Excellent and unusual food. Fish in fish curry was perfectly cooked: not at all overcooked, as is usually the case in Indian (and other!) fish dishes. Breads were also great: peshwari naan, not all that common on local menus, especially good. Service was fine also. Only complaint is that the tables (at least in the patio area) are too small to accommodate an Indian meal.

My wife and I went for our anniversary and her birthday. We had an amazing time. They served us complimentary champagne and the chef made us a special order of the mussels since it called for saffron cream sauce and my wife has an allergy to saffron. Our main entrees were delicious and the portions were large. My wife had the pork tenderloin and I had the Cioppino. Chloe our server was amazing. Definitely a place to go.

Ellen was our waitperson — outstanding service! I had the lobster & shrimp fettuccine. It was perfectly sauced and the pasta had a pleasant bite. The dirty martini was yum! My dining companion had the spaghetti & meatball — absolutely delicious, and more than enough. We shared a gooey butter cake — over the top fabulous!

I love this Brazilian restaurant. The food is authentic Brazilian. My Brazilian girlfriend and I had dinner and she loved the food. The quality of food is great and cooked to perfection. I like my meat meat rare and my girlfriend like hers well done. They were able to satisfy both of our preferences. Also, the servers were great. Very professional from the time we walked in until the time we were finished. They were friendly, personable which made our dining experience incredible. The atmosphere was very relaxing. The cost is very comparable to many Brazilian restaurants I've been to. I can't wait to go back.
