Good food and good service - larger than it looks from the outside

- Food is quite good. - Buffet has some unique food items that I've not seen in other Indian buffets. - Restaurant is larger than it looks with an upstairs and an upstairs backroom for large parties. - Staff are friendly and helpful. - You may want to park in the mall parking lot (near Macys) and... read more

There are a lot of choices for Indian food in Sunnyvale, but this one is absolutely the best. Fresh ingredients, lots of choices, reasonable price. It's often crowded at lunch, so get there before noon. Or go for dinner, which also is a buffet, fairly rare in the area.

Turmeric offers buffet for lunch and dinner. The spread is pretty much the same but the food is very good. I would visit the place without a second thought. The Dessert spread could have been better.

I've been here 3 or 4 times now for the lunch buffet. The variety of dishes is immense and the cost is one of the lowest around. I find the food quite tasty. Easy walk from Caltrain if you are so inclined.

I have visited Turmeric several times. It is very pleasant and I have always had a good meal (had both menu and buffet) with fairly good service - a little slow at times but always responsive when asked, and staff are readily available. Only downside is that nearby parking can be very tight.

It is just below average ... items are not that good ... some are even tasteless ... visited at least 3 times, each time thought that the present visit will be good but no, it was all the same ... probably I will not visit anytime soon to this restaurant.

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

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.
