Excellent variety

I'm not well-versed on Indian food, but like trying different things and enjoyed the variety of the buffet. I didn't care for the taste of the spices in one dish and a chicken one wasn't as tender as other chicken ones (including the kabobs), but everything else was good (ie, goat). I even ate... read more

Located in a strip mall where the exterior provides no indication of the wonderful experience you are about to have. For those interested in trying Indian food but never have, this is a perfect way to venture in. Lunch is a buffet (not sure about dinner) where you can sample many different dishes that you probably would be afraid to... More

We do quite a bit of traveling and are newbies to Indian food. Since this was rated #1 in Lafayette, we decided to give it a try. The owner recommended that we do the buffet to sample various Indian dishes. It was all wonderful! Everything that we tried was so good and it enabled us to have as little or... More

I eat at Sharma's Kitchen about twice a month and have been doing so for years. The food is great, the place is exceptionally clean and they always treat me like family. It is my favorite place to take guests and clients from out of town. They often post what will be on the buffet on Facebook; some items change... More

We stopped here for dinner on our way to Indianapolis and it was excellent. We ordered off of the menu because we wanted a specific dish, but the buffet looked good with a nice selection. We ordered the Vegetable Samosas, Paneer Mahkni, and Keema Naan. The service and atmosphere were both very nice. We will definitely eat here again when... More

I visited on the evening of Friday, December 5th. The staff was very friendly, immediately making me feel welcome. The atmosphere is bright, well-lit and inviting. I was immediately enchanted by the wealth of aromas drifting from the kitchen. We were very promptly waited on, with drinks and fresh garlic naan appearing presently. With those, I was offered my choice... More

It is worth your time to find this hidden gem and delight your palate. The price is very reasonable, and the buffet choices are plentiful. If you haven't tried Indian food, this is the place to start.

Friends suggested Sharma's for dinner. We were a bit concerned as spicy foods are not our favorite. We were pleasantly surprised by the reduced spices and well cooked food. Naan and chicken appetizer was great. The buffet was really good too. Our dinner partners are vegetarian we are not. There was plenty to satisfy all the people in our party.... More

When we drove up, we wondered what it would be like. TripAdvisor reviews liked it but you find it in a strip mall in a more commercial section of town. But don't let that stop you. You gotta go in side. The spices meet you at the door. Our group tried a couple of appetizers and three separate dishes. Everything... More

I read the reviews of Sharma's Kitchen and decided it was worth a try. Wow, the food was excellent, very flavorful and well balanced in spices. That it was a buffet added to the value, we were able to try all of the food and then select our favorite dishes for more. Not sure if they listened to the service... More
