Awesome food. Service was very good for the first half of the meal. In the second half, it was horrible. Entire serving staff seemed to singularly focus on a group that seemed to know the chef or something. We were made to wait 15 minutes to get just a piece of bread, another 10 mins to clear the table, another 10 minutes to get the check, another 10 mins to get our check etc. Disappointed in the end.

Best brunch I've had in a very very long time.
Once the secret is out this place will be packed.
Different and delicious.

The food was truly incredible; we left stuffed and happy and mourning the fact that we didn't leave room for dessert.

Food and ambience was good, but terrible service. The server didn't care to check in on us at all during the course of our meal (didn't care to refill our waters even)

August 1 Five spinach naan is highly recommended! Actually spinach is baked in between the sheets of dough. The sauces that come with every dish are savory but don’t over power any of the main pieces.

The taste of the food was outstanding and the service was top notch with 50% of tables occupied. As the food variety is less, I don’t find a reason to visit again though.

Best India influenced food I've ever had. Friendly informed service. Quiet enough for conversation, but we were 4 people at a corner table. Interesting well constructed cocktails.
