Editorial review from Citysearch 2/14/2014

Nasty restaurant! Rude server/manager! Been here before and it was fine, but tonight on Valentine's Day - it was horrible! We ordered off of the menu and when the food that arrived did not match the description and we complained, the waiter yelled at us in the middle of the restaurant and actually said ""eat it if you want or leave!"" \r \r Never have we been so insulted at a restaurant! Totally ruined our Valentine's Day! We're definitely not ever returning to this restaurant! more

Took over an hour and a half, got here cold, and didn't provide rice! Terrible! more

Editorial review from Citysearch 7/10/2012

The staff here is so warm and friendly. I have been coming here for a few years but never more than once a month or so, sometimes not for several months. I wouldn't call myself a regular. That being said, the food is excellent, especially the paneer kashmiri. Our favorite waiter still remembers our 'regular' order, always brings my daughter a mango lassi and entertains her. He is so nice we always feel bad we don't go visit him more often. more

not the greatest, or the worst 2/15/2012

They have a pretty good buffet brunch, but I wouldn't really recommend for a dinner night out. The food is hit or miss at times. Sometimes it?s fab, and sometimes...not so much. more

Good food. 1/8/2012

I don't agree with that guy that said this was the worst place. As a matter of fact, I had a great experience. Every Indian place I've been to has their own taste. Something tells me that if this guy needed to type out his order he was a pain in.. I had a great meal. highly recommended more

WORST INDIAN RESTAURANT EVER!!! 11/6/2011

WORST INDIAN RESTAURANT I HAVE EVER HAD TO DEAL WITH!!!! Placed order through their online delivery system,I thought it was impossible to mess my order up since it was typed down and simple yet they still manged to. What Indian Restaurant serves you 2 currys and no rice? Instead of apologizing and attempting to remedy the situation, they were rude and antagonistic and ignored my phone calls and complaints. When I ask for them to come back to give me what I paid for he said it would take an additional 20- 30 minutes after I had already been waiting 45 min for my order in the first place. I had no interest in paying $40 and eating cold food so I asked for a refund and had to fight for it The delivery guy claims to have returned to my house but left after ""I didn't come out"" however he never rang my doorbell or even knocked on my door. I have 3 dogs that bark their heads off when anyone is nearby and they were silent. more

Good Buffet! 7/5/2011

When it comes to Indian food I am pretty picky. Three of us went to The happy hour buffet after a little shopping. I have to say, I was impressed with the variety offered for the money, the food selection was quite good. The d more

speedy, but expensive, especially since this is unrecognizable as indian food. I ordered the channa masala, which is a very standard indian dish - everyone does it, and it's hard to screw upl. what I got was an oily, salty, tasteless affair. The samosa was mediocre at best, and the paratha was dry and overly salty. as an indian person looking for the taste of home, I'm disappointed - $25 I'll never see again. more

Simply disgusting 1/25/2010

The customer service isn't that bad, I give it a 3 1/2 out of 5, But their food was horrid. My plate was supposed to be spicy, and the chile's were raw to an extent. It might have been a bit undercooked and it was not nicely set up on the plate. It didn't have much texture to it, and it wasn't delicious one bit. The utensils looked dirty and I honestly even felt a bit disgusted just by looking at everything. Restaurant rating: 0.2 out of 10 more

Messed Up Spice Concept 2/27/2009

I went there a couple of weeks ago and was extremely disappointed. The service was bad. Then, when I placed the order, asked for ""Spicy"". Guess what we got? Cons: Price, Raw Chilli Powder! more

Messed Up Spice Concept 2/26/2009

I went there a couple of weeks ago and was extremely disappointed. The service was bad. Then, when I placed the order, asked for "Spicy". Guess what we got? Spicy Samosa = Samosa with red chilli powder sprinkled on it!! Spicy Biriyani= Soggy Biriyani with the same chilli powder sprinkled..eek! The curries were colored with this same chilli powder in abundance. You can taste the raw chilli powder. I was praying I don't get sick from the food. Extremely Overpriced and Best Avoided! Pros: None Cons: Price, Raw Chilli Powder! more

Okay food, service is absent 1/27/2009

We went late afternoon/early evening during the holidays and had an extremely difficult time getting served. They clearly wanted us to choose the buffet and we had to ask the host, a waiter and finally the bus boy to bring us a menu. Food was just okay. They forgot to bring the drinks we ordered, never did bring water. No one waited on us after bringing the food and we had to ask another 3 times to get a bill. I frankly think they didn't want to be bothered with customers that day, preferring that we just help ourselves to the buffet and be done with it. I would not recommend. No idea how they stay in business on Colorado Blvd. near the Pasadena Playhouse with that kind of service. Pros: Location Cons: Oblivious to customer more

My new favorite Indian Restaurant 11/26/2008

I came here for dinner with a group of friends. There was about eight of us. They asked us to wait and our table was ready in a few minutes. Even though they were kinda busy our service was good. I loved the Chicken Korma and the cheese nan. We all enjoyed our dinner and they make the best mango martini. I am definitely going back. more
