Profile

This venue is closed.

The lack of Christmas lights, or the fact that you're more likely to hear a soul and funk soundtrack instead of a sitar loop should clue you in. Within its tastefully edgy pumpkin and mustard-colored walls, this off-Curry Row eatery offers a blend of Eastern and Western flavors unlike its kindred neighbors. A carrot soup emboldened with a touch of coconut certainly awakens the palate, and despite the disappointingly spring-roll outer layer of a trio of samosas, the stuffings—fresh mixed vegetables, goat cheese, and sundried tomato and shitake mushrooms—are superior. But other dishes, like the house-blended chicken and mushroom curry and the vegetarian combination, lack vim and vigor. Perfectly executed naan and cucumber raita, thankfully untouched by the fusion faction, spurs the realization that maybe if the kitchen stopped trying so hard to be different—and simply cooked fine Indian cuisine—it would really stand apart from its neighbors.

Extra

The restaurant offers an early bird prix-fixe from 6pm to 7pm, which includes soup or salad, entrée and beverage. Also, the downstairs party space features DJs, comedy shows, open mics and poetry several nights a week.
