Their regular menu is still good but the buffet is slipping. You often have to wait for items to be replenished. Ate half my meal before Nan reappeared. BUT, the food is still good. They could offer one spicy dish for those of us who like the challenge.

I love Indian food. I travel to India for business regularly, about twice a year, for weeks at a time. I've eaten Indian food at fancy restaurants, guest houses, people's homes, cafeterias and roadside stands. It's always good. Even in the US, and right here in the Capital District, most Indian food is, if not great, then at least tasty.... More

Everything seemed to have to much oil. I had a dough cauliflower that taste like fish I was very offended because Im a vegetarian. A lot of green pea dishes and not the tradition chick peas. Very disappointed. Not going back.

I love this restaurant. It is very small and probably has 12 tables only but their food is excellent. It is a perfect place to have lunch if you are in a hurry. I have been there lots of time and never left disappointed. Very good food if you like Indian food.

--try the weekend buffet. Food is fresh and authentically Indian--don't expect gourmet Indian, but for the price and quality you will be very pleased. I go there once a week for the buffet!
