- The butter chicken was subtle, perfectly rich, not greasy and very fresh. They actually shredded the chicken off of the bone...no boneless skinless chicken thighs here my friend just well marinated goodness. The curries were all mild, but still flavorful. The service was great, despite there only being one gentleman waiting the tables, he took the time to explain the dishes to our table and even make suggestions. If you want something different, colorful and fragant [sic] check them out. – Charice M., Yelp
