The options for a vegetarian dinner are limitless here. I have eaten here on multiple occasions and have never had a negative experience. The naan is excellent, and after sampling a large portion of the curries they offer, I can safely say that if you enjoy indian food this restaurant will not disappoint you.

My wife and I ate the buffet lunch. It was average as compared to Indian food we have eaten in larger towns. I did like the spinach. There is some repetition on the buffet. A friend ate lamb, not on the buffet that was very good. Also a god restaurant for vegans.

We were pleased to see a local Indian restaurant when we moved to Johnson City last Summer. We were even happier when we tried it, wonderful food, and large portions. We regularly get food from Sahib and take it to go. Friendly staff, order is always correct. If you like Indian food try Sahib, you won't be disappointed.

We tried a number of different types of food on the buffet & we just didn't care for the flavors. A lot of other people was enjoying the food. It just didn't suit us. Won't go back.

I had never tried Indian food before but was very glad I went. Their ability to blend meats, vegetables and spices is outstanding! The food isn't loaded down with salt so the flavors come through. Would recommend lunch buffet if you're unsure of what to order.

This was about our fifth visit and will be our last for a good while. Everything we had was completely different. The sauces were too sweet, and the heat was not accurate (I wanted mild and my husband wanted medium). The service was off. I've found it inconsistent but we love Indian food so keep going back. This time it... More

I have ordered lamb korma in almost every city in the country. This was one of the best. Not too spicy, with golden raisins and very flavorful. The naan was really perfect and the vegetable samosas flaky and perfectly spiced. The tamarind sauce was also good. The atmosphere is charming and there is plenty of parking. The staff is friendly...

Food ☆☆☆☆☆ Service ☆☆☆☆☆ Location ☆☆☆☆ Ambience ☆☆☆ Amazing food, great service and the chefs interact with you. Sam's kaju paneer recipe was mouth watering. No doubt it's one the best restaurants in Tennessee.

There it was a beautiful buffet with many india entrees. Istarted with the appetizer veg samosa , followed by mint chutni and sweet lassi. A great atmosphere with satar music rising with the smell of sandalwood incense in the room. I then tried the basmati rice with saag aloo and tandoori chicken cooked in their tandoor clay oven.
