    Excellent food, specials are particularly great

    The food is really good. Though it is clearly a "dive" / cafe without much ambience (and none intended - so it's not a failure on part of the establishment), the food is on par with the best restaurants in the city. The daily specials are really good - don't be put off by the items lying on display on the buffet - they are as fresh as anything you would order from the menu. My office is right here, so I order a lot, come in at lunch every so often, and take food home if working late - so I've gone through most things on their menu. A solid place, though they could be a bit more generous with their portions.

    changed recipes

    I'm tasting less salt than before which is a big plus for me. Tikka masala appears to be all white meat now with more of a tomato flavor. Even the breads taste better than before.

    Great food, why is service so lousy?

    I keep coming back as it's really the only Indian near my office, but the service really leaves a lot to be desired. Miserly portions, misplaced orders, a la carte options that get substituted without asking your permission, and worst of all, no apologies or attempts to rectify the situation. If you know exactly what you want, and can point to it - it's great. Basically, don't expect a fine dining experience, recognize what it is and you'll enjoy.

    Great food - New Management is not

    I absolutely love this hole in the wall restaurant and food is great and quick but the new management is miserable and uncourteous. I've gone there for the past two years twice a week for lunch but the new management is just so obnoxious and unhappy and rude that I will not go anymore. It is a shame. I wish the old management would come back.

    Great hole in the wall find

    The food quality is amazing. Not bland, individualized, with options to vary spice even on the standard options from the counter. So it solves the basic problem of fast food options of generic vs customized offerings. Don't go expecting a gourmet dining experience in ambience. It's a tiny space, not meant for fine dining. If you don't expect that you won't be disappointed. The actual food, though, is worthy of any upscale restaurant, so I would imagine this is a great option for take-out or catering to home dinner parties. The daily specials are particularly appealing (the a la carte options are many but I would recommend trying the specials as they are quite unique, unlike regular Indian menu fare).

    Food is amazing and specials are awesome

    It's a small place, you'd be forgiven for thinking it's a hole in the wall. But, if you're lucky enough to take a chance on it, you won't be disappointed! I went once on an off day as it is near my office, and have been a regular since. THe specials are amazing (Fish curry, chicken cilantro, potato stew, chick peas, etc) but vary by day. The menu a la carte is also very good. I don't know my way around Indian food too well, so can't compare authenticity etc - but can tell you that it satisfied me, and I am difficult to please!

    Great food, ok atmosphere

    Great addition to the neighborhood. And thankfully, the service and portions are better than the other two in the chain. Friday specials are the best (cilantro chicken, potato aloo dum). But weekend food is suspiciously the same as Friday specials, and dry and crusty - so avoid that - seems like they just put it in the fridge overnight. This is a tiny place - so don't expect to sit if you go during the lunch rush. Look on it as a quick place to pick up great food, and you won't be disappionted.
