Casual restaurant focusing on Northwest Indian fare including clay-oven & vegetarian specialties.- Google

My wife and I got garlic naan, cheese naan, lamb korma, and keema mutter. All dishes are available spicy or mild. Halal meat. Nothing survived. I could not recommend or praise this place enough. The decor was pretty lively. The only negative aspect if there was one to be found was one of the TVs was fed by satellite and tiling a little. This is easily one of my favorite restaurants.

Today was our 2nd time visiting this restaurant. Our 1st time ever eating Indian food was also here at the suggestion of our oldest daughter a couple months ago, where we ordered off the menu. Today, we ate from the buffet. Food was wonderful both times. As the name advertises, all dishes were very flavorful. The owner is always very nice; and, patient as he accommodates all my questions. :) My husband, who is a meat and potatoes man from Texas, enjoys the food and commented on several dishes. Our youngest, who can be a picky eater, loves the butter chicken. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you visit, you must try the butter chicken and cashew chicken (can't remember the Indian name for the latter).

Worst Indian food ever. Messed up my order. They did not know who ordered what. Never going back! Unclean dishes. EAT AT YOUR OWN RISK!

This was our first time eating here and initially the place looked ok not great but nice enough. The food looked very nice and there was a good selection. We tried a variety of dishes and when we got back to the table we established quickly that the food was all luke warm to say the least it had been placed on top of cling film and the tray beneath it seemed to have water in it I suppose to cause steam to keep it warm! It did not work very well. The food itself was flavorful albeit not very warm. The final straw that totally ruined the meal was when I discovered a long black hair in my food!! I called the manager over who initially stated he did not see a hair so I put it on a fork and showed it to him again but all he kept saying was I do not know how that happened as they wear hair nets, I assured him it was not mine as I have a bald head and my wife has blonde hair!!! He apologized again and only charged us for one lunch but I will not be returning.
