We continue to eat here regularly, usually on the weekends. We enjoy the atmosphere, the diverse company, the friendly staff, and the good food at the buffet. The Sambar is always good, even though it varies from week to week. I wish they would have my favorites (Palak Paneer and Dal Makhani) more regularly, but whatever they have for vegetarians... More

This was the 6th or 7th time I have been to this restaurant and it seems to range from ok to good. This time was just OK. There is another Indian Restaurant in town that seems to be consistently better than this one.

Go for the buffet. Significantly better deal. The food is fresh and wonderful. It's a welcome relief from bland Midwest tastes. I'm from Cali and used to full flavor, so I must say that the food is definitely catered to the local pallet. I really didn't find anything terribly spicy, so if you have a sensitive pallet, this place will... More

When my wife and I entered for dinner at almost 6pm the place was empty, silent, and a bit odd. But... it smelled fabulous! After a bit people started showing up to dine in and pick up and they turned on some Indian music and the place came alive a little. It could use an aesthetic makeover for sure. For... More

Toned down heat for local tastes, but otherwise great Indian food. We had the buffet near the end of service on a Sunday afternoon, and we enjoyed it thoroughly.

As a lover of Indian food I can tell you that this is the best Chicken Tikka Masala I've had since leaving the UK (where the dish was invented) Always great service here, very attentive. Really great place!

Flavourful and just the right spiciness. The vegetarian dishes are plentiful. Appetizers are large and easily shareable among 2-3 people. Staff are solicitous and helpful. The location is hidden, it is in a strip mall, but you need to drive all around the strip to find it. Good to see more Indian restaurants in Fargo, but this one still a... More

Amazing service from everyone we interacted with. Extensive and authentic menu. Tons of choices for drinks as well. The dishes we tried were amazing (briyani, naan, and others). Wish we lived in Fargo so we could come back soon.
