I have visited this place twice, both disappointing, the second time hoping the first was just a one off. I had the butter chicken and curry chicken. The chicken was dry, cold and hard. The sauce was watery and diluted, and the nan was too dry and crusty. I can deal with the atmosphere if the service and food is good, but this restaurant was an overall disappointment in all 3 categories.

I've been reading other reviews here saying that a smile will get you better service - a better restaurant will be more concerned with getting a smile on YOUR face. Offering ok food - at best, and a lousy attitude.

This joint receives way too much hype. I finally gave in and went for some take out (I live in the neighborhood) and brought it home, ready to enjoy. It was dry and unappetizing and crusty. I can't point out anything redeeming what-so-ever.

I am typing this review in between bites; just got the white meat combo and it's fantastic...it has the right balance of heat and spiciness + it's not swimming in a pool of oil. I cannot wait to go back and try their other dishes. It is great food at a very reasonable price.

My restaurant of choice for.... hell, for everything. I've travelled an hour to get here just because I wanted to go to this place. I love the value and the food. 7 dollars for a tremendous meal (1/3 of which is going home with me.) The food is excellent. When ordering, the service varies heavily. I've seen people (who I personally thought were idiots) have requests blatantly refused. The women behind the counter can be a bit offputting if they don't know you, recognize your face, or like your smile. Your service is basically what you put in. If you go "Now... can I get 3 pieces of chicken and four appetizers...you know... instead... and uh...a desert too..." you're going to get an awkward glare. Just smile, order normally, and enjoy some really good food. Expect to sweat a lot though. It's part of the atmosphere.

I am Indian and a big fan of autheticity in taste. PTH may lack ambiance and grace, but it is top notch in authenticity. Their non vegetarian food tastes like back home - specially the Seekh Kababs made of minced flavored chiken and lamb. Just some Kababs and nan hot out of the tandoor does the trick for me every time. The other veg and non veg curries are good also. The food is not very oily, like it is in many indian restaurants. Granted, the service leaves much to be desired, but even that cursory attitude brings a taste of home - its nothing personal, just that the servers are harried at peak lunch time. Enjoy.

A nice smile to the woman who always works the counter goes a long way (there are usually 2 women there in the day, they both respond well to a smile and friendly face). My boyfriend and I love the place, but he always gets different service than me, I think it's because I'm genuinely happy to see them and eat the food). The food is inconsistently good. some days it's phenominal, and others it's just really good. You end up eating a lot, so always end you meal with a chai to help with digestion.
