We did enjoy the dinner but some elements were better than others. The arugula salad was nice. The Halibut special was excellent and fairly priced. Nice selection of drinks. Pleasant atmosphere. Disliked the pizza with what looked like a pre-fab crust---skip it. The pasta was just OK. Did not taste homemade but was filling and flavorful. I do not think we should only get bread on request. Either they should bring to us or ask if we want any. I would return if I was in the neighborhood but would not seek out the restaurant, and would not order pizza there. More

A fabulous night out! Came in from out of town to try this neighborhood gem! Beautifully decorated. The best ambience for a nice dinner with friends and family. Would make a great date restaurant as well! The menu is beautiful. Hard to choose. We selected three appetizers: shahi kachori, aloo Tikka and Chapli kabob. All three were so scrumptious! Beautiful presentation! Almost too beautiful to eat. The seasoning hits the spot. Every bite is so flavorful! We had seekh kabob, behari kabob and achari chicken for dinner with naan. I’m telling you, you have to try this place. The flavors linger in your mouth. I want to go back and try more dishes. More

I took my girlfriend here for her birthday as she had seen the chocolate piñata online and wanted to try it. She had bacon wrapped shrimp and said they were absolutely amazing. I had agave queso chicken which while very good was spicier than I expected. We did get the wrong piñata, chocolate lovers instead of the regular chocolate one but it was still very good and she had fun breaking it. We would definitely go again. More

Very nice restaurant with a contemporary elegance which compliments the Arts & Crafts architecture of the building. Service was very good and my meal was excellent. Valet parking made it very easy to get to without the hassle of finding downtown or lakefront parking. We went to see a play at the adjoining Lakefront Theater and then came back to enjoy a cocktail afterward. Very convenient. The view of the lake is stunning and the outdoor seating made for lots of choices for dining. More

Fortunately it wasn't busy and I was able to sit directly in front of a fan; after dong that for a while my experience improved. More
