Stopped in for the luncheon buffet. Always like the food here, but this time the chicken dishes were little too spicy for me. Vegetables were excellent and service outstanding. Loved the Kheer (rice pudding dessert). Will be back for dinner where I can specify how much spice I want. Good value.

I had never been to an indian restaurant. I was apprehensive about the food but I was pleasantly surprised. The food was great. Loved the buffet so I could try different foods and see what I liked. I liked almost everything to my surprise. I will be going again.

Quality Indian food and very authentic. Good value and nice atmosphere. When I am craving Indian food it is one of the three places that I consider in Albany,

This is one of our favorite local restaurants. The food is excellent, fresh and well prepared. The service is good and always cordial. The food choices are many, and they will accommodate special resists. Good choice always.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with this restaurant. The food is very well prepared and service is polite and prompt. But the level of spice is very mainstream-almost bland. For appetizers we ordered vegetable samosa with onion chutney, which is usually very hot, but here it was rather mild. One of our main dishes, Lamb Madras, was advertised as hot... More

This was my go-to place for a fun lunch with my son when he was in college. Great selection on the buffet, something for everyone. Always fresh and well seasoned. Especially love the vegetable dishes and the tandoori chicken. Great raita too.

I have eaten here repeatedly with all my family members and many of my friends. The food here is excellent and the lunch buffet is an excellent value. I have never had a bad meal here and I have eaten here at least twenty times.

This is the best Indian and Pakistani food in the Albany NY area and possibly all of Upstate NY. Service is prompt and friendly. My wife and I go at least once a month.
