It's been a hit and miss with Indian food for me , but so happy we ended up trying this restaurant. My fiancé and I ordered the garlic chicken and chicken tikka masala with garlic naan. And both were super delicious! So many good flavors. When we come back to big bear we will definitely be ordering from here again !

The food is always really good and the spice levels are always spot on. I ordered garlic naan and chicken tikka masala as usual and it was delicious! This is the first time I've been here since they had their renovations done. The place seems a lot more spacious and has a better ambience now. I always come here at least once on our trips up to Big Bear and will continue to do so. Thank you so much for the great service!

Really impressed by this restaurant. Some of the best Indian food I've had. We ordered the Tika Masala and the Veggie Platter in order to try a variety of their dishes

Absolutely one of the best Indian restaurants I've eaten. Butter chicken, chicken curry, mushroom dish etc were all excellent. I want to try the lamb curry, but did not have a chance this trip. Next time.

This restaurant was amazing! The food was tasty and warm, the service was great and the price is very reasonable. Overall a great experience. We purchased two different chicken curries, garlic naan, samosas and a chow mein dish. Overall I highly recommend.

The food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Each curry dish is about $13 and they will ask you how spicy you want it from a scale of 1-10. We also had a vegan bread (aloo paratha- naan with potato) even though my wife and I aren't vegan and that was very delicious. The server was friendly and very attentive as well!

Service was okay, nobody ever cleared any of our dirty dishes even as they piled up & the restaurant wasn't busy. Chai tea was too milky. The mix grill was good, had a nice smoky flavor. The lentil soup didn't taste like lentil soup. It tasted like potato soup?! They didn't have any Kheer when we tried to order some. I'd eat here again when in the area.

The food here is excellent we came for lunch and we were not disappointed. The flavors were on point and much better than the Indian restaurants in Palm Springs where I come from.

We decided to give this place a try (after always eating at The Himalayan nearby) & we were not disappointed. The portions were large. Service was quick & friendly. The ambiance is simple & clean. Our group tried chicken tikka masala, butter chicken, goat curry, fish 65, chicken chat, samosas, with rice & garlic naan. Everything we ordered was very good! We will for sure be back!

Going to be 100% with you. Came here hungry- family ordered like 5 different plates which we all shared. Didn't get a chance to take photos. Will do next time (because definitely coming back here) service was amazing! Food was delicious. Sat outside and it was just nice! Enjoy the view and some good food.

We came after a hike right when it opened at 11. The vibe is chill and we were the only ones there the whole time. We were super hungry and the food did take a while to come out but the server was friendly and calm. The garlic naan is phenomenal! It was possibly the best I've had- with the right balance of fluffy and flaky and seasoned to perfection. It's everything a garlic naan could dream of being. The chicken tikka masala was super rich and very tomato-ey. I don't think I've had that taste before. The saag paneer was yummy but it needed the tikka masala to balance it out. We also got the chicken momo- loved the textures and flavors. The dumpling wrap was steamed perfectly so it's chewy and soft. The inside has a slight kick. If you want a solidly great Indian meal at a good price point for big portions, head up the mountain to the unassuming Big Bear. Good job, masala! My husband says "Even though I expected good food, it far exceeded my expectations. And that's rare." He rarely urges me to make a five star review but during the whole meal he's been telling me to so here we are. This also might be the first that we ate until we were full, packed food to go, and still had to lick the spoons because the curry was so precious.
