Few will find it surprising that Indian food is easier to find these days, as you may be aware, Indian cuisine is growing in popularity for many good reasons. Indeed, the complex spices and fresh ingredients are leading many to choose Indian Cuisine as more than just an exotic dining experience... but as a healthy, everyday dining choice. <br><br> Here at Aslam's Rasoi, we also add a broad palette of Pakistani flavors to our menu and we are proud to see that our addition of Pakistani cuisine has proved a successful choice. <br><br> This blending of cuisine can be readily enjoyed in our main courses and our selection of appetizers. We hope you will try these dishes in addition to our inventive Indian Cuisine.

"We've only been here for dinner, so can't comment on the rest. Noel, our waiter, was THE BEST, the kitchen was right on with everything they created. Everyone was friendly, yet professional. We were a group of 8, not always easy, but no one ever missed a step. We sampled much of the menu, sliders, lamb, salads, I had a trio of veggies for my dinner... fantastic and the desserts!!! Wow! Great bread pudding, amazing Apple Tart... the crust!!!
I know Downtown is the new kid on the block, but don't understand why there wasn't a line out the door......

Reinventing casual dining and bringing you the food vacations are made of, every day. Live fire cooking and streetfood from surf spots around the world combine with innovative private dining spaces and copious outdoor dining opportunities.

"My husband and I have had a long-standing debate as to whether service really matters when it comes right down to it. He's always felt that if the food is good, the service doesn't really matter. This visit to the Surf Spot changed that opinion. The food was great! But our server? Meh... If it wasn't for the bus people, who felt like they had far more experience than our waiter, we wouldn't be returning. From not bringing (or even asking about) water and bread to not checking back on us to bringing our check without knowing if we wanted dessert or not (we did) he was checked OUT. I finally asked him if it was the end of his shift or something and he said "Yeah, in a few minutes." We'll be back for the food but not the service..."
