The food is excellent. The lunch buffet is the best buffet in the Albuquerque-Santa Fe area. The dining room is small and intimate. But don't let that fool you. This is big time taste and authentic as it gets. The wait staff is attentive. One of the joys of Rio Rancho.

With some friends we enjoyed the diversity of the menu, sharing a variety of tasty dishes. Mix Grill Tandoori, the Lamb Curry, Nauratan Korma a mixed veggie dish and the Shrimp Tikka Marsala, all spiced to order, left no wishes open. Service was friendly and polite.

Local Hot Spot for this Cuisine. The Locals love this restaurant for their gatherings and flock there for lunch. A quick and quite place to meet. You can smell the food cooking before you arrive even with other restaurants in the same area

Visited after friends suggested it. Now I take others. Try the tandoori chicken wings, chilly chicken and Nepalese lamb momo, plus the traditional dishes. Lunch buffet is varied and delicious. Attentive wait staff.

The only Indian food place we need to know about here in Rio Rancho. I enjoyed everything they have to offer so far, can't state one thing that didn't become my favorite. Do yourself a fave an try their curry as soon as possible. Friendly location for couples, family and friends.
