Great deal on excellent Indian food. I got enough food to last a while at my motel. A-class place and reasonable prices.

We went here with our family for New Year's Eve. They had an extensive Indian buffet set up with terrific voices. What they also had, that I usually don't see at other buffets are little cracker snacks, and a variety of sauces. Their stir fried okra and onions was a favorite. Service was a little slow to get started, because... More

We were looking for an Indian restaurant closer to home, and tried this one. They had a buffet and thought that would give us an idea of their menu items. Very very good, plus a good selection of vegetarian menu items, which was great since we brought a vegetarian friend with us.

I have been at Sapphire both for lunch and dinner. The latter is more expensive than the quality of the food would warrant and will not review it here. It is best to visit at lunchtime and on the early side of the lunch hour, as the food left in the warming ovens tend to dry out. There is a... More

Was driving around determined to try a well reviewed trip advisor restaurant. Stopped by and was pleasantly surprised with a dinner buffet. At $15 it would be hard to beat for a Saturday night. The first thing I tried was the tandoori chicken, although it was the size of buffalo wings, the flavor was great! The other front runners were... More

We had some time to spare while in this city on a Sunday night, and there wasn't a lot to do. We came across this little bar and had a great time. We sat at the bar and had a couple drinks, chatting with the friendly female bartender; then we decided to play some pool. The locals were very friendly,... More

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. The aloo papri chaat... More

I have been to Sapphire Restaurant three times now and it is better than average Indian Food with a welcome variety in they also have Thai food on their buffet. Not a lot of ambiance in it is an older shopping center connected to a bar but very good food for a buffet. I would go back for the buffet... More
