Don't let the strip mall exterior fool you, this is among the standard setters for local Indian meals! The menu has a specific veggie section with vegan options and a staff that won't look at you sideways if you are vegan. The staff here are all around great they are friendly, inviting and hospitable. When you step in you are enveloped in the delicious smell of lentils and spice, it makes my mouth water instantly!
This spot primarily serves a takeout crowd and thus it almost always looks empty but they do a steady business of takeout and deliver which is testament to the quality of the food. For those who dine in the staff generally bend over backwards to keep customers happy. They work hard and it shows and it is also clear they are deeply appreciative when this effort is recognized by customers. The place is small so although separated by a divider your food is being prepared only a few steps away. On top of the great food and great service the food is a real bargain for what you get. At about $10 a head with tip we usually end up with 2 meals worth of leftovers for the next day. you pay fast food prices to get high end restaurant quality.
Default spice level here is very very mild so be sure and ask for "medium spicy" or hot if you like classic Indian flavor. Be sure and try the dal mahkni and some onion naan
Cons: strip mall location
