all great. Though... More

Always good for butter chicken, soup and rice pudding. New waitress initially did not add the chicken the they forgot the spice but it is always delicious. Chicken and spinach is also a favorite. Naan is always puffy.

Super deals for lunch! $9.99 for naan, soup, entree, drink and rice pudding dessert. That being said just order the butter chicken ~ totally a "mouthgasm". You will just want to sit back and wordlessly savor the medley of flavors that dance in your mouth! Seriously . . . just do it! (not overly spicy and the "food joy" you... More

The menu is abundant with wonderful flavor and spice to satisfy anyone's pallet. The atmosphere is small and very personable. It is not receiving a general plate of whatever you order, the feeling you get is that every plate is made specifically for you. A wondrous choice in authentic Indian cuisine and a must if you enjoy Indian food.

I am no connoisseur of Indian food, but I liked this one. We had variations of chicken with curry, tandoori etc. Everybody had a different one. 2 dishes were mild, 2 were medium which translates into American hot to very hot. My medium curry had just the right amount of heat. The rice was plenty and the tandoori bread was... More

Last time I came, I thought the mild was a little too mild, so this time I tried the medium, but it was too spicy for me. Live and learn! (and if you like spice, don't worry, I'm assured that it's lovely). So I'll stick with the mild. Their lunch is a great deal-- you get soup (always yummy!), rice,... More

My husband and I come here every so often for Indian food, because it's the only one in Lakeland. It's good, and we can always get a table. Some times the medium spice level is medium, sometime is very spicy. We always really like the food there.

An okay Indian restaurant. We tried it once, and wouldn't bother going again. Definitely did not like the fact that they pass around the same containers of chutneys from table to table, with dried up bits of food stuck to them. Not appetizing or hygienic.

Our waitress was extremely patient explaining the menu and options in English AND Spanish with my inexperienced and picky friends. The food was very good and the owner/manager came out towards the end of our meal to ask about our meal. If I'm in the area again, I would def eat there.

Thank Nate D
