One of the best Indian Restaurants

After 10+ visits to this restaurant, I still haven't ordered off the menu. The buffet is to die for.

I'll admit I'm a fan of Indian buffets because I don't have friends or family that will join me. Now, i have both friends and family, they just don't share my passion for Indian food. The buffet works for me because one person cannot order the variety of food found on a typical buffet spread. The downside is most Indian... More

We have been to other Indian restaurants in the area, and Best of India compares favorably. Maybe not the most eye-pleasing restaurant, but the food is good and the service is helpful without being intrusive. The Tandoori chicken was prepared to the spice level we requested as we had our kids along, and it was great. The vegetable biryani was... More

At the behest of one of my colleagues, we set out to the Best of India luncheon buffet yesterday (new year's eve). Not huge by bulk buffet standards, but an ample & delightful variety of tastes & textures, somehow different than the other American-taste-leaning Indian options. Even the black tea was spiced nicely w/o sugar! Friendly proprietors, and plenty of... More

I met with friends here for a meal before a comedy show. The atmosphere was nice and the place wasn't crowded. Our sever was friendly and knowledgeable. We had spring rolls for appetizer that were as good as any I've had. I had a curry dish with shrimp that was yummy. I would definitely go there again.

I particularly recommend the vegetable Biryani which is far better than any of the many other places I have sampled it. The Palak Paneer is good also, as are the excellent naan bread and the Tandoori Chicken. The staff are suitably attentive without being intrusive, and the owner is constantly on hand at the restaurant with a sharp eye on... More

The location of this restaurant is very different.. As soon you will enter you will get Indian restaurant feeling....the service can let you down but the food can make your day. We tried chana chat and samosa which were great.. Butter naan were great.... Quantity is very good for the food ...not heavy on your pocket and must try.....

We were here for lunch after a busy morning. The buffet was tasty even though the variety was limited. We enjoyed the first round of the food but when they replenished the dishes, the food was different and the staff were offended when I voiced this.

Went here for a buffet Lunch. Food was really average and was not bad at all. The only thing we felt bad about this place is if you are among last people to have buffet, they may mix water in curry and serve. Our first serving of chickpeas curry was great but when we took second serving, it was tasteless... More

We were promptly seated, served, and our meal arrived quickly. We ordered a lamb dish..I am not normally a lamb fan as I have had baaaaa...d lamb at a few other restaurants, but this was delicious. We also ordered a chicken curry, palak paneer, the bread basket of assorted naan, and Gobi Manchurian. Everything was great and plenty left over... More
