It is good to welcome a new establishment to the neighborhood, but this place does not quite hit the mark. (1) The food is surprisingly under seasoned, and I am not simply referring to it being hot or mild. I mean some of the dishes are quite bland, and others need a more complex flavor profile. Nothing was terrible, but nothing was very good either. (2) The service was friendly, but very slow—I think they may be understaffed. (3) The decor is odd and made up of clashing styles. The front bar is attractive, but the paint colors are a weird mismatch, and the sponge painted silvery sections look dated and tacky. The murals are nice, but they get lost in all the contrasting wall colors. The banquets look cheaply upholstered. The “wood” floors look cheap. They put up old and used looking wood paneling, which does not match the more contemporary look of most of the decor. (4) The place is incredibly loud, and all the exposed hard services make it very echoey. (5) The lighting needs to be redone. It shines uncomfortably in your eyes when seated and facing outward—they dim it a bit during dinner, which somewhat helped. (6)The serving dishes make no sense. Our entrees and appetizers all came out in small dishes, then our very tiny desserts were served in enormous serving dishes that covered the entire table. It was weird. (7) The cocktails need help. They are a offbeat mix of flavors that do not blend well together. (8) The price is expensive given the mediocre quality of the food, service, and ambience.

Our server disappeared at the end of our meal and we had to ask another staff member for the bill. We never saw the dessert menu. The bill took another 10 minutes to arrive as the staff member had asked our original server to give us the bill and our server forgot. Very disappointed with our experience. The food was pretty good although the fish was dry. The value was not there as they charged $11 for a mocktail and overall was quite pricy for the quality of the food and service we received.

We are vegetarians , so the food was much below my expectations. We had golgappas , the water lacked flavor , palak paneer & House dal both were not tasteful. The only thing we relished was Date kulfi. The front desk girl was very courteous , the server was very friendly , kitchen guys who were bringing food to our table were also very courteous. But we were disappointed with food. May be their non veg is better as I read in the reviews.

Creative Indian cuisine, nicely presented, in a casual but upscale environment, with friendly, helpful service. Our waiter was Michael and he added some fun to the meal. Portion sizes are not small, we found we had ordered too much; that's not such a bad problem, as we got to take home the extra and have a nice meal the next day. The minced lamb cone, the butter chicken, the chicken tikka and the spinach with cottage cheese (it's a common dish, I forget the name, but this incarnation was especially delicious) were all winners. So was my partner's mango lassi. We will definitely be back.

The service, well they gotta work out some kinks. The whole house needs to communicate with each other better. They ran out of food items and a house cocktail which seems like very poor planning. But I’m certain all will improve in time. The food is not to be missed and the house margaritas were very good. Our waiters and bartenders were attentive and engaging. It’s well worth every penny.

The presentation is fabulous. Service needs work, but it’s new (open less than 2 weeks). Food comes out in a haphazard order. Causal dining. Patience required. Food: Fish appetizer - decent. Lamb (keema/minced) decent/savory. Gol guppas- decent - interesting flavors. Butter chicken - savory, creamy sweet - good if you like it like that. Like that they brew their own beer in house. I’d go back, but not make a special trip.

Very few are recognizable from the saags and marsalas that most restaurants offer. All are tasty. So Far. I need to go back to taste more dishes but the only lament is that the coconut shrimp dish has more cream sauce than shrimp by about half; a better balance would work well. But it is a treat, and as a bonus, they brew their own beer.
