We love the food here. Consistent quality. We order takeout at least every other week.

We had a reception there recently. Firstly, we asked for all dishes to be mild. Unfortunately, the chicken biryani was at at least medium spice level. To be perfectly clear, as someone who loves spicy food, I found the biryani delicious! The issue is that we specifically requested mild. It definitely wasn’t and was difficult for some guests to eat. Secondly, we specifically asked days prior about leftovers (we were going to bring containers to pack food ourselves) and were told the food would be packed for us to take home. Great. Several guests confirmed there were plenty of leftovers (over half for some dishes). When we went to pick up the leftovers right after the event, we were given a bag with naan, a container of chicken korma and a container of chicken biryani. Roughly 4 servings. I find this strange given how much food was leftover and only 2 kinds of dishes were packed. Lastly, there was a discrepancy about cost the day of the event. The cost was confirmed on multiple occasions (ex. day of deposit and the Tuesday before the event) and was mutually agreed upon. The 18% service charge was not brought up until the day of the event. This should have been included during prior discussions, not the day of the wedding when we had a tight schedule to abide by.

I've gotten takeout twice from this place. Definitely recommend the veggie samosa, garlic naan, chicken biryani, and chicken korma. The raita is pretty tasty too. The coconut soup just tastes like light coconut milk so wouldn't get that again.

We had the tandoor chicken and a lentil dish delivered. There was very little chicken in the order, *maybe* half a breast worth, and the sauce had unmelted butter in it (ew). The lentil dish was essentially soup/sauce - no actual lentils to be found. Very disappointed with the price we paid for such little food, not to mention the low quality. Will not be eating here again.

Very delicious food. The goat curry, aloo ghobi, and shrimp biriyani were all very flavorful and filling. On the pricy side, but I enjoyed it a lot.

I accidentally ordered this in a rush thinking it was tandoori bites, the food really lacked any flavor, and had a weird after taste, I had chicken ticka, and garlic naan, which was a little tough.

absolutely delicious! their gluten free choices are great, the spices are just right, and I am delighted with their service and take out.

This place has been my go-to Indian restaurant for the last 2 years. The food is good, although a bit expensive. With the whole COVID thing, they've had customers just pull up outside and someone would come out with the the food and receipt to sign. The other day I pulled up and saw someone different than the guy who normally comes out. I waved and sat there a bit. I could see my food right there on the table. He didn't come out, so I looked up and he's giving me this confused face. I wave again, but he just keeps looking at me like I have two heads. So, I put on my mask and go in. I tell him that they had come outside the last few times. All he does is ask me my name. I confirm my name and order and repeat myself. He doesn't say a thing. I got a seriously rude vibe from this guy. I don't think I'll be going back. Too bad...

Ordered Chicken Biryani and it was one of the worst I have ever had. They mixed chicken curry with rice and served it with smelly chicken. Never ever going back to this place.

This is excellent. Sam is my wonderful host. He has great food. I ordered vegetarian thali. Open 11am to 3pm and 5pm to 930pm. Wine is good too.

This is hands-down the best Indian food in the area. They are very accommodating as well. Can't wait to go back.
