Casual and quick Indian and Indo-China fare remains faithful to traditional spices amidst a more contemporary dining scene. – In Short
With a pop soundtrack piping throughout the dining room, curvy track lighting and a walk-up counter for placing your order, only the menu indicates you've arrived at an Indian restaurant. Traditionalists will find their favorites, however, including grilled chicken tikka and lamb curry, each served with the requisite naan bread. Head east towards China with a sampling of wok entrees featuring spicy Szechuan sauces, chow mein and chop suey.
Nostalgia pulls you in. Taste leaves you almost but not quite satisfied. – The idea is right. The yellow and red decor stimulates the appetite but the food is distinctly mediocre. A little recipe tweaking with salt and spices may do the trick? Unless of course the blandness stems from things being defrosted and nuked - then there's no help for it. The smell of old oil permeates sometimes and there were only one or two people behind the counter everytime we went there, so the service was unduly slow.
The one thing they did get right? The mango lassi. Creamy and delicious!
Finally! A good, classy, Indian fast-food restaurant – If you're looking for good Chinese food and great Indian food, this is the place to go. Someone has finally taken all the best parts of an Indian buffet and the standard fares of Chinese food and made them in a way that is so fresh and so tasty, it seems they make it from scratch upon ordering. With its clean and friendly atmosphere, it's great coming here for a quiet lunch or dinner with friends. With a gleaming clean restaurant and a great atmosphere, I recommend this for dinner with friends or a slightly romantic setting as well. Watch out though, I think it's kids night on Sundays : ) And the $2 soups are fantastic!
quick and tasty – Very tasty, authentic and good value. I've been here twice, and it's one of those order-at-the-counter then wait for your food to be delivered to your table places.
