My wife and I love Indian food. We have been here several times and it gets better with service and food. The food has good flavor and the prices are reasonable. We will continue to attend future dinning with Minerva..

A good Indian restaurant is like a chance to travel without leaving home. This authentic food gives you that feeling. The menu is varied, the food is fresh, aromatic, delicious and the naan does not disappoint. Take a trip—-a culinary one!

This place is probably better for take out than dine in. The service is very slow and they play music too loud to have a conversation while dining in. But the food is worth it! If you like Indian food and spices, then I would...More
