First time here. We had a group of 8 for lunch on a Sunday. Staff was friendly, restaurant has a good energy, ambiance and is clean. Food service timing was a little off. It took around 25-30 minutes to get our appetizers, as the restaurant had just opened. Recommend to order early. Also would be great to ask if anyone wants chai or dessert. Portions are good sized and food is yummy. Spice (heat) level is low, very mild. If you eat south Asian food regularly, you can go with extra spice. Would love to return!

This was my first time dining here. It did not disappoint. I will definitely be back! The steak was well seasoned and cooked to perfection. I love the crispy onions they placed on top. The Mac and cheese and Brussels sprouts were a great addition to the steak. I can’t wait to come back!
