The food at Kanishka is very good. The taste is authentic Indian Punjabi. Lots of options for vegetarians. The paneer tikka masala is their signature dish ( similar to the taste of butter chicken ). This is amazing - dark red gravy perfectly spiced. The...More

Good food. Some room for improvement. We ordered malai kofta and naan. Sweet Lassi was okay too watery and thin.

Hadn’t been here for awhile and now that I’ve gone again I remember why, food is basically blah. Plenty to eat but not that tasty. The Tandoori Chicken and bitter chicken are my favs, but not much heat or flavor. Pretty average.

Kanishka is undoubtedly the best north Indian food in this area. The buffet is vast and good collection for vegetarians too. But my favorite is their Malai kofta during evening hours matched with excellent kabuli naan and bullet naan

Probably one of the best indian buffet in redmond/bellevue area as quality of food, however i think they can have more variety of non-veg food which would make their buffet better. Price is ok, atmosphere is good, and service is good.
