    High quality Indian fare in the Rainey Street district. Everything was excellent. Had the tikka and saag paneer.

    WORST service you'll ever have mixed with some of the best food. Really unfortunate. Last Saturday will be the last time I ever spend my money there. The service truly was appalling.

    Worst service ever. Tiny portions of the entrées. The picture I posted is the portion of picked mangoes. The host is the only nice person there. Never coming back

    Delicious food, great atmosphere, beer on tap, lovely patio and live music. What more can you want? Pickled mango with chili is delicious.

    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

    The chef is Goan - steer toward South Indian dishes on the menu.

    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!

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

    Puri puri was a joke. Cold, 3 garbanzo beans in flimsy shells. Not worth it.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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).

    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.

    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.

    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!
