Finally... This restaurant is closed.Poor management attitude; surly wait staff and an extra charge for rice make this a welcome subtraction for the local restaurant scene, If you want good Indian food just go a short distance to Parsippany. There are many choices both and just off Route 46.

This was the worst Indian food experience I've ever had. The food was bland and unflavorful. The service was sub par. The wall by our table looked like it hadn't been wiped down in months. The prices were too high for the portions. They charged us for plain rice. Our sodas were tiny and didn't come with refills. I wouldn't... More

Incompetent staff, menu items not actually available any longer, and the food ouch... it was tasteless to say the least. Overall an absolute disaster of a dinner.

I like this place a lot, I can't say a bad word about it. The waiters are very friendly and the place is done nicely. The food is great and I think it keeps everyone happy. I like that the place is unique and has a nice atmosphere.

The best part of this restaurant is by far the lunch buffet! They have a wide selection of food and during the busy hours, they do a very good job in keeping the buffet filled with food. The service is also excellent and the waiters are very attentive to to your needs,

This elegantly decorated restaurant ranks above any other Indian place we have visited, and we love Indian cuisine. The lunch is a wonderful value and a delicious experience, with a wide array of yummy choices accompanied by superior service. And, of course, the vegetarian in our group was thrilled. The only reason I didn't rank it as Excellent is that... More

Cannot beat the freshness and quality of this food. And even caters to the newbies by offering some things not too hot or spicy. I have only been to the lunch buffet, it really is outrageously delicious!

We went there for lunch and have been back for dinner. Prices are slightly on higher end. The buffet was decent nothing extraordinary. Average indian food. Nothing to rave about.

We have brought Indian friends here for dinner. Lunch is exceptiional, usually with at least 4 vegetarian dishes; on weekends it includes desserts. Naan is amazing; decor elegant. This is a lovely venue.

As some earlier reviewers commented, this restaurant can be pricey for a la carte which is the only option in the evenings. At lunchtime, however, it's a whole different story as their lunch buffet is an Indian food-lover's paradise. Salad, pickles, chutnies, samosas, dosas, kebabs, grilled tandoori to start - the selection varies from day to day - and then... More
