This was better than I expected it to be

I am by no means an indian food expert, so I wont frame this review in that manner, but I can say that the lunch buffet was really a great way to experience some foods I might never try based on their own strength. If you wanted to wade into the realm of Indian food this might be a great... read more

Our son lives in the area, so when we are visiting him, we often eat out. We've been to this place a few times and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. Great Naan, wonderful Chicken Korma during our last visit and all reasonably priced. It's in a strip mall and is small and kind of... More

We heard from friends and here in Tripadvisor that the food was very good. Coming from Washington DC we had plenty of Indian places to choose from and were quite pleased to find the food fresh and tasty here. The Indian hot tea is a nice addition to the lunch. The service is attentive and the food is quite tasty... More

Lunch is a buffet style. Limited choices, but ALL good. Nice change from fast food joints. Price is reasonable - you'll spend as much on a burger - so enjoy the different flavors of India instead. Healthier too.

Great Indian food. Love the Butter chicken with cheese naan. Also the polluck panier (spelling is off, sorry) is very good. They have a buffet for lunch so you can try a little bit of everything.

Love going for the lunch buffet that happens to also be 7 days a week! If we get water my wife and I eat and get stuffed for under 20 bucks. Always a great flavorful variety. Love the rice pudding and the mango pudding too when they have it.

I ordered the Mattar Mushroom, Naan Bread, Vegetable Samosas and Mango Lassi. All of the food was delicious. Everything had such good flavor and just the right amount of spice. I regularly eat Indian food in Minnesota so it was nice to find such a great Indian restaurant in Swansea. I will definitely eat here again if I am in... More

I love the food here. It's my go-to place if my husband or I want a special treat. We love Indian food. The decor is very simple so some might not find it fancy enough - that is the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. I prefer to go at lunch time when there is an... More
