The menu of Indian cuisine under the direction of the popular chef is wonderful here. Invite your colleagues with you and enjoy mouthwatering paneer, rogan josh and cheese naans. Ordering good yogurt is what a number of visitors advise. Try delicious mango lassi.

Food was okay. They only had paper plates and plastic forks and knives. Ambience needs work.
The food here is not the issue, which always annoys me when I see Yelpers write that because we often come here to this app to learn about a restaurant's dishes and ambiance; however, I do feel people should be warned. I came here with a large group (9 of us) about a week ago. Of those 9, two were my partner's elderly grandparents who frequent the restaurant (we're from out of town and this was our first experience here). The ambiance is poor and the service was awful. In total, my party ordered 3 $4 glasses of the house Pinot Noir ($12 on alcohol, in total). My partner's grandfather paid the bill in private (a lovely man, but he is 83 years old and appears as such as he has difficulty hearing and whatnot), only to find out when looking at the receipt later that they had charged us $63 dollars for the Pinot noir and added an extra $14 charge for an unexplained glass of Chardonnay (which no one had ordered?!?). Therefore, almost an additional $70 had been added to the bill in "error" (taking into account the actual $12 we did spend on 3 glasses of cheap wine)- or, so they claimed it was an error when we called. Seemed clear to me that it was a case of taking advantage of a kind older man paying for a large group. What's more, after calling and confronting the staff, we were told to wait for a call back (didn't happen) and then to call the next day and speak to the manager. They changed their story multiple times (claimed it was a new system, said they punched in numbers wrong, etc.) and ultimately only gave us the $65 back in cash. WHAT TYPE OF SERVICE IS THAT?! At the very least, I was expecting a total refund of the bill or maybe a free dinner voucher for his trouble. But no, just an arduous experience attempting to get back the money they maliciously stole from us. Extremely disappointing. Not sure if this was an isolated incident, but if you go here, be weary to check & then double check your bill.
Excellent place for delicious indian food, good service and great prices other places cannot compare this is now my go to for indian food.
