I reviewed this restaurant a couple years ago, and at the time I thought it was the best Indian in Columbia (despite some odd signs and policies about wasting food). Since then, first the prices went up, then the food got worse, and now the buffet has disappeared, replaced by an odd system that seems much more wasteful. Recently, I... More

I do not like the new format at all. The combinations are odd. I would rather pay more and eat what I would like to eat from the buffet.

Had enjoyed Spice Junction for several years but they no longer offer a self serve all you can eat buffet. Under the new business model, they serve you "combos" which limit your choices and there are no return trips to the buffet unless you pay another $9.99. No thanks. I'll go to Bombay Grill or Village of India and have... More

I would advise customers to search for other places to eat Indian food. I strongly recommend that you avoid this restaurant. The food was not how it should be and it was cross contaminated. My friend has gluten allergies so we asked what food choices on the menu would be suitable for her to eat. She ordered the Chana pindi... More

Anytime someone suggest Indian food I recommend this place. Food is always hot and fresh. The naan is yummy. The only downside would be its just buffet but good selection of food on the bar.

This place is a real gem hidden in a rundown shopping strip off Hwy 1. The food is always delicious, and the naan is delivered hot and fresh to your table. The owners are always courteous and accommodating, despite having to deal with some of the idiots that populate Lexington and seep into West Columbia. Punjabi Dhaba was a strong... More

We frequent many Indian Buffets around town so decided to give this one a try. We arrived for the lunch buffet at 150. 40 minutes before they close. The buffet was full of food and 2 guests in the dining room. She informed us that we could not eat in her establishment, but we could take some togo for 10.99... More

The food is not too spicy (for the American palette). We love the food and wonderful service. When I broke my leg a year ago, the owner gave me extra assistance. That was very kind. Their food is wonderful.
