Diner Reviews
  • "This place is well worth a visit! The food was outstanding and authentic from the appetizers to the desserts: probably the best Indian food in the mid-Peninsula. I had the mahi-mahi baked in the clay oven, and it was tender, moist, delicious, and with just the right amount of spice. The service was efficient and attentive. We had an early booking at 5:45 pm on a Friday night, and the restaurant filled up fast. The only only negative was that, since the restaurant has a concrete floor, there is nothing to absorb the sound and the noise level was a bit high. Parking can be a bit of a problem, although there is a City parking lot 2 blocks away (the other side of Laurel Street)."

  • "We selected the 9:15pm dining time and only 20% of the tables were occupied which was surprising. They came by to take our order and since we were not ready, they came back two minutes later. They let us know the kitchen would be closing soon and needed to get our order in asap. We ordered and they let us know again that we would be unable to order any additional food items. While we were eating, two servers came over and let us know that the restaurant was closing at 10pm. Before we had finished eating they were already taking fixtures away from the table. When finished, they dropped off two containers and a bag on the table. We had to request additional containers and had to package our leftovers ourselves. Would not recommend."

  • "We brought out of town guests on a Monday night and the place was hopping! We ordered a variety of dishes - daal, fish tikka, lamb vindaloo, tandoori chicken, etc. Everything was delicious - the daal house (pun intended) special was luscious and creamy, the fish tikka was cooked & seasoned to perfection, the lamb vindaloo was as spicy as expected and the chicken tandoori was moist and flavorful. The service was friendly and attentive. Everyone had a smile on their face when they would come to our table to replenish our drinks. We are definitely looking forward to going back to try all the other dishes!"
