I have dined here five times now and feel confident in writing this review.

The food is consistently excellent! You have your staple items, but there are also nice changes to the buffet each visit.

Most of the items are gluten free (not thatvI personally care, but some do.)

The buffet also offer a delightful range of vegetarian and meat dishes designed to appear to all palates.

What I personally love is that there is usually at least one dish that has a healthy level of spice to it.

The kitchen is constantly checking the buffet.

The Naan is fresh, soft and light with a perfect crisp bottom. You can get your Naan three different ways, from plain to garlic, and buttered.

The restaurant is spotless, and the staff quickvo replenish beverages, and remove plates.

Each time I have visited I have been happily greeted by Kareem. He is always, well presented, polite, professional, and courteous.

Lastly, having lived in Winnipeg, I can say with certainty that the Winnipeg restaurant is excellent, but Ottawa is just that much better.

Worst Indian experience in Ottawa. The restaurant is dirty. The food was cold and bland. The chicken tandoori was very tough and did not taste fresh. The only positive was the naan bread, hot and fresh. The service was ok. Not going back.

I was at this restaurant last week for lunch and it was excellent. Food was fabulous and different varieties available. The only issue was ma'am bread was an extra charge!!

We have gone a few times. Sometimes it is great, and other times subpar. There are a few vegan options, not labeled though. Some staff are great, others indifferent and uninterested. The food can be really tasty or bland and over spiced. Not consistent enough for me to return again.

Ordered a Tawa Chicken with Vegetable Pilau rice and a peshawari naan. It's my favourite Indian meal and I fancied trying it from a different place (I'm from Leicester which is known for its lovely Asian community and restaurants)
Couldn't finish the meal. The Tawa Chicken was so heavily spiced I couldn't taste anything else in the dish. The naan had no sweetness or almonds in it. The rice was okay though. Everyone in the group complained that their dishes were too heavily spiced. Phoned up to complain but restaurant couldn't help. Don't recommend for take away.
