    Chicken tikka was good. Also liked the chickpea stew.

    Lots of good vegan options, unfortunately the naan isn't vegan though. You will need to request no butter on the rice

    Saag with Lamb and coconut Naan bread was amazing!

    Chicken or paneer saag - and get garlic naan!

    Amazing Indian food! Long live the Garage Mahal!

  • Sam S.
    The chef is Goan - steer toward South Indian dishes on the menu.
    Sam Sherwood · July 15, 2015
  • Josh M.
    Very good garlic naan. The aloo gobi is decent too.

    It's got an eclectic vibe with great decor and atmosphere. But the food is not authentic at all and is very catered to American tastes.

    Indian seafood and channa masala!

    A reservation is a must-have on a nice evening. Wait times are sometimes over an hour if it's crowded on a weekend! Get out of the "chicken tikka masala" rut. Try the malai kofta, or chicken korma!

  • Bugra C.
    If you have no choice it's ok but try somewhere else. Nothing special about here and waitresses are annoying

    Awesome authentic chai

    Puri puri was a joke. Cold, 3 garbanzo beans in flimsy shells. Not worth it.
    Katy Thompson · March 5, 2015
  • Katy T.
    For being Goan and asking for "extra spicy" my vindaloo tasted less spicy than my mom's spaghetti sauce and servings were tiny. Skip it and do Bombay Bistro instead.

    Great Indian food find on Rainey St. The menu had nice spicy options that my boyfriend and I really enjoyed!

    FYI: Gratuity is added to parties of 5 or more. You can still bring your own wine but they charge a $15 corking fee or buy a bottle of theirs and they waive the fee.

    It's hard to get a table after 7pm. You can make reservations online.

    Beef curry is excellent go for extra spicy

    Their food smells great, not had it yet, but the service, the service is sooo poor. More cooks, servers, a manager, please? I hear the food is amazing but yeah, this is a problem.

    Awesome food and great service

  • Shikha K.
    Decent Indian food, although not very authentic. If you want it spicy, be sure to ask and ask for extra hot sauce. Kulfi and paneer paratha are great.
    Shikha Kaiwar · March 26, 2014
    Horrendous service. Before leaving and complaining, server over-sprayed everyone with cleaner. Told us to "Yelp about it." Brick and mortar doesn't suit this place. · March 23, 2014

    Re-located to 73 Rainey St. to a brick and mortar.

    Nice little place, food is pretty good! Definitely get the chai!

    Food is delicious, but with nice weather the wait here gets ridiculous. It's quicker to order your food to-go and eat it at a Rainey bar. Bring cash in case their card machines go down (does happen).
    caitlin carlson · October 23, 2013
  • Sherry Y.
    Tikki Masala (I think that was the name) curry was soooo good! :D Got a free naan for checking in on Yelp. Nice place. Server gave good suggestion for curry.
    Sherry Yu · September 9, 2013
  • Sadie S.
    Insanely slow service! Be prepared to wait a LONG time. Brought out my entree before my naan.. For real!?
    Sadie S · September 2, 2013
  • Clarke R.
    If you're headed to Rainey for the night definitely start here for a great meal and your own brew.
    Clarke Rahrig · July 27, 2013

    Chicken Tikka Masala, spicy!!!

    It's BYOB!

    Food is amazing, wait staff is awful. Slow and unresponsive.
    Pres Sculls · July 3, 2013
  • Austin Chronicle
    Our favorite dishes here are the dahl makhani (lentils in a creamy sauce) and Malabar (lamb, coconut, onion). The level of spiciness here depends on who's in the kitchen, so it's a good idea to ask.
    Austin Chronicle · June 17, 2013
  • Tiffany L.
    The environment is great. Sometimes they even have live Indian style music and fire throwing shows! The prices are quite high for a trailer food spot , curries range from $9-14 . BYOB NO CORKING FEE!

    BYOB, but you can run across the street to Clive and bring wine over or buy beer at the little store on the side of Craft Pride.

    Great food, laid back, and you're allowed to bring your own booze!

    SAAG PANEER XXX spicy.
