We were here on a monday and it seemed that the food was prepared a long time before that.Even the naan tasted badly,The only good thing I had was the mango lassie.I also got sick that same night which ruined my next day.

The quality of food is good. I wish they had more South Indian dishes like dosas. The offerings include standard curries, naan, tandoor, lentil. Whats nice is that it isn't too "saucy" and is quite flavorful without being overly spicy. We have been there for dinner and they do adjust their meal flavors to suit your taste. Their lunch buffet... More

This restaurant has been in the same location at the Northtown Plaza for several years. Their lunch time buffet is just the right size and variety to ensure freshness. If you are a big eater, you will certainly get your money's worth.

Stopped by here for lunch and decided on spending the $10 on the Buffet. Indian buffets don't tend to be high end affairs and this was no exception, but it was tasty, well laid out and with enough varieties of entrees, sides and a couple of desserts. Service was good, brought out naan breads quickly and in time to soak... More

Whenever we return home to the Tonawanda/Amherst area and need our curry fix, there is no question where we are going to eat. I've never been able to sample their buffet, but that is probably in their favor since I could eat their food till I burst. When we show up their it's usually with a party of 8 and... More

We visited the lunch buffet, food variability is acceptable. Has five entrees with couple desserts. waiters are polite. Food is not spicy, thus it was okay for kids to eat unlike other Indian places. Not so much fun place for kids, more for adults, local businesses and students. Not expensive! (-ve) They serve naan (bread) only once. For four people,... More

The buffets are so enticing it is difficult to move beyond them to explore the varieties of food offered here from various regions in India. The buffet is kept well supplied -- no scraping at the bottom of an overheated pan. If not in the mood for the buffet, I especially enjoy the lamb curry. On our visits here, we... More

My husband and I happened upon this restaurant for the first time 6 months ago. It is found in an Strip plaza out of the way of the hustle bustle of Niagara Falls Blvd across the way from TJ Max. We were glad we did. Again last weekend we had a delicious meal. We have only eaten at lunch as... More
