If you’re craving food with a little bit more spice to it, you have to try this place. The service is impeccable. The menu features traditional Indian cuisine, a nice selection of wines, and yummy cocktails. It’s so popular the restaurant had to move from the tiny hole in the wall they occupied for years to accommodate the crowds. Now they are located in a much larger location on Florida Avenue. They are still very busy, and close every day from 3 pm-6 pm. If you have to wait for your table take a stroll around the tree lined street with Victorian lamp posts. The tile murals on the walls in the area make an excellent backdrop for photos!
