Very tasty, though there are other trendy, high end restaurants where I do feel like you get more bang for your buck than here.

Excellent in every way. Amazing food, service, room, noise level. Only knock for me personally was dessert, but that is more my tastes than their execution.

Service was great, food was good but portions were so small and none of the dishes come with rice... you need to order rice and pay for it.

Many good dishes; however, my experience here, with its modest portion sizes and sometimes too subtle flavors, left me missing the experience I get at a good, traditional, American-Indian buffet.

Great ambiance, food selection, and variety. Great service by wait staff and managers. Attentive but not helicopter-ish. Great for intimate groups (4-8).
