Good lunch buffet

Good lunch buffet with fresh naan made for order. Love their goat curry. They used to have a good eggplant dish too, but I haven't seen that in a while. Plenty of seating. Accept $1 off coupon from coupons4indy.com if you remember to print it.

Service was poor, it took them 20 mins to bring one naan that too after reminding twice. Two girls were serving and taking orders. My friends didnt like the food here and on... More

This used to be my favorite indian restaurant. I worked across the street and came often. It was one of the few indian buffets in town that actually had spicy food. Today was disappointing. The dishes weren't spicy and the quality of the ingredients were lacking. Only the outer layer of the tandoori chicken could be eaten, the inner part... More

I work in Carmel and eat lunch out pretty much every day. I usually make it over to Amber Indian about once a week. This is good, high-quality food. Not being an expert, I can't say how authentic it is, but I suspect it's the real thing. My only regret when I go here is that my stomach is not... More

The buffet was good. It was clean, temperature was right. The Naan bread was tasty. My only disappointment was the mango custard. It fruit reminded me of the fruit Cocktail that comes from a can .

Our family enjoys going to this restaurant, and we probably go about once a month. We have done both carry out, as well as dine in. The service is good, and this is the best Indian cuisine in Carmel, Indiana.

I am a frequent visitor to this restaurant, and always for the expansive lunch buffet. There are so many wonderful vegetarian and meat offerings that rotate, so I wouldn't want to go for dinner and have to pick one thing. They also have wonderful condiments, including pickled onion which I love. This place is always packed and at 7.99/8.99, it... More

This is a really nice place for Indian food. I went with my daughter and her husband last year as it is really good Indian restaurant in their city. I have visited this place several times and enjoyed the food and ambience each time.

My experience with Indian food is pretty limited, but this restaurant has a very nice lunch buffet. Plenty of options, most of which was very tasty. My favorites were the chicken/mushroom marsalas, some kind of red colored garlic chicken dish, and I didn't catch the name of the other one, but it was also red and pretty soupy, but it... More
