Good buffet

This is a nice Indian restaurant. We went there for a buffet and often go there. Little far from my home but it's worth for a lunch buffet. Good variety for both veg and non-vegetarian.

Went in on a very cold night looking for a bit of spice to warm up. I was pleasantly surprised. The server was excellent. Maybe one of the best I've ever had. The food was really good. Will be dining again when I'm in the area.

My husband and I visited this restaurant for a date night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. We ordered tandoori chicken, aloo matar and rogan josh and thought our food was top notch. But the primary reason for the 5 star review is the service. So attentive, polite and efficient...we were spoiled! Great date night!

Decent Indian food. They have an all you can eat buffet at lunch. The Naan and Tandori chicken were good. Always love the curry. Place was pretty crowded at lunch.

Loved this authentic Indian restaurant. Visited every time I've been to Minneapolis. Easy walk from the convention center.

This restaurant has really gone downhill. On our last visit, the buffet lunch was simply bad. The chutneys were sour, and the server refused to stock up on the poakoras, which finished at 12:10 pm- "No, we will not make fresh". The buffet spread does not have any dall. The dosa batter was sour beyond belief, the sambhar was terrible.... More

Went to a quick lunch while at convention. Great food - buffet meant service was fast. Only complaint - no idea what the dishes were on the buffet - maybe needed some signage. But food was very good.

I had lunch with two colleagues, we arrived at 11:30 am, well before the lunchtime horde arrived. Having eaten at some pretty good Indian restaurants in London and Kansas City, I wasn’t expecting a stellar experience and I wasn’t disappointed. Although the place was about half full, there was a chronic shortage of naan and other assorted dishes. It was... More

Out of all the Indian places I have ate in the Twin Cities this place is the best. The interior is okay, nothing fancy, but the buffet food is always stellar. I have never once left here not full, nor unsatisfied.
