We had chicken korma, palak paneer, and samosas. All of them were very good. We eat a lot of Indian and this was one of our favorite meals. The only thing that was not great was the naan which was a little soggy

We used to love this place, but lately it has gone bad. Tonight we had a very bad experience. One of the dishes we always order (butler chicken) tasted weird. I cannot tell what it was. We didn’t complain, we just didn’t eat it. The...More
