This place used to be in a much smaller place on A Street before they moved a few years ago to Mission Boulevard. In the process, they toned down the spices and the heat and the food just isn't as interesting as it used to be. Its a comfortable restaurant, much more comfortable than, say Pakwan, further down Mission, but... More

For lunch or dinner, you have your choice of selecting from the buffet or ordering off the menu. After eating here several times, these are our favorites: Butter Chicken, Chicken Tikka Masala, Paneer Tikka Masala, Naan (bread) and the mango frozen yogurt to cleanse your palate. They have two other locations, but I have not eaten there, yet.

My wife and I drove 30 plus miles to try out this restaurant. Dinner buffet is not as great as people have mentioned on other reviews. It's average. I have eaten much better food at other places. Probably will not go again.

We love Indian buffets and this one is excellent. Usually Indian restaurants have buffets only in the afternoon. This restaurant has buffet dinner Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They have a huge selection which includes both north and south Indian dishes. They bring your water and bread (nan) to to your table and continually refill both as needed. Chai is included... More

Best Indian in the area, certainly one of the best food deals. Go for the lunch buffet (there is better quality food at the sit-down dinner service), for a huge meal and skip dinner. Or.. Go for a great dinner.

I love this place! I have reviewed before (in the old location) and am delighted to say that the new, much larger, home is often packed to the doors. My friend and I are predictable, and always eat the same items, but they are so good that we stick with it. The service can be somewhat quirky, but I always... More

My family has scoured the East and South Bay looking for Indian lunch buffet. This places pretty much blows them away, bang per buck. There is a wide variety, the place is not packed to the gill with tables, and we even had booth seating (although the seat cushions are a bit worn out) They even bring freshly baked nans... More

We go here all the time. Much larger since their move to the Mission Blvd location. Employees are great and food is consistently wonderful. The buffet has everything; or order from the menu.

My wife and I were in Hayward on a business trip when we found this place. The restaurant is located just across the intersection from the Hampton Inn we stayed at during our visit to Hayward. We did not arrive when the buffet was open, but found the menu to be quite extensive. The service was excellent and the atmosphere... More
