I ordered Pakora (battered & fried onions and spinach) served as an appetizer with chutney, followed by vegetable korma with rice. Everything was so tasty, and when I said medium for the level of spiciness I wanted, that’s exactly what I got. Great food, fast service and a friendly atmosphere. I recommend it over the large chain restaurants that abound in the same neighborhood near the mall.

After moving back to Maine after being gone for several years it was nice to find an Indian restaurant that is like the ones we have enjoyed in other states. We went for the lunch buffet and were surprised by the size of the buffet. Everything was very good. The nan is some of the best we have ever had. Service was great! We will definitely be back.

First of all they were very accommodating even though we reached there at the time of closing so that is kind of them. Most of the items in the lunch buffet were empty so we resorted to a-la-carte. The naan we ordered was really good and also the paneer tikka masala. The size of naans were pretty big and it was well baked. The chicken chilly that we got was not genuinely chinese but was tasty. Only thing that disappointed us was the fried rice, which felt like a biriyani. Otherwise we had a good lunch at this place.

I have lived in India and some of the food here is pretty close to what you would get natively.

Dosa is very good. Sauces are good. It would be nice to get more chutneys with meals.

Service is prompt but a sometimes a bit stiff. Guests are Gods...... right?

I have eaten here several times for dinner and will continue to.
