A wide-ranging menu of good, reasonably priced food; a comfortable, low-key environment; and friendly, attentive service—what more could you ask for?

It was fine. Not great, just fine. I expect Indian to be very flavorful, and I found this one to be a little bland.

Wonderful ambiance with lovely Buddhas representing the word "ahimsa" meaning non-violence. Atmosphere comforting and food even better. We had a wonderful masala dosa, creamed spinach, and mango lassi and for my nephew who has celiac disease the explanation on the menus for which dishes were completely gluten free was such an added bonus. Everything about this restaurant highly recommended.

Everything we tried was good and reasonably priced. Service was fine. It was lovely to sit in the covered back patio. It’s a great place to have in the neighborhood.

Had a lovely dinner with girlfriends and service was friendly and attentive. Food was very good but not as spiced as I’d like Indian food to be.

This is a great place for vegetarian food. Everything we had was tasty but we especially enjoyed the chaat appetizer. Service was very accommodating. We will definitely return. My only negative remark is that we were there on a cold night and were seated the back room near a heater that was a bit noisy.

We ordered the bisebelabath, which is a spiced vegetable curry mixed in with rice, which was excellent. In addition, we ordered the bhindi masala (okra) and aloo-mutter (potato-peas) curries. Both were very good as well. While there was only one person serving on a Thursday night, he was very pleasant and the food was served in reasonable time.
