My friend recommended this place to me and it did not disappoint! The wait staff was friendly and attentive and were happy to... make food suggestions. Our three guests had never had Indian Food before - this was their first experience - and they absolutelyloved it. We all enjoyed the flavors of the dishes. The naan was so fresh and yummy and I was able to box it up for lunch thenext day with my leftovers - so good! However, my FAVORITE part of the night was the cocktails! Affordable, unique, anddelicious! I know where we are going the next time I am craving Indian! Read more

The food was really great! Our waiter gave great recommendations on which foods to get. The food was fresh and came out in a... timely manner. The drinks were also really good and fresh. The place was really cozy and was a lot of space. For my first timeeating at an Indian Restaurant, I had such a great experience! Read more

Only the chicken was good. Rest of it was bland. Service needs to be improved. We had to keep reminding about the food that is... not brought to us about 4 times. It was still forgotten so we just didn’t ask again. When requesting the check, we told themnot to bills us for items not brought and then they gave us those packed without charge, but the mood was killed. We also had tokeep looking for someone to attend us, like hey I want salt but I have stand and look around to see if anyone is there. Same forthe check. Read more


Good food with really chic interior decor. The quantity is generous and a great value especially at lunch time. I ordered the... non veg combo and it tasted like home cooking. My only feedback was the lack of welcome. I was there alone. The manager informedme that they were closing soon so I ordered right away. I sat at the front and tried to engage him in short conversation. Heresponded with one word answers (if that) and turned away. Warmth and communication is so important to me when having arestaurant experience. So while I did enjoy the food, this manager failed to earn my loyalty and ongoing business. Read more

Yummy yummy food! I'd heard a lot about this place and glad that we found time to squeeze this visit in. Reserved a table since... it was Sunday but it wasn't needed as they had quite a few open tables. We were seated immediately and the order was taken superquickly. I primarily went there for the Benares Kachori and Kolhapuri Misal. The Misal was fabulous and the bread was supertasty. The Kachori was thin but yum. We got the prix fixe vegetarian platter. All the curries were flavorful and onpoint. Knocking off a star for the lack of ambience in terms of bad music choice and extremely loud cutlery noise whileclearing tables and around the kitchen. They had a wonderful percussion artist while we were there but couldn't hear a thing asthere was blaring music in the background. If you're someone who doesn't mind music choices, go here and taste that Misal Pav!! Read more
