Really great food and always safe, but for years now every time I try to go they’re sold out of the only things I’m going there for.

The service is always friendly and it would be 5 stars, but it’s a little frustrating that I’ve gone probably 25 times and they’ve only had my favorite and the reason I make the trip - the chicken tikka mole - in stock 2 times despite being a main option on the short menu. The specials, the a la carte options, cardamom chicken, small plates, and/or the desserts are usually out of stock 2/3rds of the time I go too, no matter what time of day or day of the week.

So this is partially a heads up to other customers that if you like their menu just be prepared to not get what you’re going for, and partially a plea to the owners: I’d be ordering way way more often if this inventory management was fixed

Otherwise, a great place with great food!

Absolutely delicious!

We very much enjoyed the cardamom chai chicken and the masala pork bowl. The flavors were complex and incredible. The chicken was cooked beautifully tender. The masala bowl was rich with spices and the chickpeas in it were perfectly cooked. Very satisfying!

Great outdoor seating area with several other food carts around! It shares a sort of biergarten set up with a bar on the corner and there are also some wine and cocktail options at other outposts in the garden.

Outstanding take on Indian Food, all food is gluten free, most is dairy free. Fresh tasty food, friendly & helpful staff. The cardamom chai chicken is the best!! Great food truck in a location that has two bars & bathrooms, lots of covered tables.

100% awesomeness, no gluten containing ingredients prepared at this facility so ZERO cross-contamination issues. I ate an entire plate plus sides and 2 hours later I am only feeling the effects of over eating! I will be back, and maybe even later today for dinner, it was that magical of an experience for this Celiac disease patient.

Great flavors and no worries. The chicken and shrimp offerings were flavorful in all the right ways. The tea infused sauce on the chicken is subtle and just slightly sweet. The pickles have just a little bite. Dairy-free, too. Yum.
