At encouragement of friend, threw caution to wind & opened that door behind which is hidden a lovely casual little restaurant with booths & tables, reserved but efficient waiters, & delicious food served hot &...

We visit this place very often. Buffet is our first choice. But unfortunately the food they keep on trays warm and sometimes cold. Ala carte items are good but the service is not up to the mark.

I might have given them a 4, but charging more than menu price is an unforgivable sin, especially when I bring it their attention. They had excuses as to why, but holy moley, get a pen out and fix the darned menu ! I was quite tempted to give them a 2 based on pricing problem. We had the buffet,... More

Excellent Indian cuisine. We have eaten here many times. Service is usually excellent unless there are many customers. Interior decor could be improved. See photo.

Had a wonderful dinner with my husband here. He had the goat and I had the paneer (cheese). Both were fantastic. The naan was fresh & warm. The rice with fruit was a treat. Would go again, service was a little slow to start but the food came out fast and it was delish!!

Wife and I went here first time a few days ago. Friends had said it was good. The buffet was a good spread of typical Indian buffet items and you could certainly fill yourself. The atmosphere is very plain and the wait staff, while responsive, were not enthusiastic. (I have to use the Royal Taj in Columbia, MD as my... More
