My niece and I had lunch here. The selection of Indian cuisine was broad on the buffet. The price was right and the service was excellent. Try to butter chicken or the tandoori. They also have delicious freshly baked naan. Be sure to ask for this to be brought to your table!

My daughter and I ate lunch here and I was very pleased with the food selection and quality of the dishes on the lunch buffet. Finally a place on the Southside with great Indian cuisine. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely be back.

Suprise change for lunch and first taste of Indian food. The lunch buffet certainly was a great way to sample a wide array of choices. The selectIons were mildly spicy and pleasing to taste buds. I appreciated the many vegetarian selections. Indian is unique and full of flavor. The owners are really accommodating and insure your satisfaction. I'll look forward... More
