The food is decent and they have a wide variety, but it's not authentic food. Their curries are all a bit generic and lack the variety of spices they should have. But good for a quick meal.

They have options to make entrees a meal which comes with naan and veggie preparation of the day. The naan was soft and tender. The gravy and daal were savory. Among the appetizers I tried Pappri chaat and Paneer pakora, both were delicious. Servers were really polite.

Clean, great service, delicious tasty authentic Indian menu. We thoroughly enjoy their food preparation and service. The noon time crowd suggests that many others do as well. We migrate to the roti naan and garlic naan, chicken tikka masala. The Tandoor Mixed Grill will easily satisfy two, it's our choice for a great lunch. The curry 'heat' level is appropriate to enjoy with fear of burning the mouth.

I've been there several times, each time I discover a better plate that the previous one, you should try the Chicken Tikka masala (dinner), big portions and value for money.
The place itself is a cozy and all the waiters are very helpful, the kitchen makes a very tasty food, it's hard to find mild plates, yet there are some plates which are not that spicy.
