We love going to the lunch buffet, the food is alway great. We go for dinner sometimes and always love the place. You won't be disappointed.

It's been 8 years since I visited this Indian restaurant, but as with my first visit, the food was hot, delicious, and cooked perfectly. I enjoyed the Chicken Biryani -- first time I've tried it -- and so glad I did. It arrived at my table steaming, and the portion was so large that I had to take half of... More

Second time we have visited for dinner in less than a month. Both Saturday nights the food was flavorful, hot, and cooked just right. Both nights the restaurant was dirty from floor to ceiling. The menus had food stains on them, nasty. The linen table cloths were ratty, the silverware dirty, same with the glass wear. The understaffed staff unkept.The... More

BEWARE......waiters are RUDE. Not even worth 1 star, they need to learn how to make chicken curry & dal tadka. dal tadka was just normal dal with mirchi powder on top of that.

I called because I wanted to ensure we could order from the menu and not just have the buffet..yes, yes, I was told. We got there, were "greeted" by a rather abrupt woman, seated, and promply forgotten, after we said, no, menu items, to her question as to whether we were getting the buffet or not..finally, the same gruff woman...

What a great dining experience! My father and I visited and we were so happy with the service, atmosphere, cleanliness, and the food was delicious too! The handsome young gentleman who seated us answered all of our questions and gave us great advice on choices. I will come here every chance I get.

Food was great. Recommended. A pricy for an Indian restaurant, but Virginia Beach being a tourist trap, it can be overlooked. And the restaurant is more than a typical Indian restaurant, it is upscale in its ambience and decor. We went for a second time there this year, and we liked it both times.

I almost always get the Palak Paneer because it is my favorite! And the papadum (lentil chips.) I often eat here with friends on Sunday afternoons - they LOVE the buffet, but I prefer the less spicy version so I order off the menu. There are vegetarian and vegan options. The restaurant is in the Hilltop area of Virginia Beach,... More

Solid Indian food. Very busy in the evening because it is the only Indian place with proximity to VA Beach but food is great and servers try very hard especially since majority of customers are overly demanding native Indians. Authentic to the point they automatically ask if you want onions and chillies on the side without you having to ask/know-the-secret... More
