Excellent buffet for a quick meal.

First time trying Indian cuisine. This buffet had many offerings and the waitstaff was very attentive and friendly. Perfect place for a good quick meal. Hope to return soon !

I love Indian food. I travel to India for business regularly, about twice a year, for weeks at a time. I've eaten Indian food at fancy restaurants, guest houses, people's homes, cafeterias and roadside stands. It's always good. Even in the US, and right here in the Capital District, most Indian food is, if not great, then at least tasty.... More

Everything seemed to have to much oil. I had a dough cauliflower that taste like fish I was very offended because Im a vegetarian. A lot of green pea dishes and not the tradition chick peas. Very disappointed. Not going back.

I love this restaurant. It is very small and probably has 12 tables only but their food is excellent. It is a perfect place to have lunch if you are in a hurry. I have been there lots of time and never left disappointed. Very good food if you like Indian food.

--try the weekend buffet. Food is fresh and authentically Indian--don't expect gourmet Indian, but for the price and quality you will be very pleased. I go there once a week for the buffet!

Visited at lunch with co workers, there was a large variety of offerings for the lunch buffet, all was hot, fresh and so good!. The owner was happy to explain to any of us that didn't already know, what went in to each dish. We ate outside, it was a beautiful day, and the delicious food made it even better!

Prices for the buffet are so reasonable that I often feel guilty for not paying more. Delicious healthy options are plentiful on the lunch and dinner buffet. The owner and staff are eager to please.
