A word from Pamposh Restaurant
The essence of good Indian cooking revolves around the appropriate use of aromatic spices. The skill in cooking lies in the subtle blending of these spices to enhance rather than overwhelm the basic flavor of a particular dish as demonstrated by Chef Uddab. We take pride in preparing the dishes from fresh ingredients and hope that you will enjoy them.

    We loved all our dishes, from the naan, Pamposh salad to various other dishes. There was plenty to eat and more to take home for another meal. It was quiet and there was no problem conversing. The wine corkage was doable so that we could bring our own great wines.

    Have never been disappointed. Food and service of high quality. The menu is varied and you decide the level of spices. Staff knows the menu and are very helpful in describing dishes answering questions. This is a real gem. They have a wonderful dessert. Freshly made to order a custard with fresh fruit. Save room.

    Solid food quality, prompt service, minimal ambiance. Gets higher marks by default, because of absence of other good local Indian restaurants.

    This is my go to place when I need to decompress from a stressful day. It is consistently great. They do take out as well so I can just swing by on the way home if I don't feel up to going out. Fabulous food and people. Thanks! !

    This is our 2nd time here and the food was as good as we remembered Portions were just right for 4 people. Server recommended a double order of naan and it was too much and got cold waiting to be eaten. Apricot chicken marsala was nothing special but the lamb dish we ordered was splendid. Still a bit pricey compared to most Indian food restaurants we've enjoyed. Charged $10 for corkage.

    Modern looking restaurant. Not very ethnic. Food was very good. Portion were small. I feel it was very overpriced for what we ordered. $28.00 each X three before tip without alcohol or sodas, water only. . Won't be returning. Ever.

    They must have been running out of lamb as there was very little in the dishes we ordered. And the usual lamb dish we have was sold out.

    Pamposh is a gem that would stand out anywhere. The fare is typical Indian, tandooris, curries, naan, etc. but all prepared with care and attention to the spicing using fresh local ingredients. The tandoori vegetables are superb and don't miss the seafood tikka kebab for an appetizer.

    We celebrated our wedding anniversary by dining at Pamposh. It was a wonderful experience in every regard; delicious food, wonderful waiter, quiet and cozy. We ordered everything we wanted, appetizers, entrees, sides, desserts, beverages, left a generous tip, and all for $80! We've recommended it to numerous people already. We will definitely be returning!

    I have never been a fan of Indian cuisine because it seems one spice or another overpowers everything else. Not so with Pamposh. Their spice blends are in harmony rather than discord. The food was delicious and carried the right amount of heat, as requested. The service was prompt and efficient, always with a pleasant smile. They've won me over. I'll be back. Give it a try, you'll like it.

    As we entered the restaurant, we were quickly greeted by the hostess. Luckily we made reservations because every table was taken. What a busy night for a Wednesday! The food is excellent. We will definitely come back to try other dishes.

    Sorry to have to write this but I am sadly disappointed in Pamposh.Had visited in the past -- but it had been more than a year since ourlast meal here. Service was good but food was not nearly as specialas it was before. Something or the the chef has been changed and the meal was not nearly as good as visits past. Sorry, we won't be returning.
