At the recommendation of my son, my wife, son and I took a visit and had an excellent experience.

A very pleasant place, a wide selection of Indian dishes, all vegetarian, yet you could find almost anything that you want. The Samosas were first rate, a definite to try. Sorry, but I am not that familiar with the dish names, but everyone was great. We had ample food, enough to take home. Four Taj beers and only a $70 bill.

Thank Barnesms

We came for a friend's daughter graduation and took the buffet. Really nice and hot spread of various south Indian dishes with a few north Indian dishes as well. They served us fresh naan at the table. Waiters were very attentive and nice. For a large group that we were, absolutely no complaints. We have been there twice since then.

We had kind of given up on Indian restaurants because we were so put off with the stale food and terrible service and horrible ambiance. But this Saturday we decided to give this joint a try, and were pleasantly surprised - the food was very well prepared and service wasn't too bad. Most Indian restaurants look shabby on the inside but this restaurant had nice lighting and decor. We ordered the chili paneer dosa (which wasn't on their lunch menu - but they agreed to make it for us - nice gesture), mantra basket - which was a chaat (snack item made with yogurt) and idly/vada sambar combo and salt lassis. Everything was really yummy! The sambar and chutneys were not watered down which was a nice change from some of the other Indian restaurants we have been to.
