We were visiting Orlando/Daytona in FL and had craving for south Indian food. Found this on HappyCow search and drove there ... only to found this placed locked with chains and empty inside. Just want to ensure that others don't waste their time ...

Place was ok, I guess. More like a diner than an actual restaurant. The food was ok, I guess. The place was not all that nice.

Indian diner

The staff were friendly, but the interior and menu were not impressive. They lost their liquor license and do not have any wine or beer. The menu was 50 ways to cook lentils... there was no variety. Food was served on metal trays, like circa 1950 tv dinner. My beau and I were the only white patrons. We asked for mild and it was no where near mild. I suffered intestinal distress later that evening.

Pros: All vegetarian with vegan options, Free parking
Cons: No variety , Spicy food, No beer/wine

I ordered the Onion Rava Masala Dosa and absolutely loved it! It had a great flavor and the accompanying curries and sambar were fabulous.

Pros: Taste, Decor
Cons: Lacking a bit in customer service

Spicy and good

Service here was great. Friendly, smiling faces were eager to greet my boyfriend and me. The dishes are far spicier than I am used to, as I frequent Bombay Cafe (across the street from Woodlands on OBT) and their food is milder with a nice kick. We ordered the $12+ "sampler" special which felt like a rip-off. Other veg. Indian joints would be charging $7 for this exact amount of food. Maybe it is more expensive because it's a large venue & right by the Florida Mall. :)

Pros: Delicious, All Veg, Friendly staff
Cons: Very spicy
