Uncooked and unhealthy food i ordered for pick up on sept 13 around 9.30 pm. i knew they close at 10 pm so i asked if they were able to make food. they said they will make any order. so i placed order for 2 chicken soup, 2 vegetable samosa, 1 chicken choyala, and 2 chicken momo. i went there and picked up food. and when we were ready to eat i noticed there was no choyala,so i called right away, the guy told me they are closed at that time and asked me to come on next day to pick up food. and chicken momo was not cooked and smell very bad, smell like rotten. i was so mad with restaurant. if they cant make order then they could had simply said they cant do it and why the hell they would sell rotten and smelly food. i went next day with rotten food, those guy first denied then i told them i will complain to health department then they asked me to get different food. i asked for my refund which they denied to give it back. do not order food from this restaurant at night time. trust me they will miss order and also high chance of getting rotten food. I am going to write to city of Somerville about this restaurant

Only been here for their lunch buffet and I must say I wasn't completely impressed. While they had a good selection of options including vegetarian, the food wasn't as appealing and seemed to have been sitting out for a while. Perhaps it the severing trays they use or that the food didn't seem that hot both times I went but I would definitely go back and try again maybe for dinner. The prices were pretty good and I got an amazon local deal for the buffet so the price was completely worth what I got. They bring out fresh naan to order so that was nice as well as having a mix of Indian and Nepalese options.

Service takes forever and is extremely disorganized. Took 20 minutes to take our order and then brought us the appetizer twice while we waited for an hour for our entrees. They need more staff, or ones who know how to keep the kitchen organized, anyway.

I went on a Friday night and used a 'group coupon'. They were kind of slow, although we ended up having a huge group order before us. The indian dishes we got were good, not too spicy. The special bread basket had a large assortment. They gladly wrapped up our leftovers for us.

Terrible food, slow service, even worse disregard for customer satisfaction. Just came from a terrible experience at Yak & Yeti. My husband and I love Indian (and Nepali) food, and even cook it well ourselves, so were looking forward to trying Y&Y after it was voted "Best Indian Food" in the Somerville Scout. BIG mistake. We ordered the steamed chicken momos for an appetizer--they took half an hour, and when they came out, they were dry, and the top of the momos was not even fully steamed, so the edges were hard and crunchy. I got the Lamb Palak and my husband the Palak Paneer. When the entrees came, the rice was regular white Uncle Ben's, not basmati at all. The meals themselves tasted so strongly burnt, that we couldn't even eat them. I can't remember the last time I sent a meal back--I hate to do it; it ruins your night out (either prolonging it with lots of hungry waiting for a 2nd choice, or leaving and having to find another restaurant). But this was awful. Even the peshwari naan was too thin, and was like a sweet cracker, rather than soft, foldable, bread. It shattered when I went to tear a piece. We spoke to the ?manager, and he offered to let us order something else, but we were done. Two bites was too much--I couldn't get the terrible taste out of my mouth. Then the bill came--and we were charged for every bit of crappy food! We spoke to the manager again, and he said they "didn't give discounts". Even the atmosphere was not good. The table was so low, it was at my bellybutton level (and I'm only 5'5"), so if I wanted to lean over to hold my husband's hand (it was date night, after all), I was crouched over. The plate was none too clean, and the music was loud enough to make conversation less-than-intimate. Just do yourself a favor and stay away. After being forced to pay for an inedible meal, we are notwat home eating scrambled eggs.

I poked my husband a million times and asked him why he has never taken me here. He got annoyed, and so off we went! We went for the buffet on a weekend. Now, this place will go down in history--as the first place that I've managed to not get sick (from overeating) when faced with mountains of Indian food. Yay! I'm an adult! I ate a little bit of almost everything, because I have very little self control when it comes to Indian food. Everything was super delicious. Every meat dish was fall-off-the-bone tender. The vegetables were perfect. I was completely and totally confused by some of the stuff at the beginning of the buffet, but I was too busy eating everything else to worry too much about it. But even though Indian food is the best thing ever, the real reason this place gets 5 stars is that the service was amaaaaaaaaaaazing (with at least that many a's). I don't even understand how they timed everything so perfectly. Our naan plate was never empty, and our water was constantly refilled. And when it was time to leave--the check magically appeared within 5 seconds of us wanting one. So should you come here? Yes. Is it authentic? Idunno. Like, I seriously suck at judging Indian food because it's all delicious. But the staff, ambiance, and everything makes this place worth a try!

Wandered over to Somerville on a random Wednesday night. Food was good and the price was right! Really enjoyed the decor.

Simply amazing. Possibly the best Indian food I've had. I really liked that they have a Nepali menu, as that's not something I've tried before. I got the Chicken Mo-Mo from the Nepali appetizers and was stunned at how juicy and how savory they were. We had a small snafu where our Naan order didn't come out very quickly, but they recognized this without us having to say anything, and then gave us an extra order of Tikka Masala for free when the bread actually came out. All without any prompting on our part. In addition, they give you some delicious fried vegetable thingy at the start of the meal. Not sure what it was, but it was a nice little bonus.
