OMG this was definitely not indian food. I am Indian myself and this was not even close to what mediocre Indian restaurants are. The Chicken 65 (supposed to be marinated in 65 spices) tasted like dry chicken chunks in kung pao sauce. The Chicken Tikka Masala had no flavor other than cinnamon and was also dry.

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.

We got there at about 6:15 pm and the place was deserted. The Sports Bar part had quite a few people, though. The buffet was delicious with a good variety. The nan was old and crisp when we got there, but they brought out fresh nan and brought a plate of them to the table. A couple of people came... More

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.

In Laurel on business with a vegetarian colleague. Went to Sapphire for that reason. Huge menu with vegetarian, chicken, beef, pork entrees. We experienced great flavors and excellent service. Had a Dosai, which was as authentic as the doasi I had on a recent trip to India. We also had the Panneer Masala, which had a wonderful smokey tomato taste... More
