Finally- a restaurant that actually, happily accommodates your spice level without being insulted! Love the food (highly recommend their vegetable korma and samosas-not spicy), the occasional cocktail, and the service! Water glass constantly refilled without having to ask. Excellent choice located in a shopping center that could use "updating" and rented stores- don't let that discourage you! A few years... More

This is the place to come for Indian food for sure. The lunch buffet is just like the places down in Queens, lots of variety and well prepared. Dinner was just as good, but menu only (lots to choose from).

I reluctantly tried this place for a second time because my wife wanted to try it one more time. The appetizer was great. The service was great. Then I ordered the curry goat and literally got a bowl full of bones! There was almost no meat at all. There was lots of sauce. The bowl was overflowing but full of... More

We love Indian food and the buffet here was just what we wanted. Each dish had a separate wonderful flavor, not just a muddled curry taste. The restaurant is clean a the staff are very conscientious and pleasant.

We usually go all the way to New Paltz for Indian food but this place is local so we decided to give it a try.To make it short and sweet we did not get what we ordered. I can't blame it on them being busy because there was only us and one other table. We ordered one spicy lamb, one... More

I love this place. The service is always great. I have been for both the lunch buffet and dinner. The food is delicious. I just went there for dinner last night and I can not wait to go back again.

Lunch buffet on a Sunday. The food was a tad old, Chicken tikka masala had no chicken. No special rice, only plain fried rice.Payasam was spoiled and sour. Nothing special for the increased price.Were there at 12.30 pm and the food, tandori chicken, was hard and not edible.Disappointed might not return.

We have dined at this restaurant several times since the restaurant opened. We like Indian food and could not wait for the restaurant to open. The food is very good. My lamb biranyi was filled with lots of lamb, unlike some restaurants, where the lamb dishes have a few pieces of lamb. The rice was very aromatic and had a... More

I was a little nervous about eating here since most of the reviews were of the buffet, but we really enjoyed our dinner. The waiter asked if we wanted spicy and we said yes -- and it was. The tandoori chicken was sizzling hot, pakoras were crisp and not greasy. Service was a bit slow -- took a long time... More
