Don't let the swankiness fool you, the food is damn good. Breakfast and lunch are counter service while dinner is tableside. [Eater 38 Member]

Edgy food, and great beers.. The best dishes are often street-food appetizers and thali combination plates. Indian food with atmosphere.
Best new restaurant
Chutney!! The best dishes are often street-food appetizers and thali combination plates.
They serve breakfast until 3 pm! I love that.
Try gluten-free Indian food in a traditional indian thali at pondicheri. Their paneer curry, pumpkin-coconut curry, smoky eggplant, sautéed greens, dal, pickled apples, kheer with naan is delicious!
Get the chocolate chip chili oatmeal cookie.
Unusual Indian food. Quinoa khichri is yum!
Lamb mint burger is delicious!
Watch for the coveted booths. Special breakfast menu during weekends: brioche! It's a must. The thali is delish, but gets rather spicy. Oatmeal & yogurt are both surprising and tasty.
Just devoured the Vishnu platter for Meatless Monday. It was delicious.
Shrimp chutney salad is great! Try the cookies too!
Uh-mazing Indian food! The Rancher Thali was a fantastic sampler.

Meatless Mondays. Do not miss them.
Meatless Mondays starting in 2012. Can't wait.
You might want to ask your server how spicy the food you're about to order is.
Waiter said no samosas. Sold out. Table next us had samosas just delivered. Complained. He said Oh we just must've gotten them in again. The phucker.
Everything. Must get Madras Coffee and chai pie.
It was so American style Indian restaraunt. Quite didn't understood the food.
Wonderful place. We chose to celebrate our anniversary here and told them so. They kindly gave us free dessert!
The gulab jaman donut
Lamb burger is solid but I think other items in the menu are better
Papdi chat is good but a little over seasoned.
Laal juice and the Frankie!
Paneer curry and the mango lassi
Something very different! Low marks on quantity high on ambience
Fabulous food and lamb burger was awesome
You might not expect it because of the location and the awesome interior design, but this place does pretty solid food. No need to haul yourself to Hillcroft- ingredients here are really fresh.
Vishnu Thali plate is to die for! Great outdoor seating on a breezy day!
I read on culture map that all the awesome pastries are going to be available upstairs once they finish building out their bakery up top. Try the Sayel Lamb!
My fried chicken came out raw. Needless to say, not a positive experience.
Dish: once-a-week special of chickpea-flour fried chicken
In addition to all the hoity-toity fusion stuff on the menu, they perfectly execute a butter chicken with the right amount of heat.
The paneer curry is yummy!!!
Awesome food - very affordable - great service - try the Chicken Frankie
Very low key place, perfect for a mellow night. Interior will relax you and the outdoor patio is chill too. Oh and amazing organic juices. I split the Habi and the Naka with my best friend. Delicious.
If you like spicy, go for the Sayel Lamb. It's good with a cool glass of their mint lemonade.
Это очень вкусное место!
