Delivery was fast; naan tasted great. The food tasted like nothing. I asked for spicy, but it tasted like buttery nothing.

Blandest, worst indian food I've ever eaten. I threw away my leftovers. I had chicken tikka masala and saag paneer.

Very quick delivery and great naan, but the food was really bland. I asked for medium spicy and I think they just added more salt. Overwhelmingly salty, not much other flavor.

Very average food. I got the chicken tikka masala lunch special. The rice was bland. The chicken Left something to be desired. The naan was probably the best part. The only redeeming factor is that it's just so cheap. This is probably the only meal that I've been able to get for about $10 including tax and tip. You get what you pay for in this case...

Quoted order delivery time was 25-40 minutes. Arrived in a little over an hour. Food was hot and an attempt was made to package well so sauces and soups did not spill. Ordered the prix fixe menu and had soup, dal makhani, and rice pudding. Ordered meat samosa, garlic naan, chana chaat salad additionally. The prix fixe menu portions were for a single person. Soup was about 6-8 oz, dal was about 8-12 oz , and rice pudding was about 4 oz. Two small samosa came in the order. Full piece of naan. Chana chaat salad was generous portion that two people could probably share. Overall, food was temp appropriate. The chana chaat salad was my favorite and was fresh and flavorful. The chickpea salad had julienned fresh carrots, cucumbers, and tomatoes along with cilantro and a nice aromatic and flavorful vinagerette. The samosa meat filling was very dry and fell everywhere when I tried to eat it. The samber soup was aromatic and comforting on the rainy day it was delivered. The dal makhani was just very average if that. I did not find it very seasoned and the beans were a bit soft. I could almost taste a chicken broth flavor which was odd. I could also taste chopped garlic and ginger pieces that were not soft or cooked through. I like garlic and ginger so it was not the worst for me. Overall, just a very average experience. Would maybe give another try and get a different dish to see if I can be swayed in a more positive direction. Not sure I would order delivery though given the extended delivery time.

Really bland food- there were minimal spices on the main dish as well as the vegetable sides. Not impressed.

Problem: I specifically wrote NOTHING TOO SPICY and almost everything I ordered was either too spicy for me to eat or borderline too spicy. I should say i'm extremely sensitive to spicy food, but i eat indian food all the time and am usually fine with dishes like tandooris and mullitgawny soup. I wonder if they misunderstood my instructions and spiced it up instead. Anyhow, other than that, i ordered a number of items, all of which were tasty (best i could tell!) and were delivered hot, with all accompaniments, all nicely wrapped, and arrived promptly.

Food tasted good, delivery was on time, but they hardly give you any rice. Definitely not enough to eat an entire entree.

Have ordered many times from this restaurant. Although food is B/B+, service is C or C- and on several occasions, they missed one part of my order but sent me another extra thing without discussing with me. Normal thing would be to call to let me know if they didn't have anything that i had order and if they can switch it with something else. But they dont bother to let you know and you find out when you open the bag.
