We had a buffet lunch. At c$11 + tax it's value for money. you get around 4 veg dishes and a similar number of non veg dishes with rice and fresh nan. Food tastes decent. Deserts could do with some improvement. Restaurant was clean. Worth a visit if you are missing Indian food.

Restaurant isn't fancy but the food is delicious and the service is good. We will definitely eat here again when in the area.

Stopped in this restaurant (adjacent to Quality Inn) for lunch just as it opened for lunch. The lunch buffet includes the staples of an Indian Buffet: lentals, chicken dishes (and tandori) as well as an excellent chick pea dish. Lunch buffet price was reasonable and the mango lassi is among the best we've had.

The buffet was fairly decent, although certainly not the best Indian food I've tasted. The restaurant itself was dirty and certainly could do with being cleaned, and the tablecloths were filthy, the waiters white uniforms were filthy, and if that wasn't enough to put us off ever going back, then the visit to the restroom afterwards was. Rarely have I... More

This restaurant is decent. Food is good. Not too oily and not too heavy. But it can get pretty busy during holiday long weekends. When i went (without a reservation), there was a queue of thirty people waiting. So, be prepared to wait if you dont have a reservation.

Visited for lunch and had the bufet menu for about $11. The food was delicious and authentic, reminded me of the tastes of India. Many options for vegeterians.

We tried two indian restaurants and this one was our favorite. The samosas and naan were really good. I loved the eggplant dish. The staff was really friendly and there was no wait to be seated. Although, we did go during the week. It wasn't a fancy place, but is a great casual place for dinner after a long day... More

Having eaten in alot of curry houses in the UK, I have to say this left somewhat to be desired. I will try and give a balanced view firstly by saying that the guy who served us was pleasant and attentive. We were the only ones in there but I don't think that is down to poor food - the... More

I like this place, but then I am British. I don't like the really bright bulbs in there. The food is good and they will alter dishes to suit you. It's open late and pretty authentic.
