  • “Out of all the indian restaurants in the les/east vill area i would say this one is one of the better ones. Not saying best, but better than the others. The wala platter consists of a lot which is good when sharing with others. It comes with salmon, shrimp kabob, chicken tikka, chicken malai, and type of chicken and a piece of lamb. The chicken biryani is good although i think it should come with more raita and could be a little spicier. I'll be willing to try more from here. Recent Update 11/13/14: I think the chef of this place may have changed. Im used to ordering the same stuff every time and enjoying it usually but recently I've notice the quality of the food has gone down and portions have gotten much smaller. Everything seems to be lacking flavor and spice its just not what it use to be. The Wala platter has changed completely not the same one I fell in love with - that's for sure!”

This Indian is very fresh with complex flavors. 2 entrees can easily be shared between 2 people and you'll have leftovers. Recommend: Bangan Bharta, Aloo Gobi, Aloo Masala Roll, Butter Naan”

  • “We placed an order for Chicken Saag - I made a mistake and just ordered Saag by mistake. We got the food quickly and upon noticing I called the restaurant. I explained to the manager what happened and said I would pay the difference if I could get Chicken Saag delivered. He was amazing and said we will just send you the Chicken Saag. I did not eat any of the Saag and repackaged it to give to the delivery person so that they would not think I was trying to scam them or anything. The delivery person showed up quickly with our Chicken Saag - I went to give him back the original order and he said - please do not worry it is yours. I also went to tip him because of the extra tip and he said no no you don't have to tip again. AMAZING and I forced the additional tip on him. Amazing customer service will get a repeat customer and the food was really really good as well!!!”
