Last week we enjoyed our first sit-down meal at a restaurant after a year of scrupulously observing COVID protocols for our risk level. We joined two friends for dinner on the patio at Kiran's and experienced a lovely evening. Our waiter was thoughtful, timely, and helpful. Our cocktails were delicious. The food was, as we remembered it, amazing. And we were graced by a visit from Kiran herself before the evening was out, which was a neat finishing touch. Thank you to the entire staff for making our return to dining out such fun.

Celebrating a birthday of a dear friend. Sweeter because we had not been out for over a year. Chef Kiran greeted us and we had a relaxing, delicious lunch.

I've always love Kiran's and the food did not disappoint. What was very disappointing was the placement of most of the tables one inch away from the neighboring tables. They are obviously trying to pack as many people in as possible. The bar is now in the dining room which adds to the packed in like sardines feeling. I'm not a fan of the remodel. Remove some tables. Also, the only rose offered by the glass left a lot to be desired, and only a small amount in a tulip shaped glass. Should be served in a proper wine glass. However, the new Waterford looking water glasses are a nice touch.

This was the first time bringing my mother-in-law who was visiting from out of town. The experience and food were excellent as usual. Chef Kiran even visited our table and spent time talking with us. It was a memorable experience that makes us want to dine there even more.

This place was recommended by a friend. We were warmly greeted by the hostess and sat quickly. However, after waiting 20 minutes had to go back to hostess and ask for a server to come to the table, even though there were several servers in the area around us. The server was not familiar with the menu, which was surprising for this price point. The food was just average. Spent over $100 and did not get a good value.

My wife and I enjoyed a delicious meal of butter chicken, dover sole, and two different types of Naan. Everything was perfectly prepared, and full of flavor. The ambience and service were both top notch.

Needs better customer service. When my wife and I went, we were greeted well. But, when we sat down our waitress introduced herself. After that we never saw her again. There was a sub waiter that stepped in and took over. The service was basic to the point of we were just brought our food and that was it. It's kind of off from what I am used to when it comes to going to an upscale restaurant. Complementarity Valet parking was a plus. The food was delicious. But, the waiting customer service needs work. It seems like they were totally out of tune to satisfying the paying customer.
I would give it one more try though to finalize my experience.

Very glad to see Kiran's continuing to serve excellent Indian-inspired cuisine. The expansion into the "Pizza Place" next door has brought us Naanza; Kirin's take on pizza. Not the traditional Italian dish; but a Mediterranean-inspired naan that is strong competition for even the better pizzerias in the area.
We miss lunch in the normal dining area versus the more casual former pizza space, but the service is returning to normal high standards and the food remains excellent. Thank you, Lady Kiran.

Great bar area, we always enjoy having a drink before dinner in the bar area. Food is always excellent and the wine list expansive. The dining rooms lack atmosphere unlike the bar area but the food more than compensates.

Just a great place, period! Prices are on the high side, but do not worry, well with the experience. Not just your everyday Indian food, on the contrary, very creative, or you can order your standard favorites.

Highly recommend you giving this a shot!,

PS. Great bar and bar tender/drink selection.

The food was great! Dessert was a little disappointing- chocolate
mousse cake was too dense. More like a light fudge. Everything else was five-star wonderful. I’ll go again and take friends. Milky chai was so delicious!

Chef Kiran — your team excelled today.

Excellent Server — Sarthak was both friendly and helpful in getting me what I wanted. That makes the BIGGEST difference. A server who knows what they are doing!
Excellent delicious food

My lacha Parantha ( I complained abt it last time ) was INSANE— best in town

Unfortunately we found Kiran's did not live up to the hype. Service was poor, this maybe down to the relaxed COVID restrictions - the diningroom was very busy. However a restaurant of this caliber should have taken this into consideration in planning.

We came for tea. The sandwiches were old, fillings looked dried out and bread was stale. The filling of the mushroom tart was good but pastry was also old tasting. Desserts were also stale. The scone and tea were the only good part. This was such a disappointment. We’d been to Kiran’s for tea in past years and this wasn’t worth calories, money or time. Beware.

Slow service. Mediocre food. Expensive price. Anti-thesis of a good restaurant. If you don’t believe me, go see for yourself, and waste your money.
