Good Vegetarian Options

Dum Pukht is an Indian restaurant serving authentic cuisine from the region. The inside of the restaurant is elegantly decorated with plenty of golds and reds punctuating the tasteful decor. The dining area is extremely spacious, allowing guests to not feel crammed and enjoy their meal in comfort.



Dum Pukht has a lunch buffet option during the day that guests can take advantage of. For one set price, diners can sample most of the menu at their leisure, trying out all that Dum Pukht has to offer without committing to one single dish. The menu mostly consists of different curry specialties and tandoori, which is dishes cooked in a signature clay oven to maintain maximum moisture within the dish. The most popular item here, the chicken tandoori, is glazed in garlic, ginger and cilantro. Each meal comes with complimentary papadums and cilantro with a tangy sauce for dipping.

A very pleasant total experience. We felt welcomed once we entered the restaurant. The booth where we sat was comfortable. The wait staff were attentive and provided excellent advice on what to order. Based on their suggestions, we each ordered the lunch buffet, which turned out to be somewhat surprising. The buffet was served as a number of dishes including a spicy chicken soup, a nicely put together salad, 5 popular dishes (including butter chicken, chicken tikka), naan, basmati rice, and a sweet dessert. All the dishes were excellent and there was so much food that we needed boxes to take the remainder home, which is not usual for a buffet. Given the price of $15 per person, this was excellent value.
Overall, this was a wonderful experience that I would urge others to try. I know that we will going back.

Started with a warm welcome, perfect selection of reservation based on our request. The menu had a wide variety of items from appetizers to dessert. Chandan and his team go the extra mile to ensure your evening with family or friends is spent in the most special manner. It was a farewell dinner for my aunt who was going back to India and out of all the restaurants we took her, she was amazed with the entire experience and said this was the best of all. I totally recommend this restaurant for everyone. Keep up the great work.

Great tasting food, but relatively pricey compared to similar restaurants. Service is mediocre at best. Our server clearly had very little experience.

Initially we had a waitress attend to the table,she asked if we wanted drinks without a smile ...seemed she did not want to be there ,minutes later Abi believe to be the manager attended to the table , he was patient polite fast, definitely the perfect man for the position, I believe the owner was at hand but didn’t get a quick hello from him at all(would have been great,some affluent people were at the table)
Thank you Abi ...see you again soon

This was our first visit to Dum Pukht. We came with friends who were returning for their second visit. Dinner was relaxed with no pressure to hurry. Staff were friendly and responsive without being overbearing. The food was excellent, plentiful and we enjoyed our take aways the next day. Highly recommend this restaurant.

It was very terrible experience for my family. One of the staff member drop the hot curry on my Mom’s neck & no one came over for help or to ask her that if she is doing fine. They didn’t even show the courtesy to apologize. They just kept doing their work & tried to hide them selves. The service was very poor. Every time, we had to call someone to order more stuff. The manager wasn’t present & the staff in charge had no clue how to handle this kind of situation which proves how poor training was provided to staff. The hire new young staff but seems like don’t provide enough training.

Overall food was great, but I find the seats to be quite dirty - not the individual chairs, but the booth as they are a velvet type of fabric, in red, so I can see all the dirt clearly.

Great dinner. We ordered via menu and so could request for the food not to be spicy. It was a bit pricy but worth every penny. We will be going there again. My husband usually gets heart burn with the South Asian spices but was good with this dinner. No burn.

They even have a buffet at lunch time during the week. We look forward to trying that.

It was our first time at Dum Pukht tonight and we were thoroughly impressed. The ambiance, the service from the staff and the food were all beyond what we expected. The portions were bigger than other Indian restaurants we’ve been to as well. We highly recommend Dum Pukht and will definitely return!

We had to wait for 45 minutes even after booking the table. And the worst part was, I was standing at door watching every server and manager but no one came and greeted me for 25 minutes. Worst experiance ever.

Not a good experience at all. To begin with the wait staff HAD NO TRAINING nor any CUSTOMER SERVICE SKILLS whatsoever. Had to ask for everything thrice before it was provided. They seemed hugely unorganized and did not listen to requests. Food arrived late and was not at all up to the mark. there are other Indian places which offer way better service and food for half the price. WILL NOT GO AGAIN.

Check the itemized bill of your order. The staff has made wrong addition to our bill which we came to know after we had paid the bill and exited the restaurant. The portions are small and though the food is good , it really isn’t worth the price.
