I love their shami and seekh kabobs. And the goat karahi is also awesome. Very friendly owners/staff and food is ready always on time. Been going there for years almost every week! Mostly carryout

I ordered kababs here (chicken and lamb) but was disappointed with the quality. The serving size though was good. The staff were not attentive, and overall the dining experience here was less than satisfactory.

Food is ok - nothing extraordinary about the food and service. Poor Customer service. I wouldn't consider going back to this place.

We were greeted instantly and warmly by the man behind the counter. We asked him for suggestions and ended up with a Butter Chicken and a Goat Karahi. Both were extremely flavorful and both were large portions. If you have never had goat, this is the place to try it! It was served bone-in, but was so tender it just... More

Ordered to go, and food arrived pretty quickly. Counter help good, though some language barrier. Got naan, chicken biryani, and a chicken kebab meal. All pretty good, and plenty of food with the biryani. Naan was so-so, and as for the kebab, I really prefer Moby's, although I had no real issues. Guess I'm just a Iranian kebab person instead...

We went for dinner, then returned for lunch. Four of us shared meals both times, and they were all fantastic. The service is quick and nice. Cannot wait to return here.

A friend and I stopped in here for dinner and decided to split the karahi chicken and the lamb tikka masala. I had read the good reviews on the chickpeas, so asked for a side of those to try them out. I'd suggest asking if your meal comes with the chickpeas first because one of our meals, but we weren't...
