    Got takeout with great anticipation based on all of the review accolades. Terrible food. Watery poorly seasoned sauces in pools around dry overcooked meat. Save yourself the trip.

    If you’re a vegetarian, this place is going to thrill you. Ditto if you’re a meat eater. And the kitchen is happy to make adjustments for vegans, so everyone wins. Read more

    I have stopped ordering samosas after my travels in India—stateside, they are often tough and taste like they were fried two days ago. But the two versions here got me back on the samosa train. Read more

    Vegetarians will want to try the meaty portobello mushrooms. I will admit I was skeptical about portobello mushrooms used in an Indian context, but it was awesome. Read more

    I will NOT be going back. Overpriced for the portion and there was something floating in all three of our water glasses.

    Restaurant looks fancy but food was disappointing. Not enough salt in anything. Biriani just has a lot of cashew and raisins but there was no masala.

    Overhyped. Poor service. Won't be back. Better chicken tika masala in our hometown for half the price & way friendlier service!

    The eggplant (Lucknow) and okra (Tamil Nadu) are excellent, flavorful vegetarian options. And the dal.

    Not too many vegetarian options.

    strongly suggest the dinner specials. Comes with a samosa, your entre with rice, naan, and fixings. By far the best Indian restaurant I have ever been too. Sooooo much flavor !
