Great food, Good service

Our family has been regulars here for years. We enjoy both the lunch buffet and the dinner menu. In fact, we've made it a tradition to have dinner here with extended family on Christmas Eve! We consider the food to be the best Indian food in the area. I guess we're not alone in thinking so, because... read more

My family is a regular at this place. The chef and owner is kind, friendly, and of course, cooks really well. His skill set is pretty versatile and might be willing to modify some items for you if you're particular. The servers are nice, but most times very inexperienced. They may not know how to bus tables as well as... More

The food is excellent! I teach ESL, and my Indian students always recommend this as the best place around--that's a great testimonial by my standards! Lunch time is the buffet, which is an outstanding value for food like this. Naan bread and tandoori chicken on a sizzling platter are brought to your table, and you go up to the buffet... More

The buffet is pretty good for the price. The service is a joke. Rude, rude, and more rude. Since I didn't meet the 100 character requirements - did I mention that the servers are rude?

If you like Indian food, you will not be disappointed by having lunch or dinner at this restaurant. My favorite time is during their buffet, in which you can try many of their dishes at the same time.

Fantastic food, friendly owners and never had a bad meal despite having tried lots of different items from the menu. Hayward 5000 and Flying Horse pretty good too!!!

The location and atmosphere are uninspiring, but this is easily overlooked after one experiences the extremely tasty food, helpful & pleasant service, and great prices. My daughter and I enjoyed ever mouthful - especially the chicken tikka masala and garlic naan. We went home very satisfied with our entire experience. Can't wait to go back and try the buffet to...

$47 for two, which includes a tip, complete with drinks, a side of rice and a naan. We had a special and the Tandoori Chicken. It was fantastic, a whole chicken.

Eaten here many times. The food is good. Of course, like many Indian restaurants they are cooking many dishes with too much oil. The tandoori chicken has been very good consistently. Friendly service. Uninspiring decor and ambience. Will return.

Really enjoyed our meal here. I rarely eat at Indian restaurants, as I'm almost always disappointed after many trips to India. We went here largely for my daughter. I was reasonably impressed. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the restaurant had a nice, quiet atmosphere (even though it was fairly busy on a weeknight). The food was far... More
