I had been going to this restaurant for a long time and was very satisfied with the food and service, until lately. My friend and I noticed that the service had gone down. The ladies working there did not seem to like being there. Their attention to the customers was very lacking, as before they were always friendly and willing to bend over backwards. There was a guy there before and we hadn't seen him lately. It seems that since he left the service had done down. I don't like the fact that they do not have a self serve with the chai tea as to other Indian restaurants. We have stopped going. It just seems to either have new owners, or people that do not care. The food is still Ok.
Great Indian food - very flavorful but not too creamy. Very upbeat comfortable and lively atmosphere. Fantastic service, good selection of beers. They definitely do takeout, but it didnt' seem that they did delivery.
Intended to go to Ajanta with my 22 year old son, but the atmosphere there seemed rather formal for our mood and attire. Then we looked across the street and noticed that Khana Peena had a more relaxed scene, cheerful decor and a fair number of tables full for a Wednesday night in early December. So we got a table too and proceeded to enjoy the attentive service and prompt cooking from the open kitchen. We ordered a vegetable curry off the weekly organic menu, together with lamb kabobs, rice pilaf, raita and onion nan. Each item was outstanding on its own, and even better mixed together on the plate. No complaints whatsoever, and the bill for the two of us (including beers) was very reasonable for the quality of the experience.
We went to Khana Peena one weekday for lunch and really enjoyed their buffet. It was just the right amount, so that one could sample a bit of everything without feeling overwhelmed by the amount of dishes. Not to mention that at $6.99 w/ a drink included, we thought it to be more than reasonably priced. I'm not an expert on Indian cuisine, so I will apologize for not knowing names, but I found their spinach dish as well as the vegetable curry particularly good. The only qualms I had was that it almost felt as if the staff was rushing us to leave near the end of the meal. Other than that, it was a good experience.
