Appetizers include samosas, vegetable pakoras, spiced cheese fritters, and bhel puri, or puffed rice with onion, green chilies, coriander and tamarind sauce.

Diners desiring Chinese cuisine will find dishes such as Sichuan shrimp, sweet-and-sour chicken, lamb in spicy Sichuan sauce. Hakka chili-garlic shrimp, and tilapia with black bean sauce, and hot-and-sour soup.

Thai courses take in vegetable, shrimp, lamb, and chicken curries, and fried rice.

No dish is more than $20. Major credit cards are accepted.
