Stay away - lipstick on a pig - they have tried to seduce unknowing locals by creating nice decor.

The food is tasteless, the peas were still frozen in the pulao rice, the bread dough was undercooked, huuuuuuuuugely overpriced for very small servings, and the service atrocious, in fact we are convinced that we were left unattended because the waiting staff knew the people in the kitchen had no clue what they were doing and were anxious about the negative feedback!!!!!

Oh, the beer was 9 bucks, and the mens room was permanently locked!

Once more - terrible!

Once more - STAY AWAY!

Cons: Too many to mention - but I'll do my best

As an Indian emigre craving good, authentic Indian food this is the place to go to. Serving the BEST Indian food representing all regions of India, this is an amazing place with its diversity of the menu offerings. The setting is elegant with museum quality decor and the most courteous servers. It is owned by a Chef who catered to President Clinton at another Indian restaurant and opened two other Indian restaurants before coming up with his present place.
A MUST for serious food lovers

PROS: Value for money, great food, nice decor, gracious service
CONS: no waiting area
