I live around the corner from this particular Baluchi's, and I agree with everyone else about the service. It has always been awful. But I think the food is much better than average and get takeout very often. They have a great deal, I believe it's $13.95 these days, and you get an entree, appetizer, rice and naan. The entrees and appetizers are limited but still a good selection. It easily feeds 2-3 people with moderate appetites. The Aloo Papri is a great appetizer and the Chicken Tikka Masala always pleases.

Pros: takeout bargain, food

Cons: service

The service was just so horrible. I just went there last nite with my cousins and we were the only people there for a little bit and all three of the wait staff were coming to our table every 3 minutes or so. I didn't understand why they were in such a rush to take our plates away as soon as we put the fork down. I was very dissapointed in such poor service. The waitress was very snooty and was not polite at all. Definitely not going to this indian spot again. Food and the ambience was good though.

Pros: Food, Layout

Cons: Service, Wait Staff

By all appearances, the waiter was congenitally rude. The water was refilled, but plates were almost janked from under each guest, and a request to repeat what he had mumbled was fulfilled mockingly. He might improve service by speaking. I disagree with other posts about the food: I believe the cooks use to much ghee (or whatever fat/grease/oil they use), and overall the items tasted one-dimensional. The rice, however, was excellent and worth the extra charge. I doubt I'll ever go to one of these chain restaurants again.

This is not what indian food is suppose to be like. I guess you can compare it with McDonalds... it's more like Bad Indian Fast Food.

Have to agree, the service and attitude is terrible.
But the food and ambiance was OK. Too bad cuz you deserve to eat well and be treated well. But, they didn't earn a good tip and we complained to the manager for what it's worth. The attitude must come with the high prices you pay. Left good taste in our palate, but terrible taste on our minds.

I hate going out to eat and the wait staff pretend as if you don't exist. We went early on a Saturday night before the 8:00 crowd begins to pile in and still we were treated as if the place were mobbed. The service was fast but not pleasant. The waiter got aggravated when we explained how we wanted our entrees prepared. They didn't even bother to refill our water. However, the food was very good. Another fault, everything is a la carte. It's rare you have to pay extra for rice at an Indian place. It's a shame because the place was nice, the food was good and the lighting was romantic. But the wait staff's attitude will make me rethink about returning.
