Had read a lot about Bukhara and considering it was started by someone who previously owned Taste of India ( Oh! wow!) and India Palace ( Oh! Oh!) Then they talked at length about Mughlai style of cooking. I should have known better. We went in expecting great food and we were treated to mediocre food that is served in... More

We visited Bukhara on a Saturday night with a group of four people. The Samosas were great, served with a flavorful chutney. Each of us ordered a different entree. I enjoyed the chicken tikka masala and my wife had a vegetarian masala with chickpeas. Everything arrived to the table in a timely manner and was served hot. Our friends were... More

The vegetable samosas were good, but a little dry. I enjoyed the lamb biryani and naan, but nothing really stood out for me. I would probably give them another shot when I'm back in town; maybe try something else from the menu.

Indian food is not one of our favorites but we like good curry. Felt it lacked something. There were no other people in there and that should have been our first clue. Won't be back

Indian restaurants are one a mile in twin cities. But they are also as common as it gets in terms of taste. Bukhara presents a difference, We tried the buffet twice just to make sure the first time was not just a hit and miss case of getting good food. Naans are always freshly provided at the table. The refills... More

Buffet's are usually bland; inoffensive. Not here. This is excellence, available every day. Not only are there the standard Indian fares, Palak Paneer, Tandoori Chicken, but Fish Masala, Lentil Soup and a host of other offerings. The host will greet you with a smile, the wait staff is fast and helpful and the interior design is pleasant without ever being... More

Bukhara is excellent! The chef's recipes are more complex than other Indian restaurants in the Cities with lovely flavor profiles. While everything that we've ever tried here, we've enjoyed, our particular favorites are the Rogan Josh spicy and the Chicken Tikka Marsala mild. We also highly recommend the Beef Samosa - one order of two can easily be split for... More

A small restaurant tucked in a strip mall. These places usually have the best food. This place definitely delivers! If you like spicy Indian food this is where to go. They have seafood, beef, vegetarian and chicken options. Unlike most Indian restaurants the naan portion was generous. The level of spice I asked for was more than superb. Price was... More

Located in a strip mall this restaurant is run by an Indian family and all the servers and reseptionists are Indian. The booths are comfortable and the atmosphere pleasant. The wait staff is polite and helpful. The friends we were with enjoy Indian food and claimed that his was the best of the best. The plain naan and the garlic... More
