    The food was very good. Unfortunately the staff was not accommodating at all. We arrived promptly for our reservation. The host sat us at the table by the entrance door that was wide open. It was over 90 degrees outside. We asked if they could please move us closer inside or to close the door because it was very hot. They refused to do any of that even though there were several available tables further inside. They told us they were reserved. After we finished our meal, we noticed that a few of those tables were still available. We were miserably hot the entire time even though they said they turned up the AC. Unfortunately with the doors wide open, it didn’t help. Food was delicious.

    Delicious take on nouveau Indian cuisine that still includes some much loved classic dishes. Enjoyed exploring new interpretations of Indian dishes and everything we ordered was delish. Well done !

    First we sat outside because we are avoiding indoor dining due to covid. The Service was excellent and the server was attentive to our table. They need a little decoration on the table or seating area outside to provide a better experience. The appetizers we ordered are the watermelon salad which is amazing, the cauliflower was good but our favorite was the chicken bao buns. We shared the mixed grill and we chose the three meats, chicken, salmon and lamb chops. The lamb chops were undercooked and had a weird texture. We ordered eggplant and it was whole pieces in a delicious sauce. We had a good experience and Delicious food overall. I will consider going back for a special occasion.

    overpriced food with fancy decor. Taste could have been better for the asking price. Table are small to have 2 food items and a very large garlic naan adjusted with the glasses of water.

    Had heard a lot about this place but it turned out to be a disappointment. The presentation was great but the taste was a big let down. The seasoning was off on most dishes with no salt. The tacos on the ship tacos were too dry and likely stale. The crust of the kerelan chicken fry was burnt and was not seasoned well, and some of the seasoning still damp. Likely fried at the wrong temperature. The shrimp moilee was sweet as a dessert - definitely not how it is made. The lemon rice that came with it had no salt what so ever or any tang from the lemon. The butter chicken was also excessively sweet. The dessert was very ordinary as well.

    A group of servers were standing outside and talking loudly and passing comments on their guests. One of the servers, one with tattoo on his arms, had flour on his outfit and looked pretty dirty. He was making cat calls to folks across the street. He even abused one of the guests in the local language. The tables were dirty and the bathroom was stinky and the servers were generally behaving badly. The closing time per their website is 9:45 for Sunday but our server (one with glasses) said they closed by 9 and pestered us from 8:15 to put our entrees order. We came in at 8 and we’re just starting to work on our appetizers but he came 3 times in 10 mins. Finally we left w/o ordering as he started talking loudly about us to the other servers. Feel bad for the owners as they probably don’t know what is going on behind them.

    This was the second time we came here. The first was amazing. I made a reservation via there website through open table. When we got there our waiter from the first time saw us and remembered us which was nice. He had a big smile on his face and was very welcoming. The owner however, gave us a horrible table in the middle of the restaurant which was odd being that there were empty tables that were bigger all over. A different waiter came over and took our order. He was very nice. Other people started to come in and the owners treated them so much better. All two people just like us and we’re given tables along the sides. We informed our waiter that we didn’t appreciate the owner doing that. One of the owners came up to the table and questioned our satisfaction w the table. When we tried to explain she blamed it on open table and said they assigned the seat upon reservation. She walked away and I get a phone call from the restaurant asking if we were coming in for our reservation which was odd after I just told her she sat us in the middle in a small table that couldn’t hold our meals. How did open table reserve this table for me that you sat me at then your calling me to see if I’m coming.? Poor service on an owners behalf as you would think they would want happy customers. Aside from this interaction we did enjoy our food and the waiter service. I don’t know if we would return as the owners made us very uncomfortable and not welcomed.

    Good concept but food choices could be more .The noise level is pretty high and feels more like a family casual dining place but prices reflect otherwise.The wait staff is really good and goes the extra mile to make it a better experience for you .

    Had received very good feedback about spice bazaar but did not find it at the same level. Ambience was OK, food was OK, Bit dark inside the hall. The neighboring area is good and chirpy . It's good one time but need to really think if I want to visit it again.

    The food was excellent and not the standard Indian fare that you get at most restaurants. However, the noise level in the restaurant was so loud that you couldn't have a conversation with the people at your table. In addition, the service needs help. Our entrees were brought while we were still eating our appetizers. We were so rushed that we were out of the restaurant after eating dinner in less than one hour. AND there was no one waiting for a table. I will have to think twice about going back.

    The food was amazing! Everything we ordered was delicious. The overall ambience is very nice, although it's a little on the dark side, mood lighting but a bit extreme. Also the noise level is incredibly high. It was difficult to have a conversation without shouting when the restaurant was busy. The food quality was good that we will be back despite the very loud atmosphere.

    Thought it was really good for someone like who has never had Indian food before (like me). The menu was easy to understand and the spice level was clearly shown. We had the spinach Chaat as an appetizer and it was great, and the garlic Naan bread was also really good. Had the chicken Tika Masala for dinner, and it was good. They didn’t many desert options, and the one we had was ok. Overall, it was a good experience for our first time having Indian cuisine.

    I had eaten here before and returned because the food was decent and ambiance was nice previously. What a mistake ! They did not note on their menu that their chef changed and now EVERYTHING has nuts in it which I am allergic to. They wouldn’t make anything from scratch for me without nuts it was a disappointing disaster. They also rushed us from our table and the service was not friendly or helpful.
