My friends and I stumbled upon this restaurant for lunch and were so glad we did. The place wasn't crowded at all and we got a substantial amount of food with the lunch special. I can't tell you what was on the list but the food just kept coming out and everything was delicious. The only thing we didn't care for was the mixed salad, but come on, who eats salad? Highly recommend.

This restaurant has a good atmosphere, it is always busy, and has some excellent dishes such as the tandoori. There is also a huge selection of food and drinks. I would recommend a great new Indian beer (not on the menu), Himalayan Blue.
