This place is a dirty dive. I walked in and walked out. Not a soul inside at 12:30pm. Prices were high for that little place.

Couples night, excellent flavors love that it is BYOB, menu prices are reasonable! We ordered Paneer Pakora, Aloo Gobhi, garlic naan, and lamb vindaloo (not pictured). 4 stars since it is street parking and busy downtown area.
