Not Authentic Indian

The service was fast and the environment was interesting. The food was not good. I order the Lamb Vindaloo, which is one of my favorite Indian dishes. The Lamb was dry and there were two potatoes in the whole dish. It was similar to fast food. I did enjoy the garlic naan. My wife liked her Electric Paneer. It might of just been an off day for the Vindaloo

Oh horrors of horrors

I know a thing or two about punjabi food...forget that...I know a thing or two about food and I just threw away $30 worth of food from here. The vindaloo tasted like they chucked a can of tomato sauce on burnt fish and potatoes that were raw and the outsides were burnt. The rice was cold and stale...AND if even possible...the paneer naan tasted like like burnt bread with rotten cheese. How cruel to have the only i... view more

first time was a success!

great food, and the waiter was so nice to help us first-timers who didn't have a clue. the garlic bread and yogurt dip was delish, and the lamb with rice was enough for us 2 girls to share. very good prices, relaxing environment.

Cultural Discrimination in an Indian Restaurant

My boyfriend and I come to this restaurant every so often for the past 3 years. Each time we come here, the place is packed (usually on weekends). However, we decided to go last Tuesday night since we were in the area and felt like eating Indian food. When we got there (around 7:30), the restaurant was quite empty (only 2 tables were occupied). We first stayed at the bar area and had a couple of drinks waiting f... view more

WATCH OUT! Problems with delivery and then correcting the problem

After receiving a flyer on my doorstep, I placed a lunch order with Electric Lotus. When I received the order was both substantially overcharged AND the order was incomplete. When I called the restaurant to straighten this out, the person on the phone was unable to help me but did pass on a message from the manager that the prices on the flyer were wrong. I left my number for the manager or owner to call me back. It'... view more

Worse than before...

Went there for the 2nd time after 2 years...the service was worse than before, was promptly seated but waited for nearly half hour to place the first order (it wasnt busy)..ordered chicken biryani which had only a good price tag but no taste-chicken pieces were very large and not properly done.. ordered a paneer tikka which was not on the menu and that too dint taste like coming from a professional cook- the batter ... view more

Another popular venue that sadly never rises above mediocre. NOT authentic of you think you're eating Indian food. It's bland pap for people who don't know food. The atmosphere is dark and loud. You cannot hold a quiet conversation and I've seen the place in daylight...ugly! My latest dinner there was a joke.\r I will try never to return but so many people I know are just used to going there and afraid of true India... view more

This is NOT Indian food!!!

I wanted to check out this local restaurant that I had heard a lot about. The description, ""Village Cuisine from India"", was undoubtedly catchy and being an Indian I obviously wanted to try it out. After a Friday night dinner experience, my only conclusion is that this ""joint"" has become popular only from food lovers who are so naively enthusiastic that they can almost be fed anything in the name of Indian, world... view more

Best Indian Food and ambiance to go with it!

Great food and decor. It is dark in there but I think they are just going for that mood. Make sure to always make a reservation and ask for one of the booths to get the whole experience....very romantic and wont be just another candle-lit dinner.

Slow service, too dark, inept

I love Indian food. So, we tried this place. BUT...I can't comment on the food because I NEVER GOT ANY! It was COLD and so DARK, we could barely read the menu. Service was SO slow, we had to have our food packed to go without taking a bite. Got back to the office and MY meal was not packed at all and everyone else's meals were missing the naan bread. Called to ask them to deliver the missing food; wouldn't/cou... view more
