Worst place on the earth!! – The worst place I have ever been too. Horrible food and unprofessional people. The service was awful.
Being a physician, I went there couple of times in the drug rep conferences and didn't have better experience myself, but my family wanted to try a new indian restaurant, and they convinced me to take them to this horrible place.
In the restaurant, we ordered Paneer Makhani, which was nothing but the bowl full of Paneers with almost no gravy, and that was mediocre quality of course. To add to that, they served us rotis which were warmed up from the previously left over food (I was sure about that!). After we got our food served, the waitress never came to ask us how the food was, and if we wanted anything else. I had to get up and get water myself twice.
After we are done with dinner, I simply brought that up to the cashier while paying, and here comes the worst part. Instead of apologizing and promising us to improve their food and service, he started arguing with us and told us IF YOU DON'T LIKE THE FOOD AND SERVICE THEN DON'T COME HERE NEXT TIME. I couldn;t believe this. Of course I was not going to come there in the future, but this is not the way you take feed back from the customers. They behaved as if they never cared about their customers. I told them, look as a physician we conduct many conferences in the restaurants, and this could affect them a lot if they continued to serve customers like this. He says, I don't care. Many physicians come here. That's it. I walked out of that place and decided not to go there in the future. I am going to ask all my physician friends to cancel their conferences in that restaurant.
WORST SERVICE, BAD LANGUAGE – I have never had a worse service in a restaurant. I have been here 2 times, and both times the service was aweful. There was hair in my food and they told me it was my hair.....what a pathetic way to justify their mistake........looks like they write their own damn reviews on websites to make ppl to here. STAY AWAY FROM THIS RESTAURANT!!!!!
Ate there last Saturday – I had the Shrimp Curry and it was soooo good, I can't wait to go back and try everything else, my server was so sweet and even though he handled the whole dining room by himself, he was smiling and efficient.
Good food, tad pricy – Went with a friend recently. Neither of us were that hungry so we split 2 entrees: a spinnach & cheese (Paneer) plus a chicken entree. Both were very tasty. I haven't had Indian this tasty in quite some time.
I'm not one who cares much for "authentic" cuisine. Good food is good food, and this was good food.
The downsides were: 1) portions somewhat small so probably won't fill you up if you're really hungry and 2) somewhat pricy for what you get.
bottom-line: I'll be going back again.
Worst indian food and expensive as well – Navigation system told me I had arrived, but it was difficult to find as the cafe/sign is hidden around the corner of the attached building. I ordered a mango lassi. The service was slow even though the place was vertually empty. The mango lassi was good (no ice in it, I like it that way). I ordered butter chicken and nan.The food arrived with no rice. I had to order the rice as a separate item. The nan was good (standard) but would have been excellent if it had butter (butter nan). I have to agree with the other poster, this was the worst indian food I have ever tasted. The butter chicken did not seem to have any butter in it and basically tasted like pizza sauce with some spices in it (I believe they may have used actual pizza sauce instead of using fresh tomatoes). The keer (rice pudding) was overly sweet and overly garnished with whatever they garnish it with. The price for this horrible food was also expensive. Just over $28.
Could it be worse? – Having been to many Indian restaurants in the last 10 years, this is by far the worst and possibly the worst food I've ever tasted.
The food was nearly cold, the server was rude, the popadoms looked and tatsed more like tacos, the nan bread was so thin you could see through it and their "Jhalfrazi" was nothing more than tomato soup with a few spices and peppers in.
The prices are pretty typical for Indian food but considering the quality you get they are ridiculously overpriced. The bar is also overprices, $6.95 for a draght beer and $3.50 for a bottle.
I love Indian food and have never not finished a meal, but I couldn't even eat half of what I had it was so bad.
Good Vegetarian Selection – Finally, this restaurant made it to the West Side of Cleveland!
They have a great vegetarian selection, and their naan
bread is just wonderful. Overall, expect about $15 per person
for a decent dinner including bread and appetizer.
