    When I first heard “Curry in a Hurry,” I thought it would end with needing the men’s room in a hurry. But the food was great! But if you ever hear “chorizo in a hurry” you should run away. Read more

    Good food but lousy service. Go for the combination platter and not single dishes. Makes more economic sense.

    BEWARE FOOD SWITCHING when they take container "underneath counter" to give you food, they are switching your food to more profitable dish. They do it especially late at night & vulnerable looking pp

    The pair of veggie samosas are a popular bargain snack, and while the cuisine is mostly North-Indian, South-Indian dosas appear on the menu and there are plenty of vegetarian options. Read more

    Don't bother with the raas malai. For a simple place, two dollars for one piece is too much, especially when it's taste is just whatever.

    Their chicken kurma is sooooo delicious, juicy, tender and flavorful! The chicken tikki Marsala (sp?) is pretty tasty but my guy wasn't impressed with their cuts of chicken at all. I'd go back though!

    Medium quality food, kabab heated up in a microvawe, but still a better option for lunch or dinner than burgers & fries. WiFi hardly works on the 2nd floor.

    utthapam is ok for a late-night snack (the accompanying sambhar is very good), but masala dosas are bland and soggy. This kind of stuff is much better at Saravana, a couple of blocks down Lex.
