Is there parking available?

When dining with us for lunch, there are many different parking options available, from on-street, to self-parking surface lots, and paid garages. All are within a half block from our front door. We recommend the lot about 1/2 block away on Delaware Street next door to India Garden. Parking is $3.00, making it some of the most affordable parking in Indianapolis. Click here for additional downtown parking information. Do not park in the lot directly next door as they close in the evening and you will have no access to your car.

For those dining with us for a private evening event, we have the option of providing valet service for your function, as well as garage parking, immediately across Ohio Street from our front entrance.
