    Best neighborhood spot for Indian food in the city! Get the chicken tikka masala, cabbage, daal, cauliflower and potatoes, chicken tandoori, and extra orders of their buttery naan.

    Good food (try the methi chicken) but disappointed on other levels. No starters past 11, disinterested attitude, scalding hot gulab jamun.. And 'service with a smile' was long forgotten that night.
