Love this restaurant. Lots of food to choose from. I prefer the non-spicy food. But some of the sauces were rather spicy. The waiter was fantastic. Everything was great.

The food was terrific and a variety to choose from, at least 10 entrees , some with only vegetables and some with meat (chicken and goat), and 3 desserts (all very yummy). Some entrees were spicy but not overly hot. Then they give your table your own chicken tandoori and naan! The service was excellent. Would definitely recommend and go back. Be prepared to be completely stuffed (and have no room for dinner)! $3 less Mon-Thurs so go then!

Really an amazing experience, Food had genuine flavour and portions were good. The presentation was also nice :)

A little pricey, but worth the extra dollar spent.

One of my favorite Indian restaurants. They have a great selection of vegetarian and meat dishes to choose from the menu, or from the lunch/brunch buffet. I highly recommend.

Have been here frequently over the past couple of years as it’s our local Indian. Food remains good but the service has declined dramatically with inexperienced staff who really know nothing about Indian cuisine or dining experience. Disappointing.

Great dishes, really liked the goat and some of the naan. I'd like to see them expand their beer list a bit, and maybe sharpen up their cocktail choices, but they have decent options, and we really enjoyed all the dishes which were easy to share.

For most cuisines, I don't expect to instruct the chef on spice level, but it is customary to have some option with spice level in Indian cuisine. My husband's lamb had very little flavor other than hot. Overall, the food was good, but my husband ate very little of his lamb, and he typically is fine with hot food. Either the dishes need to be described if very hot, or an option given to choose.

Have been to this restaurant before and loved it. This time was not so good. I asked for mild spiciness on my meal, but what came was far from mild. Even my friends who like spicy meals thought it was very hot. When I mentioned it to the server, she said nothing. A few times people tried to take plates away while we were still eating. Overall just mediocre. This was a birthday celebration and we were all disappointed.

Food portions are getting smaller and smaller here but, the prices are increasing. Wasn't the same as past experiences and has been declining for 2 years now.
Not to include they sat us in a back room corner where it was extremely cold. Once we complained they then was able to increase the temperature so that was one problem solved but, maybe too little too late.

The food here was so good. The waiter was super knowledgeable and was able to answer all our questions. I was especially impressed that all of the Curry’s contained white meat and when I asked if they had korma he said it’s not on the menu but they can make it up no problem and they even cooked it spicier than normal for me. Will definitely be back!
