"Stumbled upon this place once, and then saw it again in OpenTable and knew that I had to write this review. This is hands down our favorite Indian food restaurant in the Valley. The family that owns it has been here for a long time and keeps it traditional. They also have some Pakistani dishes on the menu and everything is full of flavor and fresh. The wine list isn't too extensive, but the prices for a bottle are VERY good. Eat here if you want to have some awesome Indian food. Great spice and flavor profiles."
