My wife and I had the dinner buffet and a glass a wine. The buffet was $12.99 and the food was very fresh and very good. As for wine, it was only $3.00 a glass. The restaurant is very attractive and very clean. The service was excellent.

Food was just average although highly recommended. My niece ordered a drink & thought it was very sour. She told the waiter & he listened & then just walked away without saying a word. There were 3 adults & two children (16 & 120 at the table. I find it rude that he walked away without making any comment to... More

Their buffet is the best in town, always fresh and constantly being replenished. Nothing sits there long enough to get dried and tired-out. Usually crowded every evening, but the wait for a table is never more than 15-20 minutes. The buffet is large and generous and always offers several vegetarian options. It's a great introduction for people unfamiliar with Indian... More

... buffet in very pleasant surroundings. Excellent value indeed. Lamb saag especially good although very mild, also chicken tikka masala. Interesting and very good selection of chutney and pickle too.

It is a decent place, has good menu. Food is not spicy at all so those needing authentic India taste will be disappointed. Sort of average.

The food is the least authentic Indian food you'll find in the neighborhood, try Tandoor's or Sitar right across the street. The food has a lot of oil, too much salt and barely any flavor. Indians don't normally eat here or order from here, it's more popular for the afternoon buffet, but there are far better options in the area..

The food was amazing!! We went for our anniversary and my husband and I were shocked at how good the food was! We shared samosas as an appetizer and thoroughly enjoyed them! All of the dipping sauces offered, reminded us of a trip abroad. We each ordered lamb masala and naan. The naan was fresh and so soft and delicious!!... More

I always come for the buffet, why would you even order a la carte? Buffet is varied and plentiful. The permanent addition of goat was a good move on their part. Though no more ice cream due to cost cutting is a bummer. 3.5 bummed up to 4.

I've been coming here for 20 years. Love the updated décor and the new extended craft beer selection. There is also a list of mixed drinks. From the buffet, I had the chicken biryani and the Lamb Korma. Delicious....not overly spiced. Great salad and chat bar.
