Our family went here for dinner on a Mon. night. The food was good. We were a little surprised that Naan was not included, but well worth the extra $$. My Mango Chicken was tasty, though I would have preferred more chicken. Portions were good. Rice was excellent that came with meal. Would eat here again, especially on Fri or... More

Very good food at bargain prices. We especially like the lamb vindaloo which had large chunks of tender meat and sauce was spicy and not too hot. The location is in a strip mall so not very fancy. Service was fine but there seemed to be only one host/server working at dinner on a Thursday night. This was fine since... More

We're from Scotland, now living in Upstate NY and really miss Indian food. We had the dinner buffet on a Friday night and loved it. Great selection of dishes, friendly staff and fresh, tasty food. If we're in the area again, we'd definitely go back.

My friend who is actually from India brought me to this place and said it is one of the places that serve authentic Indian cuisine. We tried the lunch buffet and there was not one dish that I didn't try and love! Definitely worth a try if you are interested in Indian cuisine.

Just arrived in Ballston Spa and my son wanted to try this restaurant. The Palak Paneer was delicious (that is one of my favorite dishes anywhere) and the chicken vindaloo was wonderful (spicy but not extreme). The vegetable samosa were a little more greasy than I like, but that was the only negative of the whole evening. I am definitely... More

While visiting with my wife and 4 year old daughter, we shared samosas and chicken soup to start. Both were flavorful. For our entrees we shared the chicken korma and lamb masala. Neither entree was well seasoned, which was okay for my daughter's sensitive and wife's in adventurous palate. With an order of naan, we walked out for less than... More

I just went there for the lunch buffet and it was absolutely delicious! And I mean really, really good. I had to really stop myself from getting more and more! They have a generous selection of warm food, a lot of it vegetarian-friendly. The hosts are very kind and available. I'll definitely be making this a weekly visit!

Easy access from I-87 has always made this a good stop for an inexpensive Indian meal but the new owner, Raman, has put together some amazing dishes on the new weekend evening buffet: traditional bread, appetizers, mulligatawny soup, and well-done meat offerings like tandoori chicken and chicken masala, but also more exotic dishes like goat or mango chicken and an...

I love Indian food. While this is not gourmet or quite the quality of dishes made to order, the buffet is consistently good. This kind of food just holds up better in steam trays than Chinese.

I'm new to Indian food and have only tried one other local buffet. What put this meal over the top was the chili chicken and the friendly, outgoing owner/chef. Everything on the buffet is excellent. Other noteworthy dishes were the chicken tikka, vegetable korma, and the famous rice pudding. I'll stop whenever life takes me through Clifton Park during lunch... More
