    Both chilli chicken and szechuan chicken were spicy and really good. Service is slow though and it can get really crowded.

    Be sure to confirm your to-go orders - sometimes they just forget to make them.

    Spicy! The different dishes with ghost pepper is not worth it. Sautéed veggies for evening out the spicy food is recommended. Can get busy during lunch hour.

    Unlike some tips, I didn't find the Gobi Manchurian to be that good. It was quite bland and lacked the kick it should have. Much of the chicken (Calcutta, Chilli, Chowranghee) were pretty good.
