Mediocre in my opinion. I don't think Clay Oven just down the street is any worse. We ordered the Chicken Makni and the Aloo Gobi. The Makni was okay; typical in your Indian restaurants. No differentiator. Potatoes in the Aloo Gobi were undercooked to my liking. Felt like it was a tomato based sauce - maybe a little too tomatoey; feel like I've had better at some buffets. The garlic naan was extremely buttery and was not crispy.

Excellent Indian food. The food is flavorful with good spice. I love it as take out or dining in. The owner is so sweet and always comes around to make sure everything is okay. They also have a great ginger tea that yummy after a great meal.

I love the place. It's a little pricey but I when there twice and had a great time both times. The gosht madras was my favorite, but the gosht vindaloo was pretty good too. And their rotis bread basket is definitively the way to go if you like naans.

Chicken jalfrezzi and roti's rogan josh with garlic naan were just perfect! Now you know one more guilty pleasure of mine. :)

Another Indian place that I love. They used to be on Haight St. I have not yet tried their new location in West Portal, but I will. I was a regular at their Haight St. location. I like everything. Love the chai tea as well.

I haven't been here in about 9 months and I just confirmed I won't be back for another 9 months if ever. Here lies the problem of ordering take out from this place. About 9 months ago I order some take out, very simple an order of the fish and a veggie dish, when they tell you 1 hour, it's actually 1 1/2 hours. As for today, I order food around 5:10 and got there about 5:45, they told me 30 minutes. I left after 6:30 with my order. There were a few more people who waited unhappily for their take out. I was offered a free dish for the wait. I thought about for all of half a second, I didn't want to be stuck there waiting for another 30 minutes for a free dish. Hell No. I opt to take my food and leave. The naan I brought home wasn't fully cook and had a doughy taste. as was the aloo gobi (the cauliflower is completely crisp as if only just dumped into the curry and pulled out). I will never order the assorted appetizers ever again, that was horrible. The vegetable pakoras were a bit on the burnt side and wasn't even close to being authentic in any way . I'm seriously disappointed today with the food tonight. The tandoori murgh was very spicy (which I like but my daughter couldn't eat) was the only dish that was decent. I've never had problems with the food when I eat there, but take out is a nightmare.
