very good pre-concert buffet

Went with friends and we all decided to avail ourselves of the buffet. All the food was very tasty, and while there was spice as you would expect from Indian food, it was not over-powering, at least for us. Mind you, we like a bit of zip. The buffet has a wide variety to choose from. There is far... read more

I went for lunch at East India Company with my mom. I have been coming to this place for years. It has consistently been the best Indian food I have ever had. The owner Sachit Mehra can write a book about the service industry. The staff is friendly, fast and accurate with orders. The food is tremendous. The bill for... More

Ate here in 2006 and have never found better anywhere in Canada. Was back in 2015 and couldn't wait to try again. It did not disappoint. Very wide selection and food is hot and tasty. I warn you - you will be uncomfortably full for the rest of the evening (don't make plans!). Great spot.

My mother and I LOVED the food at this buffet in the heart of Winnipeg! The statuary and general ambiance was lovely, the staff friendly and helpful, the food exceptional, and the scotch selection extensive. We sampled the samosas with various sauces (tamarind, spicy, yogourt), several curries (goat, chicken, crab, and lentil), chicken and palak (cheese) paneer (with spinach), biryani... More

Here for a few days on a business trip and staying at the Delta. This place is close to the Delta and got decent reviews online, so thought I would get some Indian food for dinner. Ordered the malai delight for one combo for pick up and brought it back to the hotel. I'm not sure about the sit down... More

I went here with two others, one of whom is Indian and we fully enjoyed this Indian Buffet. The food was fresh and tasty. I thought it was great. My Indian friend thought it could be a little spicier. The atmosphere is very nice. Well decorated. The staff are very friendly there.

The buffet/brunch on Sunday had nice variety of main dishes, salads, chutney and deserts. I had to try a bit of everything and it really 'hit the spot' for me. I skipped dinner as I was still feeling stuffed. The restaurant was full when we arrived but within 5 minutes we were seated. Long line-up to pay but everybody had... More

This restaurant was a recommendation by a taxi driver of Indian origin so we guessed we would be safe here. We were not disappointed and visited the buffet selection more than a few times until we could eat no more. My colleagues who are from India were suitably impressed.

Must be successful as the place was packed on a Thursday night. Everyone does the buffet. They didn't have Chicken Tikka Masala nor Bhindi Masala on the buffet nor the menu and these are the two I get to judge a restaurant. So, they failed. Service was lousy too!
