A 5/10 if I ever saw one...

Everything about this place was "just OK". Food - edible but not memorable at all. Service - OK - nothing out of the ordinary. Value / Ambiance - neither good nor bad, just OK. The only weird part was that they put a creamy ranch style dressing on the Greek salad. I wasn't a fan, and would order balsamic / olive oil if I go back - although not planning on it right now. Life's too short to eat just average food. Kind of what you'd expect from a Greek food court place, just served on nicer plates.

VERY disappointing!

I was really looking forward to trying this place, as there isn't a ton of restauarant choices in the Tri-Cities that are not chain restaurants, and I love Indian food. UGH - what a major let down.

Agree with previous reviewers that the meat dishes were terrible and overall the food was weirdly bland. We ordered the lamb curry and the eggplant bhartha. The lamb was horribly tough and dry. But the curry sauce it was floating in was even worse. It was strangely watery and had absolutely no flavour. I expect a lamb curry to be savoury and delicious, with melt-in-your-mouth tender lamb and thick rich sauce. This was disappointing in every way.

The only thing worse was the eggplant bhartha. I'm not sure it actually had eggplant in it, as all we could taste was the hard, undercooked onion that made up 3/4 of the dish, held together by an odd grey goo that I suppose was once eggplant...?!?! Really horrible.

The only enjoyable part of the meal was the naan. -- But note that none of the main dishes come with rice or naan - which I find to be really stingey - so you have to order it a la carte and pay extra for it.

We ordered this as a take-out meal, so I didn't taste the food until we got home. If we were dining in, I would have sent everything back - it was that bad.

Too bad, would have loved to make this spot a regular local hangout.
