The staff welcomed us at the door and anticipated anything we might need before we thought of it ourselves! Located on 4th Street, Bloomington's Restaurant Row this cafe is unpretentious and cozy. The steaming cup of chai and soft lighting welcomed us on a cold night. Like most Indian restaurants, there are many vegetarian options. The vegetable biryani was excellent... More

We have been to many Indian restaurants around the country, and we found the food here to be well above average. Service was attentive, menu very diverse, overall a positive dining experience.

I had the lunch buffet here and found the food to be good. The service was also good, as we were quickly seated and served glasses of water. We arrived at the tail end of the lunch buffet, but everything was well stocked. It was however very messy. They could clean things up a bit after the rush. The bread... More

This is a nice option especially for the lunch buffet-plenty of food to fill up on if you're hungry. I like the butter chicken, pakoras & garlc naan. The patio is covered so it's not to hot on those hot Bloomington days.

This restaurant has a Sunday buffet that is wonderful. $8.45 cash $9.45 for charges. Not handicap accessible with limited seating for dinning inside. Nice covered outside seating. Food is delicious and the variety is vast. Vegetarian dishes are plentiful and 3 different types of chicken dishes were in buffet. Come and enjoy this pleasant setting with super wait staff.

Saw this place on Trip Advisor and decided to check out the lunch buffet. It was cheap (9$), fast, and DELICIOUS! The butter chicken was great, as was everything else. It had outdoor seating, on a porch with lovely flowers. Good service too. All around a pleasant experience and wonderful food. We may be going back soon...

A little expensive to take kids since it was $9 for luncheon buffet with cash. Paid full price for my 7 year old grandson but he ate his money's worth. Food was very good though and we did enjoy it.

I really like this restaurant but this is the second time in a month that we've had hair in our food. Long black hair this time straight from the kitchen. They need to wear hair nets in the kitchen and at least apologize for the incident. There was no sign of remorse, apology, or acknowledgement of the hassle. No price... More

This is my goto indian restaurant in bloomington. Their dishes have huge hunks of chicken and their naan is served fresh and warm. The service is great and it is a nice place to take a rate. I have yet to try a dish I dislike, it's that good.
