Ordered dinner delivered to room for 2 families. Biryani tasted like white rice Samosa Chat tasted like chick pea upma Bhendi masala was true to its name, Bhendi and Masala. They didn't mix. Bland, spiceless. Found spicier food at a mexican restuarant later

We just had lunch and food was great! To my taste it’s somewhat American Indian food. Not very spicy and not very strong smell/ odor. Very cozy and clean place. Will be back👍

One of the worst buffet i had ever had in any indian restaurant i had eaten. Probably knowing how to cook myself didnt help my cause. For the price they charge, it infuriates me to see frozen veggies being used. The food is so worthless,...their own employees do not eat there (one of the employee told himself) . The place is just cheating people who want to get a taste of indian food, by serving stuff which is not even close to being indian food. Street vendors in india can offer food which is far more authentic this place does. Their chole masala and aloo curry both taste the same. No one in their right mind use corn in biryani and curries. I was told none of their meat is fresh. Utappams need chutney and they serve sauce. Tell that to an indian foodie and he will laugh at your face. For $100 for a family of 7, what we got was just BS. I urge you....do not go to this place. Eat a sub or a burger and you will thank your own judgement Take this from an indian. There is nothing here that tastes like how it should be. Not even the water in their annoyingly wobbling tumblers.More

Vganti, what you've described is entirely false. We use only the freshest, premium-quality vegetables and meats. Our staff, vendors, and the wonderful community we serve who've raved to the authenticity of the flavor in our dishes can attest to this. You write of great dissatisfaction...More

Top quality Indian food with a nice buffet as well as menu. We often order take out food from this restaurant and are never disappointed. Good selection and friendly service

My wife and I waited 45 mins after they took our order AND WE LEFT BECAUSE WE WERE NOT SERVED. There were at least 2-5 tables that were served their meal and even some leaving who arrived after us. No one said anything, nor explained...that it took a long time to prepare our meal due to the fact that it was busy. We were only commended for our patience for waiting for our order to be taken and this was 20 minutes after we arrived. We have been to other Indian restaurants where we were treated with honor and respect. If you like waiting a long time to place your order and to receive your food and not being advised to the progress of the preparation of it, then this is the place for you. NO THANKS, I WILL PASS ON THIS ONE WHEN I RETURN TO PENSACOLA. I don’t give bad reviews but this place truly inspired me .More

Went here with the wife for the lunch buffet. We have visited many Indian buffets and this one was very good. They had a great selection and the food was hot and fresh. The staff was nice and the place was clean. It is just...a small locally owned place, and we like supporting the little guy, We will be going back.More

I had the butter chicken. It was very spicy, but really tasty. The rice it came with was good too. The staff were very helpful with ordering. The building looks like it used to be a fast food restaurant from the outside, but it is...pleasant inside. Both meals we ordered were very good.More

Tried the lunch buffet. The staff were friendly and their service was great. However, the food left much to be desired. Most of the options were not hot, nor did they taste fresh or have much flavor.
