Decent Indian food. I have been here a few times for their lunch buffet and it has been good. I do wish they would have a larger selection for the buffet, but what they have is very tasty.

We went with family to the lunch buffet ... the selections were plentiful and the food was hot and fresh and the warm naan was brought to our table. One of the best buffets we've ever had for a very reasonable price ($9)
