Indian buffet with great service

The buffet includes a variety of foods, including several vegetarian options which makes this a great family outing for us (since one of our daughters is vegetarian).

The place had the absolute best Indian cuisine in Carmel. To do it right hit up the lunch buffet and you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I have been ordering Amber Indian for takeout for at least three years. We have both travelled and agree that this is some of the best, authentic , Indian food we have had. There is construction in front of the restaurant (hwy 31) but don't let that keep you from going! It's worth finding your way further... More

Weekend buffet includes chai tea which is a bonus. Food is probably best of the Indian buffets in the greater Indy area. It's almost comical how quickly they refill your water glass - take one sip and they appear to top it off again. India Sizzling was our favorite restaurant, but you'll have to read our review of that restaurant... More

Good Indian food at a fair price. The vegetarian dish my wife picked was not too spiced in a yogurt base with spinach. I am a big fan of hot spicy foods and I love vindaloo. Had the lamb and the meat was tender and the sauce was very spicy the way I liked it. A definite return is in... More

The food was good, it was a little pricey for a lunch (over $15 for one thing) and took quite a while to get but tasted good.

This is one of the worst Indian food I have ever had. Ordered for a Chicken Briyani and they ended up giving Tomato rice. Cancelled it and ordered garlic chicken Togo which had all burnt garlic. Service is so bad here. Waiters just throw stuff on your table and they don't treat you well not even a Hi or Thank... More

Went here for lunch based on rave reviews, and while the buffet was good-sized, and had a few things you don't usually see - like bhel puri - ratios and seasoning were all off. The palak paneer had no blocks of paneer, and was unusually creamy; the dal makhani was somehow al dente, and there were large chunks of nutmeg... More
