Not terrible, but not outstanding

We had a Groupon for this place, and wanted to check it out. Well, had we not used the Groupon, I would have been annoyed at paying full price for such a minimal selection, with very little that stood out as good. There was nothing that was horrid, just nothing worth remembering. Next time I'm... read more

Manoj, the chef and owner, told me that they start preparing the meals fresh every day at 5am and that the sheen on top of the many different sauces probably reflect the ground onions with which they are cooked. I like coming here for lunch and find the vegetarian fare already more than filling. There are good selections for starters... More

We enjoyed our dinner very much. The garlic nan was fresh and hot. The butter chicken was pretty good, but the red curry with pistachios was great. The service was friendly and attentive. Only complaint is that the lamb was not tender enough.

Food variety : Just like any other budget buffet, very limited. One Appetizer, No desert, two vegetarian curries. Food taste : About average. Ambiance : Dark, dull & deserted Price : Had a groupon deal ,so it was very cheap. Even otherwise, price is reasonable. Go for it, if you are looking for budget buffet.

Really yummy Indian food! My husband loves indian food! You can come in and do buffet style or you can order individual dishes. We love doing the buffet for a quick and yummy dinner before going to the movies around the corner.

This restaurant is a hidden gem offering really good Indian food at very affordable prices. This is the kind of place where you are going there for the food and not for the interior decorations. You can order individual entrees or the fabulous buffet (I highly recommend the buffet). You will not be disappointed going to the Little India Restaurant.

There's a lot of good indian in the area, but for some reason very little in RWC. Head south and things pick up - Amber, Darbar, passage to india in PA, a bunch of places in Mountain View, and 100's in Sunnyvale. This place is funny - we ate there on a night where the buffet was in good shape... More
