We got seated after 10 minutes of waiting since they servers were too busy attending seated guests. 45 minutes after being seated we had to personally go get a server to give us water and menu. After requesting several items we didn’t get anyone to come take our order. We did make reservations. If they are understaffed they shouldn’t take reservations or once seated come and talk to guests and let them know that they are short staffed. Being completely ignored is very horrible service. I wish they worked more on their service. Their restaurant is also very run down. Looks very dirty and worn out.

The decor is not much but the food was excellent. The food stained menus need to be replaced though. The saffron tomato soup really hit the spot. We really enjoyed the lamb and chicken tikka masala too. The wait staff was very kind and it would be a great place to try if you have not had Indian food before.

Atmosphere was a little quiet, would be better with background music. Price was a little high, when you can get the same food at lunch for 30% of the cost.
