    Not what I expected, its kind of an up market fast food Indian restaurant. That aside the vegetable somosas were excellent, loved the mint sauce they came with. Chicken vinderloo was good too

    Great, spicy vegan options, plus lots of tech heads. I think I have ran into at least one person I know every time I go.

    One of the best chicken korma I've tried. The sauce is thick and creamy. Maybe a bit sweet for some.

    Some of the best Indian cuisine in Austin. Very tasty. Try the lamb and the saag paneer.

    So much great Indian food in Austin and this place remains a standout. Can't go wrong with lamb.

    The korma is yummy, but ask for medium - it's really equivalent to mild spice on any other dish.

    Good food, but not a cheap option - shared samosas, shared garlic naan, and two curries, is almost a $35 lunch for two people.

    Try to malai kofta even if you're not a vegetarian! The dumplings & sauce are really good.

    I'm a huge tarka and clay pit fan...but this location is substandard :( food tastes completely different...very disappointing. The service also left plenty to be desired.
