Very accessible menu for those who aren't fully acquainted with Indian food. We had a few questions and our server was very knowledgeable about the cooking process."

And Andrew S. wrote, "I ordered the chicken tikka and lamb curry. Both dishes were very tasty. Meat was extremely tender and the flavors were quite good."
