Wow! The food here is amazing and easily worthy of a 5 star rating.

I've never been a huge fan of Indian food, but I see now that's because I've never actually had good Indian food. This is my new baseline for excellent Indian food.

Start with some naan or any of their tandoori breads. The garlic jalapeno is amazing and I could eat around 30 of these, though you'll likely just want 1.

We ordered a few items and shared them which is the way to go. Want an easy first-timer introduction to Indian food? Then try the Chicken Tikka Masala, you can't go wrong here.

Another great option is the Chicken Vindaloo (or get the Lamb version if you prefer) which is tender chicken chunks, potatoes, in a brown curry sauce.

I also love the Mix Grill which gives you some tandoori cooked chicken, lamb, and shrimp on a hot skillet with cooked onions (fajita style). Yum. I don't normally dig on lamb but I'll make an exception for this dish.

Get a side of rice with whatever you order and enjoy some Indian bliss. For dessert, try their chocolate gingerbread ice cream. Wow. As our waiter puts it, "it's like Christmas in your mouth". Indeed it is.

This is a great lunch or dinner option on weekdays. On weekends it can get really busy and the small kitchen can't keep up with demand so expect to wait.
