Everyone in Latham raves about Karavalli. I disagree. When it comes to Indian food, I prefer Latham Biryani. I find most of its food better (especially all things tandoori!). I also find that the atmosphere is better for families. Karavalli makes me unwelcomed when we bring children.

I am a big fan of biryani. When I'm craving Indian food, there's a good chance that biryani is what I'm after. To be honest, that's the main thing I order here. Once in a while, my spouse will get a chicken tikka masala or jalfrezi (both good), but the Sindhi Biryani is where it's at. I like this biryani... More

This is a family owned place with great food and a friendly atmosphere. Lunch buffet is all you can eat so you won't leave hungry. Even though it's a buffet fresh nan bread is provided with each meal. One of my favorite local places. By the way they also do take-out by weight, a very good deal.

Small, clean, very nice place, and excellent food. Everything was the right temperature, very tasty, not too spicy, we enjoy a little bit of everything they offered. Highly recommended.

The staff is always welcoming and gracious. Occupying an old Pizza Hut, from the outside it looks rather odd. Inside is a wonderful experience of Pakistani food. Everything is prepared fresh, so it is NOT a "fast food" place. It is quiet and non-alcoholic (a feature I personally appreciate). We have taken groups from workshops and friends their often. The...

This the best indian restaurant in Albany and during lunch they have a very affordable all you can eat buffet. The place is getting old and without going for bling could use a fresh coat of paint

Stopped in on a whim as I've passed this restaurant for years and was always curious about the lunch buffet. I'm not overly familiar with Indian or Pakastani dishes so this proved to be an excellent choice. The staff were very nice and extremely helpful. The hostess actually walked me through all of the buffet selections. Every dish I tried... More

very friendly staff prepare fresh dishes just the way you want. Fancier more expensive alternatives can be found nearby but Latham Biryani is a great option. When in the Albany area this is where I go for great authentic Indian.

This was by far my favorite place to have lunch but my last visit just might be my very last visit. After serving myself from the buffet and starting to eat, 2 choices from the buffet were ice cold and 1 other was lukewarm. I went back to the buffet table and saw that there weren't any heating cans under... More
