    Fantastic food. Potato pancake and shrimp apps, tikka masala and malai kofta all very flavorful. Huge portions and very professional waitstaff. Pretty impressive for the price. #dawat

    High end Indian cuisine in an ultramodern setting that is elegant and spacious. We love eating here and always order the Chicken Tikka Masala with a side of delicious grilled vegetables.

    The Raan is outstanding. A Tandoori leg cooked to perfection in the clay oven. Crispy outside yet SO tender inside. A wonder!
