Good lunch Buffet

Lunch Buffet was very good. Warm food and it was refilled frequently. Chicken Tikka was very good. A mango lassi was available too. Busy lunch crowd. Good service with water and clearing plates.

It's got to be a good sign that a lot of Indian folks are always eating at this place! I've eaten here for years and I've always been greeted with extremely friendly service and a wonderful, reasonably priced buffet...not too hot, but definitely hot enough!! I've eaten at half a dozen or so Indian restaurants in the area and this... More

I have been here twice and both times had amazing food and service. The food is amazing. The first time I had the Chicken Tikka Masala which is definitely a way to judge good Indian restaurant and it was so, so good. The second time I had a the mixed grill which was even better. The spice is true so... More

I go here every now and then for dinner, but more frequently for the lunch buffet. Good authentic Indian food. It's about $10 for lunch, but you won't need dinner. Usually a good variety to choose from.

I eat a lot of vegetarian dishes so a good Indian restaurant I'm always on the lookout for. If I can't find a better one in the Malvern vicinity I may end up here once in a while while I'm on a project here for the next several months. It was suggested by the waitress that I try a vegetarian... More

In an area so well populated with authentic Indian restaurants, this just does not measure up. Limited choices. Some of the dishes tasted like they were not made fresh that day.

The food is good for a buffet and the staff is friendly. You can get in and out quickly if you have to rush back to work.

Food was below average Indian food. We ordered the bhindi masala, and all of the okra was bad. This dish was just unedible. The gobi manchurian was also not authentic, and seemed to be cooked in ketchup. The fried rice tasted dry and unsatisfactory. Stay away, and eat elsewhere.

Visited this location with my hubby who was working on a site. He found it on TRIPADVISOR!!! So I visited him in PA and we went to dinner at this restaurant.
