stop! do not enter! – poor service. bland food,tiny portions, chicken masala consisted of 5 small bite size chunks of chicken, when staff was told about bland food and having to beg for water while staff talked on phone, they responded like robots, saying "have a nice day' this place used to be great!
So-so. – I wasn't impressed. The nan was freshly baked, there was a nice variety and it was delicious. Service was very good. However, I the lamb dish I ordered was very disappointing. Some people ordered lamb, others beef, etc., but they all came out looking alike, and tasting like stew. It was very expensive as well. I don't think I'll be going back. Except maybe to order fresh baked nan.
Wow. The worst Indian food I've ever had...seriously – My wife and I were so excited to have Indian food remotely near our house that would tolerate a lot. However, the meal we just finished was so bad that I'm writing this as she's still eating the last of what we managed to choke down. First of all, when we got home and eagerly opened the bag, we saw that for $30 we essentially got what would be *1* meal at another Indian restauraunt. The mango lassi was WAY too sweet, the naan was pretty dry and definitely nothing to write home about, we only got about 1/4 cup of daal that honestly tasted like NOTHING. There were 5 prawn (the tandori "sauce" was WAY salty and too strong) and the 3 chunks of "cilantro spiced" chicken, like the daal, tasted like nothing. Really. The chicken and prawns came with what looked like maybe tomato chutney but in reality was very sweet tomato paste with a little chunk of tomato here and there. PLEASE SAVE YOUR MONEY. For the same amount of money, go to Le Cheval across the street and get 3 meals worth that you'll rave about for days.
Very Good – Excellent bread, food is very tasty. They change the menu everyday for lunch. Nice atmosphere and good prices.
