    I got the lamb curry box. The proportions are definitely good to split for two meals. It tasted delicious, though I definitely think they took it easy on me with spice level.

    Delicious Indian food with a large selection, including kebabs and succulent chicken tikka. Friendly and relaxed environment. Water is not readily available so being your own if eating in.

    The chicken bhuna roll and paneer bhurji are the favorites. Late night snacks with Bollywood music blaring occasionally. You would see a lot of your drunk desi friends here at night.

    Awesomely quirky interior, cheap prices, and great food make this one of our Greenwich favorites. Get the chicken tikka roll or the paneer burji. Look out, the food here is spicy!

    This place is a great little joint for reviving nostalgic after college cafe bites around india. Most things on the menu are top notch but the kheema pav truly stands out.

    Cheap and satisfying kati roll spot. Paneer bhurji is a good vegetetarian option; the chicken bhuna roll carries more heat.

    Unda Bhurji Pav (eggs with onions and peppers, first item on menu) is a superior replacement for a breakfast burrito!

    The guy on the phone is hilariously rude but the chicken tikka is reallyy tasty. Too bad you can only get it accompanied with rice and sides (which are meh and take up a ton of packaging).

    Did not hit the spot. Sorry. All I tasted was oil, red chili and salt. There is much more to Indian food than that. Maybe it is a niche place for people who want lots of fat and red chili.
