The best Indian food I've ever tried in Lower Mainland

This place has the best Indian food I've ever tried in Lower Mainland. Nevertheless, their staffs were one of the most friendly staffs I've ever came across. Service is needless to say - Outstanding.
The restaurant was not big, only sits about 15~20 people. The decoration were very very warm and relaxing, yet very elegant and exotic as well. If you enjoy Yoga, the moment you sat down, you'll feel the same like you're doing yoga at the moment, relax and calm. All my friends visited the place were very satisfied and wanting to go back because of the food, service and ambiance we experienced at Kona. Highly recommand this place!!

The pastries are soggy, and way too sweet. You'd only expect these kind of quality in a dollar-store restaurant, but not from a high-end neighbourhood with high-end priced bakery. (ps. They're the only bakery within 10miles)
I ordered the butter tart, dripped coffee, and a banana cream pie this morning (yeah, morning, suppose to be fresh in quality, but texture turned out like an "end of the day; before store closed" quality). When I saw my pie, I almost had my jaw dropped; my pie was like "car-crashed", I didn't see a pie, instead I saw parts and pieces of cream+banana+pie_crusts, like someone dropped on floor and pick it up trying to puzzle it back into shap. WTF. and the staff was like "I hope that's okay your pie turned into pieces". Next, their world best butter tart is way too sweet, it's even sweeter than an sugar-ice-cube, I ended finishing the tart-crust and half of the stuffings with my black coffee (you can imagine how sweet is the tart).
My friend ordered their daily special, sandwich like thing (french bread on bottom with ham+tomato+swiss_cheese on top) and pumpkin squash soup. I asked if their sandwich and soup would be better than my pastries, he said they just taste normal... the taste and texture are not that good to make him want to visit again.
I'm just glad I used groupon for this visit. Even with groupon, I wouldn't recommand their food, not even their service. TOM HASS is 400% better. You can even get better desserts/food in safeway. However, if you enjoy desserts extremely sweet and soggy, you'll definitely enjoy this place.
