AS I WALKED UP TO THE UNASSUMING STORE FRONT, I WONDERED TO MYSELF IF I HAD MISREAD THE POSITIVE REVIEWS. HOWEVER, I HAD NO NEED TO WORRY. FROM THE MOMENT THE GRACIOUS HOST SEATED ME, UNTIL I REVIEWED THE EXTENSIVE AND VARIED MENU, I KNEW I WAS IN FOR A TREAT. I FOCUSED ON VEGETARIAN DISHES THIS VISIT, AND I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. I ORDERED A SPINACH/MUSHROOM DISH, AND A RED BEAN/TOMATO SAUCE DISH, BOTH MEDIUM HEAT, AND THE FLAVORS WERE ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! THE COMPLEMENTARY NAN BREAD WITH GARLIC WAS DELICIOUS. THE BEST MEAL ANYWHERE THAT I HAVE HAD FOR QUITE AWHILE, AND THE BEST INDIAN CUISINE I HAVE EVER HAD. I CAN’T WAIT UNTIL I CAN COME BACK FOR ANOTHER VISIT AND SAMPLE OTHER DISHES. More

We took our friends who were visiting from Indiana there for dinner and sat outside on the patio. The service was excellent and very attentive. All 4 of us enjoyed our meal. The fried ice cream dessert was fabulous and plenty to share with 2-4 people. Definitely a restaurant we will go back too. More

Went for my husband's birthday. We were seated right away and both the hostess and server were extremely friendly, welcoming and helpful. Food was excellent. We had the pork loin and halibut. For dessert my husband ordered the cobbler and they wrote happy birthday on the plate with chocolate sauce. The views were awesome and we'd love to go back again. More
