Tomas P., who was among the first Yelpers to review the new spot on February 18th, said: “We went there two days after their opening and were very impressed with their food. Lots of choices and vegetarian options. The chicken curry was very smooth and creamy, and their rice very fluffy.”
And Matt M. said: “Got the shrimp appetizer, mulligatawny soup, mango chicken and south Indian garlic lamb. All great. I’ve tried most of the Indian places in the area and this is probably the best.”
