Typical Indian casino buffet: good food, good value

This restaurant should have 3.5 dots. It's good, better than what I call "average", but not quite "very good", in my opinion! It's a typical Indian casino buffet, located upstairs. You do have to walk through some smoke to get to the buffet area, but once there, it smells clean and smoke-free... read more

Though it's a self-serve buffet, the service is better than many and the food fresh and plentiful. Their seafood Friday and special holiday buffets are beyond compare and though more than similar buffets in Las Vegas, you won't feel lost in a hanger here! If you leave hungry, it's your own fault!
