Had a short trip to Rochester with the family and wanted to see if the Indian food in Rochester was better then in the Buffalo area. Did a search and this place came up in the area we were going to be in and it had some good reviews. We went on a Friday night and it was not too busy and were seated right away. Set in a little strip mall the place was easy to find and parking is easy. The TV's are set to Bollywood (very low volume), tables set with linen and host is OK on greeting. They quickly get you water and some Pappadam. We ordered the Chicken Korma($12), Kadai Gost($13), and Chicken Biryani ($14). The food came in a reasonable time and it was wonderful! We ordered it mild and that is how it came unlike many places where mild is much more. The food came with Basmati Rice that was cooked perfectly. We ordered the Bread Basket that contained 4 different types of Naan. Portions were nice and between 3 adults and 1 four year old we had plenty to share and we took home just a little. We tried the Mango Kulfi and that was nice. Overall, we liked the place and would go back. It is better then a couple of Buffalo places we have gone to recently (Tandori and Kabab & Curry) but I have had better (well...more authentic) in places I have visited in London and Toronto so I am a bit fussy. Service was OK but not much energy, emotion, or caring...simply not eloquent. Seems you only get that now in a rest. where you spend $75 per person not $20. Check this places site for coupons!
