Decent curry dishes, very flavorful. But not very hot, and when we asked if we could have it very spicy, since we like that, the owner flat out refused, saying that if we want it spicy we can add the sauce on the table. The sauce was a sweet-and-hot sauce, it was pretty nice and gave a kick, but I didn't want to add it since it's too sweet! Why couldn't we get a spicier curry made from the kitchen?
The appetizer was some deep friend won-ton filled with minced chicken. It didn't have much flavor at all and we had to load it up with that sweet-hot sauce. Not worth ordering that.
Also, the clincher was that with our meal we were served with rice, and we were charged FOUR DOLLARS for a little heap of rice?! Rice that must only cost a few pennies at most! And we ordered a side of Naan bread which was nice, but ended up costing another four bucks? The menu seemed to say it was 99 cents for an order of Naan.
I feel ripped off by the overcharging of accompanying dishes. My friend wondered: if we wanted to save money and didn't order a side of rice or bread, the curry would have come with *nothing*! How can you serve curry by itself? I would expect a restaurant to include, free of charge, rice or naan bread to eat the curry. Just like if you order a steak somewhere you usually get a salad or veggies to go with it, you wouldn't get a steak by itself with no side dish.
The ambience is very nice, African-motif. Very pleasant surroundings. The owner was there, and he was running things smoothly, but he seemed rather grumpy and a little scary even. When he gave directions to his pleasant Asian lady staff, he had a "if looks could kill" stare at them.
Overall, it's a ripoff, and we will never go back unless we have those 2-for-1 coupons you see in Entertainment books (and maybe newspapers?). It's waaaaaaay overpriced for what you get. Even with the coupon it'd be a fair value, not a good one. There must be better spicy restaurants out there.
