Very Highly Reviewed! Check out what people are saying...

Could not be more pleased.  We stopped by at 9 pm and they opened back up for us. Lamb curry was excellent.  Naan bread was crispy hot and quite frankly, the best I have ever had—LA to SC.  I can hardly believe this place is local to me.  Hooray!! Delora B. on Yelp

Chana Masala is to die for! The atmosphere is warm and friendly. The staff are so kind and the chef seems genuinely excited to share his cooking with you! This place should be packed daily because it is truly wonderful! Pamela Ann on Facebook

Legitimately amazing. This is Northern Indian cuisine. The best Indian food I've ever had, try all the chutneys! Extremely accommodating with dietary restrictions. Vegan options. I got a spinach entree, vegetable fritters, and stuffed wheat bread. Also, the bathroom is really clean. Michah M. on Yelp

If you like Indian food, come here. If you've never had Indian food, still come here. Especially for the Saturday buffet. Delicious butter chicken, beef vindaloo, and fresh made to order naan. Very friendly staff, and the owner always wants to make sure everything is good and you have plenty to eat. I can't recommend this place enough. Adam Miller on Facebook

Great experience! He is an incredible chef and especially since he does a one man show. He brought out special sweet bread that was delicious and potato cakes in addition to the excellent buffet food. He also went above and beyond restaurant service and helped my grandparents to the car. Highly recommend! Sara K. on Google

Top 10 site for Steelhead Fishing

Cattaraugus Creek has been listed in the top 10 sites for Steelhead Fishing (rainbow trout fishing) by 2 outdoor magazines. Steelhead Trout AKA Rainbow trout are very similar to Salmon in both taste and habits. Unlike other areas of the United States, our native Rainbow trout (Steelhead Trout) spend a majority of time in Lake Erie a freshwater lake and spawn in the Cattaraugus Creek and other tributaries.

The following is from the New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation's article "Steelhead Fishing in Lake Erie Tributaries"

Lake Erie's tributary streams, both big and small, receive an annual run of migratory rainbow trout called "steelhead." From October through April, thousands of steelhead ascend New York's Lake Erie tributaries on their mission to spawn. Excellent fishing opportunities await any angler who wishes to try their hand at steelhead fishing. Between the acrobatic leaps, long drag-screaming runs and rod quaking head shakes, the fight of an early run steelhead is a truly exhilarating experience.
