Very good buffet.

Very flavoful food, and the buffet selections vary day by day. Some of the selections are a little spicy, but they have raita to cool off, and wonderful naan.

We ate here on a Sunday evening at the start of January. Good location, but the decor inside and outside is a little dated, it probably could do with a makeover. To start with we had popadums which were good, the sauces weren't the greatest but they were adequate. We ordered a Chicken Madras which was excellent, and a chicken... More

The buffet had a nice selection of foods. We enjoyed everything we tried, but if we were to recommend... More

I have never had real Indian food until now. It is absolutely delicious and made from scratch. The International Spice House next to the restaurant makes it easy to purchase spices and food. Great prices too.

We went there for lunch. There was a really nice buffet set up. The food was just perfect. They had a couple of chicken dishes, some vegetarian dishes, and a very tasty dessert. I will definitely be going back soon.
