we were looking for a spot for dinner for 5 and I found this restaurant through open table. The restaurant was pretty quiet so we got to talk to the owner. He was super friendly and helpful with picking wine and food. Will definitely be returning when I come back to the area.

Your first impressions are -- What?! Layout of interior leaves you wondering. But sit-down, and order; I don't think you will be disappointed. I'd seen the mixed reviews, and finally decided to give it a try. Very tasty Indian food, full of flavor, rich thick sauces in the dishes we ordered. We did not order spicy hot items, which we usually do at our regular place. Next time we'll kick up the heat a notch and see what that yields. The menu has all the standard items, and many that we'd never seen before. Nice wine list. Maitre d' and servers were attentive yet did not hover. Native Indians were dining, and we saw some ordering items we thought we'd like to try. We asked our Indian friends, so it may be some Dosa next time!

A very large selection of India's finest. The General Manager, Sam, could not have been any kinder and with his stories and laughter, we quickly felt right at home. Excellent!

We went for the lunch buffet. It was good, but wish there were pakoras and pappadam.

Fantastic food and service. This was my third visit, and each trip is more memorable than the last. Our waiter surprised us with an amazing unique family size fruit salad. We never are disappointed.

The best quality food I've had in the area, excellent breads, biryani, chutneys and pakoras. Service was a little spotty, our waiter trainee was hard working and attentive but he outshone the other servers. Strip mall location, with crowds of Indian families outside waiting their turn for a long table. Dinner reservations were a must!

Rude comments on my dress-no I don't wear a tie all the time, and why are expressing this to me anyway. I really knew you crossed the line when you began to give me your opinionated, antiquated, and biased religious opinions. If I were in your country fine, but Sir, that "Is Not The Case". Maybe your restaurant only wants a certain "Clientele" . Geez. A very uncomfortable conversation for a meal my family and I am paying you too!

We recently went there with a group and the food and service were excellent. I was pleasantly surprised to find an Indian restaurant of this quality in Columbia.

Placed in bar area and only one other couple being served. not given a choice of seating,. TV's were on and this did not lend itself to a quiet weekday eating out experience. Food was good and spicey which I liked but a little too spicey for my husband. Good wine selection. Brought a cleaning cart to the table to remove dishes which was not necessary and really tackey, however service was friendly and attentive.

Food was very heavy. Much heavier than any other Indian restaurants I've been to. Prices were not cheap for dinner and would expect more for the money. Service was great and friendly. Manager checked on us a couple of times. I would expect the lunch buffet to be much better than dinner.

This was such a pleasant surprise. We went with another couple and none of us knew much about Indian food. They took our preferences into account and prepared our food. We all loved it. A special mango mojito made the meal that much more special. We were worried about seeing the check after all the wonderful food and drink, but the bill was very reasonable. We didn't even use the coupon we'd brought-we felt like we'd be taking money from them. We'll definitely return. Very friendly and attentive staff!

Walked in and walked right back out. Now I know why they didn't post any pictures of this restaurant on the website. It looked more like a fast food style place. My family and I went out to celebrate my 50th. This was NOT the place to do it! Maybe another day when I'm in the neighborhood and want to try something quick.

The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. However, the ambiance is very flat and last time we were there the whole restaurant was very cold. We had to sit with coats on which is not very relaxing.
