Decent Indian Food

The place has some decent Indian food. The recipes are quite authentic and the results do change from time to time, but are consistently good. The staff is quite friendly, but the service is a bit slow. The decor is nothing much to write about.

I think this restaurant is really good in a lot of ways but could be great if they made a few changes to some of their food.

We had the Mulligatawny soup, Saag Panner and Eggplant & Mushroom Torkari. We really liked the soup and the eggpant dish. The saag panner however wasn't quite as creamy as I like and the paneer was really dry and hard.

The dishes felt like they were laced with MSG, lots of it, even the rice was likely cooked with bouillon cubes.

The price was fairly reasonable and the service, very friendly.

When you first walk in the store is not that great. However it is not that bad. The first dish we had was the chicken biryani , which was about 3/5 stars. Wasn't that strong or have that nice biryani taste. The second dish was the butter chicken and the curry chicken was good 3.5/5. The naan was also fine .

Okay for groups , paid parking ,

Overall a solid 3 to 3.5 stars out of 5.
