To start with the positives, the tea and the madras coffee was good. Vada pav which is essentially batata or potato... vada was not vada pav, the stuffing had hardly any potato in it. It had chickpea flour and spies and then again dipped in chick pea batter and fried. This should be mentioned in the menu as chickpea vada. Very disappointed..read more

Amazingly there's a halal Indian restaurant right on the coastal hub of South Lake Tahoe. Step in through these doors... and you feel like you're transported straight into some restaurant in Chennai! The classic 20th century Bollywood music, colours and decor, the smell of South Indian curries (they do have North Indian cuisine too), the diverse people and the languages you hear around you... you would never guess all this is in a former logging town in a rural Californian countryside. Prices are slightly higher than your usual Indian curry house, but then again this is after all in the very touristy part of Tahoe. Everything is a little pricier in this part of town. We opted for the lunch buffet and we weren't disappointed! Both North and South Indian dishes were featured in the buffet section --- creamy chicken tikka, kurma style curries, chaat mix, naans and yellow pulao rice, the wonderfully thick mango lassi --- everything was perfect. A lovely Desi delight in the middle of Tahoe.read more

The food was okay. Not really Indian. We ordered chilli chicken and biriyani. Chilly chicken tasted very bad. It was... just fried chicken wrapped with chilly sauce. Biriyani was bland garnished with almonds and cheese which spoiled the taste. Not a great experience. Can try if u like americanised Indian food.read more

Indian has never been my favorite cuisine. In the 90's friends would drag me there because the options for vegetarians... was as good as it gets in world before gourmet vegetarian fare. This weekend, Nikki's changed that for me. Super dishes, wonderfully spiced. The naan and rice were perfectly cooked. Overall, great personal service, fantastic food for carnis and herbivores alike. Next snow season, when I'm back In Tahoe, I'll be leading the charge for more lamb korma, chicken vindaloo and shrimp tikka masala.read more

Not sure what I LOVED more, the owners, the food, the service... we were in Lake Tahoe/California for a week..honestly... we ate there every day (my husband Richard Spence does NOT eat any where but home.. Yes he cooks every day) between the soups that were made special to my liking, the buffets every day. The seafood, the curry goat, the curry chicken and the chai tea... absolutely delicious... not one meal was disappointing.... then comes my newly found friends Bu & Mita (owners) they say if you have a handful of friends in a life time you are very lucky... well I guess I'm very Lucky, I have two new friends who I can't wait to go back to visit (home away from home), and I hope they will take a vacation longer than 4 hours (very honest hard workers) to come visit Boston Massachusetts....HIGHLY RECOMMEND thank you so much...read more
