good food, very good beer selection

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... read 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

Just had the supper buffet. Kids buffet was very reasonably priced just under 10$ and Adults were 20$. They had a great selection of food and the service was excellent. The restaurant looks brand new inside and is very well decorated. The only bad part was that the restaurant is located in the basement below an Irish bar....very noisy from... More

We went for the buffet lunch and I was definitely satisfied! It was quiet with only a few others in the restaurant. The food was amazing and the service was awesome, quick and polite. It was my second time at Origin India (last time for dinner) and I was once again left soooo happy.
