Food was delicious - very typical Indian fare and appreciate that they do not use onions and are 100% legit vegetarian. Shockingly however the servers behind the counter were not the most friendly or patient with explaining the process. The serving ware on the metal plates and bowls isn't my preferred way to eat.more
