Quite tasty

We were quite impressed. I for one had never had Indian food before, and was quite pleased with the experience.

Go early to the buffet for best choices. Service is quick, prices are good. The yogurt is house made so the Lassis are very good and not too sweet.

I must say we really do like the food and service here but it is just too pricey. The lunch buffet is a very good deal but a takeout dinner for two will run you $50 plus - step price for indian takeout. Food is very good. Love the naan, chicken tikka and the masala. Also have very good tandor... More

It's Saturday night and I made the family dress nice for Uncle's Yu's. We got there and there was a 2.5 hour wait. So we went to Sauce another 45 min wait. Looked across the way to the pizza place and they had a huge line. So we thought let's try that Sansar. We got there and there was only... More

My favorite being the chicken Korma, butt I can't really handel spicy food and when I asked for my dish to be not spicy, I immediately got a snooty look from the server and when they brought my dish it was very spicy and I had to...

I'm visiting and staying in the Livermore area for a few days and Indian food is always a good choice for a not so expensive lunch and it's an all you can eat buffet! I'm not really sure how the tradition of an all you can eat lunch buffet started in Indian restaurants, but every one seems to offer one.... More

When we entered the restaurant, which was almost empty when we arrived, the three servers were having a discussion in the back and made us feel we were intruding. We are used to friendliness in Indian restaurants and having spent considerable time in India usually relate to the staff. They advertise free chai with the buffet and there was a... More
