Lovely place, mediocre food. The ambiance is wonderful and we had a great waiter and the food was served quickly. Unfortunately the crispy cauliflower was not crispy, it was cold and soggy. Their dish is a knock-off of Gobi 65 which is a fantastic dish but their version was bland and tasteless, not to mention cold and soggy. The avocado raita was delicious but the mains were mediocre, not hot and certainly not modern or good. I had Chicken Korma which was very bitter for some unknown reason. The garlic naan was good - though the garlic on it was essentially raw so my dining companion couldn't eat it.
Such a nice restaurant, but the food is mediocre at best.

The waiters that we had (and we we had 3 different waiters) all sucked. One of them forgot our order even though he took it less than a min prior to coming back to ask us what we ordered. Another one was just really clumsy in the way he would respond to our questions; he was really lackluster and disengaged. And then the third, who we thought was the boss, was a combination of both those two waiters combined. Forgetful and lackluster.

Let me to the food. They didn’t have like half of the menu available and we were dining on a Wednesday night. Who runs out of chicken on a Wednesdays? We ultimately ordered the Tika Marsala & the pepper goat marsala. They didn’t even come out hot nor were they even flavorful.

Ambiance wise, they’ve gotta switch up the playlist or hire a damn DJ. The transitions from 70s pop to native music was so weird and random. AND the music should not have been that loud considering there were only like 3 dining parties in the entire room. Maybe the chefs were jamming in the background but the playlist sucked.

All in all, we won’t be returning. Save your coins and find another spot people.

One of the few good options in Westfield town for authentic Indian cuisine. We tried the Sag Paneer, Dal Makhani and Crispy Gobi along with Tandoor Roti. Really liked the meal. Recommended for Indian cuisine if you are in the Westfield area.

Very good food but it is a very regular Indian restaurant. Nothing close to fine dining and holding $25 on credit card for table booking set wrong expectations. Of the 20 odd tables, only one other than us was occupied on the day.

I will go again but surely not to celebrate an occasion. They have no drinks, not even mock tails. Just good and well prepared food …offers nothing else

Food was delicious! Waitstaff was very helpful in helping us decide what to select. This place is BYOB which is always nice when you can have your favorite bottle of wine with incredible food. The garlic Nan is by far the best!!! I have been telling all my friends to go and experience this place. We will definitely be returning for another date night.

Fantastic! Hadn’t been there in almost two years (covid) but take out fairly often and my son turning 9 wanted to go for his birthday. Booked outdoor seating but it was unexpectedly cold (they said town has barred them from having heaters on the sidewalk). We were uncomfortable but they didn’t have anything available inside. The second someone cancelled and a table opened up they moved us right inside and gave us a piping hot dish of lentils on the house to warm us up. Owners are so nice and ours kids loved them too. Food is always excellent. Restaurant itself gorgeous. Service always right on.

The owner is the best. Slight concern at the door but he more than made up for it. That says a lot and goes a long way. He told me the food would be great and it did not disappoint. Great food, great service and great night. Can’t wait to go back!

Wonderful experience and food, as usual. When the waiter forgot our appetizer but included it on the bill, the owner not only took the appetizer off the bill, but insisted on making the appetizer and having us take it home, without charge, of course. Total classy move, and I’m such a fan.

The waiter made us order everything in one go so we felt pressured to order quickly. And once the food came out it was VERY bland. We took most of it home and had to refresh it up ourselves. The tables were small and they served the food in very wide bowls that had very little quantity so it left us no room on the table

Please not that we dined outside due to the capacity restrictions during Covid-19, so noise levels and ambiance are not true evaluations.
We were seated 25 minutes after our reservation time. From then on however, everything was fine. They have a good selection of traditional preparations but also some modern takes on several items. The goat cheese stuffed naan was delicious as were the cheese/jalapeno samosas. Lamb saag and goat masala both strong choices for main courses as well. Service during the meal was very good and attentive. Looking forward to our next meal there.

Really great to be able to get out if the house and enjoy the 'spice'. Samosas and crispy cauliflower are definitely the way to start.
