Their specialty is the Thali diinner deal, 7.50$ for vegetarian and 8.50$ for non veg. There is room for about 25 diners. There is a counter with prepared foods (desserts I recognize but don't know the names and pakoras and samosas) then the hot foods of the day. Not everything on the small menu is presented but I didn't enquire if they can make something else.

I went with the non-vegetarian thali which included 2 meat dishes, 1 vegetarian dish, basmati rice, salad, naan and papadam. I received lamb curry and butter chicken (chicken curry was the other choice) and some spinach but no cheese. The butter chicken has a kick and the lamb curry was mild in comparison. The spinach was not creamed, more like a stew. I didn't know if the cheese was intentionally missing. The basmati rice is white and doesn't come with any flavorings. The naan bread is thicker than what I've ate at other restaurants but it's good. The salad is tiny. They forgot my papadam but I didn't complain because I was full.

I also ordered chai and a diet coke.can.
