very good indian food – I went here yesterday. Food is really good..
service is also great..
make sure you go for buffet here, its only $9.95 and there are lot of varieties.
I am vegetarian but my friend has got some non veg options and he was very happy with it.
little problem with parking as they have very few spots but I could get it after 5 min wait.
I will highly recommend this one
Authentic Indian Cuisine, Delightful Service – Went with my mom last week on a Wednesday afternoon. After chatting with the owner for a while, we learned a lot about this establishment and I liked it even more. I'm excited that they are right around the corner from me!
This place is very inconspicuously located. The best thing about Lal Mirch is their food. It is the real deal and they take pride in what they serve here. It is a family business, with pride of ownership. Go for the lunch buffet, or dinner and be sure to have the tandoori chicken.
The staff is pleasant and will know you after your first visit. Ask questions and talk to them about their menu, they are very informative and delight in sharing their culture through their delicious food.
The place can be packed at the height of the lunch or dinner hour, but it is well worth it and the tables turnover quickly so you won't have much of a wait.
Fresh & Tasty Tradition – Went here for a small casual family gathering of four. First time. Was not diappointed.. Interior was welcoming, tasteful and cozy. Service was very pleasant and helpful. Classic vindaloos, kormas, and tikka masalas were not as heavy and fresher tasting than many other indian places which tend to over-cook sauces. Spice intensity is to your preference. Fried rIce was perfect. Chicken was very tender, though just a few more actual pieces would have been welcome. Although weekday room was full by 7:45pm, it was pleasant and not noisy. Reservation recommended for dinner after 7:00pm.
Horrible hygiene !!!!!! Beware ! – I went to this place for the first time with a friend. I know what a good indian food tastes like and what is difference between real indian food and a fake one. Food is all good and tastes good but i was shocked to see a "hair" in my daal or lenticles that i ordered...the worst part was when i told the server about it...he started looking around and didn't even appologized fro it nor did the manager. Neither did they serve us anything to replace that nor did they compensated it on the bill. I was charged for the lenticles i ordered and no regrets or appologizes from the management. I wouldn't recommend anyone to go here.
Good Food – Check out the lava dish. If you are interested in spicy food, it is really spicy. I never had a dish like Lava before.
Best Indian Food Ever – After my first visit I was hooked. At present I go at least twice a week. The staff is curtious and the establishment is clean. The only downside is the parking, but you can easily park across the street for a quarter. I highly recomend the Chicken Tikka Masala, although I have not had a bad dish. As a word of caution the "hot" (spicy) dishes are extremely spicy.
Wow!!! Mushroom with a twist!!! – We were at this restaurant last week for our book club dinner. I had the mushroom appetizer, wow! I never tasted anything like that before, full of flavor and had a nice sweet n spicy taste to it. The soup was also very flavorful. For main dish we had the chicken birani and Shrimp coco curry a notch above the rest. Love it!! We will be there again.
Give him the pickle! – When this restaurant first opened, my friend and I decided to give it a try and order delivery. The food was very good so we became a regular delivery patron, ordering about 5 times per week Then we decided to go and sit down to experience what type of hospitable service they have and it only took them a minute to recognize us since we were probably their number one delivery patrons. Sitting down in the restaurant was a total disappointment. The place was empty! I know they are pretty new in the neighborhood but you would think that any business would want to make friends and go that extra step to retain you. Well, that was not the case here. When we got there we were greeted with a side of bread that looked like thin waffles. My friend and I liked them so we ordered some more. When the bill came we notice they charged us almost 3 dollars for that extra side of waffles. We were not even told of the extra charged and when we told the server about it all he said was ?sorry, you order more you pay extra?. That is fine but at leas tel us know! I am a restaurant manager and I know how important it is to go that extra step for future regulars. In business, it is called ?Give him that extra pickle?. We will not go back. I know we can find other Indian restaurants who can give us that ?Extra pickle? in return for repeat patronage.
Good food, service, & ambience – My husband and i went 40 minutes before they closed. We called and they gave us good directions! We were pleasantly surprised when we went inside linen tables at this price with a smile in person and over the phone WHAAT? I ordered Chicken Tikka my husband Chicken Curry mild this was the best indian food. Fresh and tasty not over salty which is good. This will be one of our getaways for years to come.
Yummy! – Consistantly wonderful food and great atmosphere. My boyfriend and I have made this a regular spot. Very fresh and a freindly staff. I've always avoided Indian becuase I don't like spicy food but this place will make it mild if you ask but it is still full of flavor. Hands down, best Indian food I"ve every had!!
