I've been here about 7 times so far for their lunch buffet. The food is consistently good and I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who has a taste for Indian food.

I enjoy eating the Indian cuisine at this restaurant. It's always delicious. The atmosphere makes you feel like you are eating in a quaint restaurant in India.
