Good Food but delayed service

This restaurant is very well located in Sunnyvale downtown. Food is also very good, specially biryani and other chicken menu (quantity is also very good). Only flaw was the service and that too in terms of time taken to serve the order. Overall good experience.

Best and most reasonably priced Indian buffet in the Bay Area. High marks for quality, selection, price. Try the dinner buffets on Fri/ Sat as well. We often come out to this place from the City of SF when we can.

I have sampled food from most Indian restaurants in the Bay Area and I still rate Turmeric to be my most favorite. My husband who like meat loves their Murg Ka Mukul. I love their Gobi dish with almond and gravy stuffing. Few years ago, I had organized a team dinner there but I had food restrictions. When the waiter... More

Our group of four was having dinner and the restaurant was empty except for us, which is a little scary always. The place is a little torn and the service was a little phlegmatic but the food tasted really good. I was told the buffet is good value for money, it was closed when we were there.
