we were looking for some good choole bhature and online (tripadvisor) said this was the best place to get it so we decided to try it out.

Overall, the place provides some nice vegetarian Indian and South Indian options. While mostly South Indian, there were some North Indian dishes as well. The choole bhature were alright - the bhature were decent (fluffy, which I liked) while the choole were nicely cooked but very spicy.

The paneer pakora were excellent. Great flavor, nicely prepared, not over fried and not over spiced. The pani puri was also good but again too spicy

Overall, a decent place for nice veggie South Indian food

If you're not familiar with Southern Indian food, you may want to take a friend who is to interpret the menu. The atmosphere is nothing to write home about, but the food is outstanding. They serve it Indian style - on banana leaves. Expect to wait in line, but you can be sure that the food is worth the wait.

Good & budget restaurant if you can tolerate food full of hot spices & chilly. No concept of customer service and it is ok, given it is such a budget restaurant.

Our experiences here tend to be consistent. The quality of the food is excellent, and that's what keeps us returning. When it gets busy, sometimes the wait times are long - as much as 45 minutes. The service is acceptable, but not overly courteous. It gets the job done. Nothing more. The location of this place is not the best, in a strip mall in the middle of the so-called "Gandhi" district, which is pretty seedy.
