I visited there last week during weekday evening. Although the place is almost full. But I did not like this place. It is quite dirty. Table cloth ripped. Tandoori chicken is very very dry. However, I also had other curry dishes. It was not bad. The garlic naan was very bland and dry, too.

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat in Sunnyvale and came upon historic Murphy Ave which had a number of restaurants to choose from. We decided to try the Indian food buffet at Turmeric and enjoyed trying out the various buffet foods. The wait staff would replenish our water. The buffet was very popular and the... More

This is one of the few Indian buffets available for dinner (Friday, Saturday, and Sunday) and it is reasonably priced. The food is diverse and delicious. The staff is incredibly friendly. They checked with the chef regarding which dishes were gluten free and did so happily. Very nice place. We eat here about once a month.

Stopped here for the lunch buffet on a Saturday. The buffet was quite diverse and tasty. Quite a lot of variation. The dining area, upstairs, was quite spacious and clean. Would recommend to other readers.

The food is a good Indian fare, with no compromise on quality. Good ambiance, and they have a bar that served up martini - which was a pleasant surprise. Would recommend this place.

We had been patronizing Turmeric for quite sometime. Turmeric offers lunch buffet and for dinner offers both buffet & a-la-carte. The pricing for all days of the week remain the same. We had gone for the Saturday buffet lunch. The buffet is located on the 2nd floor of the restaurant and the seating area quite spacious and comfortable - there... More

Went to this restaurant on Valentine day. (The original plan was to somewhere else as that restaurant had a long line, we wound up coming here.) The place is packed. On Valentine day, the management had already pre-selected the menu – which is being the buffet dinner (no other choice). Regular price for a buffet dinner is $12.95 and they... More

For some reason most of the restaurants on Murphy St. in Sunnyvale are closed on Sunday night but fortunately Turmeric is open. Great food and since they have a buffet then there is no need to wait. They had a very good combination of vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes.
