If you are used to authentic, high quality Indian food, this won't equal the best places in the Berkshires but is an okay place for pre-theater dining in Williamstown. All of the dishes were fine but nothing special.

Went for lunch with five other family members based on the reviews . Other than us, there were four or five customers. We asked for buffet so we could choose what we liked and we had only 45 minutes for lunch. Someone mentioned the buffet was $9. Not true. It was $11/person which I found out when I got the... More

We like Indian food and this was good and typical, but not great. The chicken dishes were excellent, but there were no beef or fish choices. We would go there again.

Absolutely delicious place with friendly owners, brisk service and good food. Everyone enjoyed their meals and dessert. The flavors are different than those in restaurants offered in our home town - I did not ask if the food is north or south indian. Nevertheless, it was delicious. Highly recommend this little bit of exotica in a small town!

We walked in from the street, impressed by the number of people in the restaurant. The food was excellent - very fresh and well prepared.

My favorite place to get lunch! I love the buffet -- just $9! Great Indian food to either take out or stay and eat. Restaurant is nice and cozy inside. I often go by for the take-out lunch buffet and the food is always hot and a great variety.

Delicious Indian menu. Reasonable. A little cramped for space, but everything else is good. Lunch buffet is great deal.

We really enjoyed this restaurant on our trip to Williamstown. The space is attractive and the food is delicious. I don't like really hot food. This food was flavorful without being too hot. The wait staff was attentive. Service was efficient. I wish the restaurant was closer to home! It would be one of my go-to places.

I usually am not a big fan of Indian food (too spicy!), but the limited choices in W'town convinced me to peruse the menu. Seemed to have some unique preparations in addition to the usual fare, so we gave it a try. Didn't disappoint. Will return on our next visit to the area

I love that they don't hold back on the flavors at this restaurant. And if you ask for hot, expect HOT. I like the Jalfreezi and my daughter's a fan of the tikka masala and korma. The garlic-cilantro naan is also a hit. Great atmosphere and love the non-stop Bollywood on the bar t.v.
