I had a dinner with two of my friends (I was 2 months pregnant then) and we noticed the dirty cloths and table. I don't know whether it was intentional or not, but the server guided us to this table next to a wooden wall and we immediately noticed the leftovers on the table and cloth. The food was not...

Food was very authentic - both northern and southern Indian options. However, lacking in cleanliness - we had a dirty tablecloth and an ant crawled on our plate. So not going back.

There apparently was a large party- a wedding reception or something and it sapped the restaurant. The waitress was friendly and tried- the food is relatively low grade and if you order a diner not entries you receive these tin cups with a soup and dessert- spicy- not appetizing. We waited for it longer than was comfortable. It doesn't appear... More

This is located in a strip mall with a few other food places. Great variety of interesting local food. If you crave Indian this will do. The location is never crowded, and the food has been average the three times we are there.

The manager Raj is an rude and uncivilized fellow who has zero customer service skills. If you try to book the party hall here, you are bound to run into trouble with this nutcase at one point or the other. Half way through the party I was suddenly being pressured to pay the party bill. Can't it wait till the... More

We should have got a clue when the place was empty at 6:00 pm on a Sunday. The poppadums were tasteless and soggy. It went downhill from there. The Vindaloo curry derived most of its flavor from a heavy hand with salt and monosodium glutamate. The side dishes were all cold, and heavily salted. What we think was okra was... More

The restaurant is in a convenient location with a nice ambience. Went for lunch buffet with my friends but was not really pleased with the food choices they had, as they looked stale.
