We love to go here for their lunch buffet. It's sooo good. It's in a convenient location, close to transit.

Been here several times, with pickup orders for the office, lunch buffet, and dinner delivery. Consistent quality and good curries and Indian dishes. Learn what you like and don't deviate. Not all dishes are created equal.

Love the place. We normally go there for lunch buffet once a month. The food just taste so Indian and love the plain naans, so good. A variety of curry you can choose from and my favourite is butter curry chicken. Highly recommend!

The buffet is nowhere near as spicy as regular restaurants, which is good I guess. Haven't tried their regular menu so can't say if that's different. Good food for what you pay, good location too. No complaints.

The naan is the best I've had. Delicious Indian food, but I always leave wanting more heat in my meal. They've dialled down the spice-o-meter a bit too much. Maybe to appeal to families?

My wife and I went here and ate the buffet. My wife bit into a piece of broken glass in one of the dishes. We brought it to the attention of the waiter and his response was "Oh, ok". They didn't even remove the dish that had the broken glass. We'll never eat here again.
