Great food

The food was great, the new management and new look was amazing. The food was so fresh, I was served fresh naan bread at my table and loved the butter chicken. The server was very nice and guided me through the buffet. I would go back.

Let me start by saying when I went to get my food there were no dinner plates. When I asked one of the employees for plates, he said "ask him" pointing to the manager. The manager told me they ran out of dinner plates. I had to use a smaller plate (dessert plate). The food was disappointing, not a lot... More

The name is there,but this is the only thing left from what it used to be a very good restaurant.We went for the lunch buffet and it was terrible experience.The soups and the tandoori chicken were cold but the worst was the butter chicken.It was served as pieces of chicken with the bone inside.The ice cream containers were empty.Generally speaking...

I have been to this restaurant before when it used to be on two floors. Currently the restaurant is part of the hotel and i found that the menu although less than before had better items and tasted better than before. We went on Christmas night and they had a big turkey in the buffet. The overall ambience was good.... More

An average restaurant in all respects. We went for a buffet lunch and there isn't much to write about. It's supposed to be a buffet but there were not that many items. I liked the chicken tandori and the other dishes were just okay. The sweet items were good too. Service so-so. Sitting on two levels looked quite interesting.

I used to go here when i was young with family long time ago when i lived in Montreal and I've remembered it as a good place with good food. However, I went this Saturday after years and so I was very excited. Going to make a long story short, they moved the restaurant from upstairs to downstairs in a... More

On Aug. 26, 2014, I visited the restaurant at dinner time. I was ushered into a small restaurant on the ground floor instead of the spacious buffet upstairs promised by their website and which I remember from a previous visit a few years ago. When I asked what happened to the buffet upstairs, I was told that the upstairs is... More

My wife and I went for lunch yesterday and were extremely dissappointed. We will not be going back. The room where this restaurant has been for ever is closed or is to become a hotel or something, so a sign guided us to a small room at street level. Very small, and full of grade school kids (grade 5 and... More

Went here with some friends one morning when we were all hung over. Frankly the place is pretty run down, and the food is by no means special. BUT cmon people, you have to handle your expectations. If you walked into this place thinking youd get something great, youre probably the type of person who walks into bad restaurants often.... More

ABSOLUTELY THE WORST Indian restaurant I have ever been to. Pakora and Baji were so dry that they shattered like philo pastry when you bit them and required water to get them down. Samosa were burned around the edges. The yogourt sauce seemed to be watered down with something fizzy like club soda. All rices were so over cooked they... More
