Went to luncheon buffet yesterday, 8/14/16. The temperature outside was 91 degrees and they had no working air conditioning in the restaurant, just a big box fan. Unbelievable. I could eat very little; just too warm. My husband stayed and ate more. The bill was $38 for 2 buffets and 2 teas. FIND ANOTHER INDIAN BUFFET.

Over a decade of going here. North Indian style food (Tandoor and Punjabi) made from scratch. Very wide menu with all kinds of meat and seafood. Probably the only tirangle restaurent serving Lobster dish. Good Breads. Ambience is little loud and bright colored. Chef is same for 15 years, unusual for an Indian joint. Recommend for authtenticity of food style... More

The hotel recommended this restaurant and it was very good. The menu is extensive. I had Malai Kofta Curry and the portions were generous and well spiced. The salt lassi was tasty as well. If I lived in Raleigh, I'd go back.

My experiences with this restaurant are almost all during the lunch buffet, so I can't speak to how the meals may be during dinner. As for lunch, it is a very tasty buffet- the main meat options are usually Tandoori chicken, chicken curry, or butter chicken. Other items may contain other meats with vegetables, of which there are usually 5-6... More

If you like Indian food then this is the place to go. I recommend visiting for lunch since they offer a buffet with lots of delicious choices that you can pick and choose and try a little of everything. You can go back for more and I guarantee that if you like Indian you will definitely go back for more.

We recently moved to the area and like Indian food. Based on the recommendation of an acquaintance, we decided to have dinner here. At 7:30 on a Friday night, there were only two other tables filled when we arrived. We should have taken this as a warning and left but instead decided we should give it a try. I ordered... More

We thought the food was not very good. Limited options on buffet and some dishes seemed old. We will try other indian restaurants.

The chicken tikka masala is some of the best I've had - perfect blend of spices and heat, for an unbeatable price. I've had better naan from other restaurants, but it is still good. Definitely recommend this spot!

We went for dinner where we ordered off the menu. I can see where the lunch buffet could be a better experience. I did not experience much to like about this place and a check of about $100 for three of us was excessive to me. It is located in a strip mall, the interior is dark and dingy and... More
