We had an experience similar to that mentioned by others - great, attentive staff, but the food on the buffet was sub-par. Most dishes were cool, almost cold, and lacked traditional flavor and spicing. We enjoyed only one dish - the garlic vegetables. Tandoori chicken tasted like franks hot sauce was used for flavouring....not good. We'll be going back to... More

We were anxious to try this restaurant as reviews were overall good. Unfortunately, the food was bland and not at all hot. Buffet food was sparce. Washroom was unclean which makes you unable to enjoy any part of the meal thereafter. The servers were very kind and polite. We will not return unfortunately.

Great Indian food -- the buffet is a great value with lots of great options. Appetizers -- not put out in huge quantities so that they are kept fresh andhot. The staff are attentive and it's just O e of our favorite places -- guaranteed not to disappoint.

The service was very attentive, and he genuinely wanted to make our experience awesome. But the food wasn't up to standard. I ordered the chicken vindaloo. The chicken was brown meat, not white, which is what we prefer. We weren't even given an option. Very tough. My husband ordered Goan Prawn. The prawns were small and there was an aftertaste....

We heard the radio adverts and wishing to try authentic Indian food we decided to try Narula's. The atmosphere was quiet and quaint. The server very helpful and polite. They described the dishes and explained the heat factors for each. The butter chicken w/naan was very flavourful. The Chicken Tikka Masala just the really tasty. The mixed veg was also... More

Hubby and I stopped in for a late lunch after a tiring date of shopping. We were too late for the lunch buffet but will go back for this again. We ate their samosa (recommended by our server) as an appetizer - it was sooo yummy! Then hubby ordered lamb curry and I ordered the goat Bhuna. The lamb was... More

Sunni and Rosy were the perfect hosts for our Girl Guides of Canada's Thinking Day luncheon for 40. We had full input into the menu for the buffet. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The food was fabulous and plentiful. I would highly recommend Narula's and will happily eat there again.

Not impressed at all, after reading the reviews! We went on a Saturday night at 6 pm, there were only 3 other tables with customers. One table was being used as an office, with computers and people working. We ordered the buffet, 2/3 of it was cold, rice had been sitting for awhile so it was hard. Spring rolls and... More

Narula's Hamilton location is now our goto place for Indian food. They'll make each dish spiced to your request which is a big plus as our kids are not into the spicy food as much as we are. We ordered samosas, butter chicken fries, vegetable biriyani, chicken biriyani, lamb rogan josh, tandoori chicken, malai kofta, nan & bhindi amchari. The... More
