The food was okay , there's not much to choose from though . It's clean and not too crowded buffet (well we came in for lunch on a Friday ) . But for me it's just so I can say I had Indian food probably won't be back there for a long time .

My boyfriend and I are new to Indian food but this is the best we have had yet! It was absolutely amazing. We went for the Sunday lunch buffet and it was so fresh and inexpensive! Naan bread is served at the table plus a huge buffet with a perfect variety of food. Everything chicken was to die for. The... More

Having moved here from UK some 30 years ago we had given up finding good Indian food here but decided to try this restaurant after an Indian friend told us how good it was. So glad we did. The food is amazing - excellent flavor, we love shrimp vindaloo and it was delicious. Also have tried Tandoori shrimp and shrimp... More

Very tasty, authentic Indian food. Portions were generous with some entrees enough to feed two. Wait staff was very friendly and accommodating. Overall, a most pleasant dining experience!

Took my 10yr old picky eater to lunch here the other day. She loved the buffet as much as I did! We had a great time. I love all the choices at their lunch buffet and it's very reasonably priced.

I didn't get to try the lunch buffet, but we came here and had the sit-down dinner in the dining room, because it was on a weekday and they only do buffets on weekends. Looking around, the room is rather big and the servers are on top of things at all times. They brought out the naan while we were... More

My boyfriend and I were recently in Temecula for our first time for a wine tour. We of course came back to our hotel only to pass out until pretty late in the evening. By the time we went out for dinner it was about 9:00 pm. We walked into the steakhouse right by our hotel and there was no... More

The price is very affordable for the all you can eat lunch buffet (around $10 per person). Service is good each time I go, and... More
