Decent buffet

I decided to try this place after having Taste of India (which I enjoyed). The service we received was very nice. The food was replenished in a timely manner at the buffet. All items that I tasted where good and tasted like Indian food I have gotten in other major cities. Overall, I would recommend... read more

But not until after taking my money for a reservation through Groupon. Showed up with my guest and the place was totally dark and parking lot empty. Website clearly says they should have been open. (6 pm on a Sunday)

Good food, and very very bad service. I'll never go back. We were largely ignored. After seating, it took about 15 minutes to ask for water. Another 15 to order. The food came out quick... well, all but the side they forgot. That was the last we saw any staff. After finishing and waiting for a while, I had to... More

We had reservations for a large group. At the restaurant's request, we changed the time to 1/2 hour later. We sat for over 1/2 hour with no acknowledgement, menus or drink orders. A member of our party got up & requested service. Drink orders were taken but it took at least another 1/2 hour to receive them. The same person... More

The food was not bad but the service is embarrassing. First they said that they couldn't split the check between ore than 8 people (we were nine), they served a very bad wine, and they pretended a glitch to the system and they've made me pay the entire check. Bad.. Very bad!

The food is decent, although expensive. Definitely not the best Indian food I have had. The service was AWFUL. I have never been treated that way by a server/manager before. Avoid this place.

We visited this restaurant during a Monday evening. The wait staff was efficient, extremely polite, and professional. The atmosphere had a genuine Indian feel, but we would have enjoyed music in the background rather than dead silence, outside of listening to the conversation of others. For appetizers, we ordered the Vegetable Pakora and it was delicious. For dinner, we ordered... More

We had a really good family dinner last night. Started with veg. samosas (excellent) and pappadam (the usual). Tried a bit of everything: lamb, butter chicken, plus Palak Paneer (spinach/goat cheese) and dal (lentils). All fresh and hot. The girls loved the Mango Lassi. They do ask if you want it American spiced so if you like it hot let... More

My better half has long maintained that Passage beats the local field, but I've not been convinced - until last night. Their Lamb Palak (medium spice) was the best Indian dish I've ever had - and that includes a heck of a lot of meals and venues, including in India.

I enjoy Indian food, but my husband had only had it once before this meal and had agreed to it very hesitantly. Just as the other three reviewers had discount certificates, we also had a Restaurant.com certificate. We'd never been here before and didn't know what the dishes on the menu would be like, and because they don't have a... More
