I have been visiting this place for the lunch buffet for years and I have never been disappointed. The food is just delicious, service is good and the place in general is well kept and clean. Right when you open the door, an inviting smell of a "faraway land" welcomes you, and you just can't wait to check out the... More

I have tried the Indian restaurants in the area and found this one to only have a nice decor. I'll take better food and variety instead. The food was all chicken and potatoes! If you like chicken in all of your dishes (including the rice) try thier buffet. I found their to be no imagination to any of the dishes... More

There was not much of a choice for vegetarians, but the naans were very good and soft. Non-vegetarians have a lot of choice and would probably enjoy it a lot. But, it's good for a quick speed lunch. The groupon was worth it.

The restaurant was busy when we went, so we had high hopes, but it wasn't good. I am confident that my vindaloo curry was made with tomato ketchup and Dave's Insanity Sauce. Bad does not describe it. If you like curry, don't go.

All the food is good, but having eaten Indian food many places throughout the world, I've never had such good chicken tikka masala anywhere as here.

One person commented it was 'Americanized Indian food', but to me it tastes more like it's a regional difference like the difference between Mumbai and New Delhi. I had a roommate from Mumbai and she made the best curry but it would set your soul on fire. The food here has similar flavor but not as much heat to the... More

Love the buffet. Eat so much I make myself sick! It is not as spicey as my very favorite Indian restaurant in Oklahoma City, Ajantas. We eat at Mirch every time we go to the Springs.

Tandori and desert are must try if you go to this place and dot forget the... More

Probably still my favorite Indian restaurant in the Springs. Even though after my trip to India nothing quite measures up - but Mirch Masala is the closest!
