Tried the buffet. A variety of dishes. Most mild, some spicy. A lot of chicken-based dishes, rices and vegetables. If you're not sure ask the staff. I'll try it again. Will try their dinner menu at some point as I am a fan of lamb. Give it a shot.

It wasn't very busy but the food was good. We had the chicken tikka massala 5/6 for spicy but it wasn't as spicy as other Indians for 3 or 4. Servers didn't have any personality.

Well, this is the only Indian restaurant in Terre haute, so it's the best. But, in all fairness, the lunch buffet is comparable to any other Indian restaurant in the US. Dinner choices are the usual ones found in Indian restaurants; nothing unique or spectacular, but still tasty Punjabi cuisine.

The Chicken Vindaloo that I ordered arrived at my table very quickly, with some jasmine rice. I ordered it extra spicy, it did have some heat, but it was still very flavorful, the spiciness didn't drown out the other flavors of the dish. The staff was very friendly, and attentive. The overall feel of the place was welcoming and relaxing,... More

I live in Terre Haute and believe me when I say I wish I felt differently about this place; I love good Indian food and there are no good places to eat in this city. Sadly, this place has awful food and even worse service. My husband and I went on a Saturday nite and ordered pakora and veg samosa... More

I hate to write this, but must report. This restaurant used to be very good. Not gourmet Indian cuisine, but flavorful and reasonably priced. Watch out now. Gave the benefit of the doubt one time. Now three or four times, there is dirt or sand in the spinach dishes. No, I'm not kidding. Obviously, the prep cook and the chef,... More
