Phoenix New Times' Description
This affordable, contemporary Indian restaurant, specializing in the cuisine of the Punjab region of Northern India, is named after India's roadside pit stops, where truck drivers go for a cheap, filling meal. And true to its namesake, The Dhaba is an affordable place to relax and indulge in awesome homemade breads baked in the tandoor oven, tandoori halal meats, deep-fried treats, and street snacks called chaat. There's good people-watching, too, from the young Indian families who come to feast on homey dishes, to the costumed performers who do tastefully choreographed Bollywood-style dances.
Tips from foursquare
Great Indian food, don't pass this up!
Best Indian food I've ever had. It's conveniently located right next to Campus Suites--so it's a convenient spot for ASU students. Try the chicken masala with a naan. Quick service and huge menu!
The best chicken tikka masala and curry - try it with the onion kulcha in place of rice - finish your meal with an order of kheer. By far the best Indian food in town!
The lamb korma was outstanding!!
