This is by far the worst Indian restaurant we've tried in the Denver area, or anywhere -- San Francisco, Santa Fe, New York, London. We went for dinner on a Saturday night. The food was mediocre at best -- my wife's vegetarian thali sampler was served at barely even room temperature, leading us to suspect it was leftovers from the lunch buffet. My chicken vindaloo was tolerable, but very mild -- the curry sauce was thick, but far from ""hot,"" despite the menu description. And the chicken did not seem to have been cooked in the sauce, but rather to be pre-cooked chunks added later. While this dish was served a bit warmer than room temperature, it was far from hot temperaturewise, too. It also was overpriced at $12.95 for quite a small portion.\r
The ambience leaves a lot to be desired, as well. The dining room is large, noisy and harshly lit, with no background music that we could hear. Worse, my wife, who is allergic, began to suffer all the symptoms of being around a cat. We first assumed someone seated near us must have a cat at home, but even after the party next to us left, this problem grew worse throughout the meal, so much so that she had to go outside while I waited (and waited) for the check. \r
But the worst aspect of our evening here was the service. First off, there was no host/hostess; we were waved to a table from across the room by a harried waiter. OK, no big deal, maybe. And the casually tossed-down silverware (forks upside down, etc.) would have been acceptable in a diner, but this is a fairly pricey place. And three times -- THREE TIMES -- servers asked us for our orders, then turned away to talk to co-workers before we could even respond. Then, at the end of the meal, I was left waiting 10 minutes or more for the check, which came to $50 for two, with only one drink apiece. \r
Needless to say, we will not be returning.
Cons: Terrible service, ambience lacking, mediocre food.
