  • Got takeout with great anticipation based on all of the review accolades. Terrible food. Watery poorly seasoned sauces in pools around dry overcooked meat. Save yourself the trip.
  • Best Indian food and ambience..bit pricy though. .
  • Overhyped. Poor service. Won't be back. Better chicken tika masala in our hometown for half the price & way friendlier service!
  • Kulfi , pistachio dessert
  • Best Indian food in Berkeley.
  • The tasting menu is a great choice. So much variety of delicious food!
  • If youre a vegetarian, this place is going to thrill you. Ditto if youre a meat eater. And the kitchen is happy to make adjustments for vegans, so everyone wins.
  • I have stopped ordering samosas after my travels in Indiastateside, they are often tough and taste like they were fried two days ago. But the two versions here got me back on the samosa train.
  • Vegetarians will want to try the meaty portobello mushrooms. I will admit I was skeptical about portobello mushrooms used in an Indian context, but it was awesome.
  • I will NOT be going back. Overpriced for the portion and there was something floating in all three of our water glasses.
  • Restaurant looks fancy but food was disappointing. Not enough salt in anything. Biriani just has a lot of cashew and raisins but there was no masala.
  • Great dinner!! Ask for the Badal Jaam... Yummy...
  • Get a big King Fisher!
  • The finest Indian food in the Bay Area. A truly special dining experience.
  • Hyderabad chicken, green fish curry and cashew naan, all superb
  • The eggplant (Lucknow) and okra (Tamil Nadu) are excellent, flavorful vegetarian options. And the dal.
  • Not too many vegetarian options.
  • strongly suggest the dinner specials. Comes with a samosa, your entre with rice, naan, and fixings. By far the best Indian restaurant I have ever been too. Sooooo much flavor !
  • Malabar chicken curry is fabulous. Have with Seghesio zin.
  • the sambhar, currently on the menu, is outstanding!
