A buffet with many tasty dishes to choose from, and plenty of vegetarian as well. The service was good. These guys were pleasant and helpful which is always appreciated. Overall worth it, and the price was reasonable. The gulab jamon could have been a little warmer, that's our only complaint, still it was tasty.

Had reservations for 6pm. Didn't even need them. The place was empty. The buffet was lacking even though it was 6pm on a Saturday!!! No rice was left. Had to wait for more to be cooked. The atmosphere really was like a dark pub. And weird dusty wine bottles on the walls. Service was OK. But i had to ask... More

New owners new ideas new menu coming, fully stocked beer fridge & great servers. I guess it's a little early to rate as most of what the future holds is not yet in service. But that said tonight's food was delicious, chicken Korma with rice & garlic nan bread, bread was light fluffy & full of flavour. Lots of table... More

probably one of the very few /or the only indian restaurant on the happening whyte avenue. its in a basement and was really stuffy and lacking in oxygen inside although there were only three tables occupied. surprised to see a less than 20% occupancy on a saturday night compared to all other restaurants on the street that had waiting lists....

I ended up here at the recommendation of my hotel's desk clerk, and she was right ("seriously, try the butter chicken"). At 8 pm on Thursday there was still a good buffet, a little better selection for vegetarians than for meat-eaters. Not afraid to be spicy, but spicy and not just hot. The basics were better than usual, a good... More

Have been to this restaurant and enjoyed the buffet in the past, not sure what has happened to this once popular spot. We went on a Wednesday night as our first of restaurant choice was closed. We were the only ones in Origin India at 6:00pm, the buffet looked like it had been sitting out for more than a few... More
