i was left confused as to what type of Indian restaurant this was in terms of the cuisine and the decor. We were missing Indian food so we searched this out. The quality of food was acceptable but the prices on the higher side.

This Indian food was solid. Two colleagues and I shared a few dishes. Good flavor in lamb and shrimp curry. Naan was good. Fried appetizer was enjoyable. Beer was cold.

No place could have been worse- the naan was stale , the chicken and dal tasteless. The service was as bad - we didn't eat the food and the waiter didn't even bother to ask why we didn't eat ?!

Met our Houston friends here. A very nice place. Eager to please, good service. The lamb with lentils was excellent, with a little spicy aftertaste. Vegetable dishes were all good. I definitely recommend this place. Reasonable prices.

Curry sauces thin and not well-spiced. Garlic powder (not sliced or diced garlic) on garlic naan. Ma'am on the dry side. Staff not particularly nice. Glad I didn't see the kitchen.
