We started off with several appetizers. My favorite was the fried bread. For entrees we kind of mixed matched. The... read more

We decided to go to lunch and the price for the buffet was too high for the quality and quantity of food that was available. For about $10 a person (we don't know because we did not receive pricing for the food or drinks)nee were not impressed. We arrive in plenty of time before closing and the buffet was not... More

We have been there 8 times in the last one year and have never been disappointed. The non-vegeterian choice is better than the vegetarian. We were served by Rakesh most of the times we have been there. He is very hospitable. Kashmiri Lamb is awesome, Lamb Biryani is good, good choice for flat bread (nan/roti) and Poppadum's are free.

This is my first experience with Indian cuisine. My mouth was not ready for it. The minced lamb naan was delicious. The naan was so delicate and the minced lamb and garlic paired perfectly. The entrée dishes were a combination of so many spices that my mouth went into a complete overload. I have never experience so many flavors in... More

Vegetable Samosas flavorful spicy and perfect. Lamb Kashmiri the best I've eaten. Spicy with tender moist lamb. Both kabob spicy moist and very flavorful. Raita perfect and Kemah naan perfect. Pricing excellent and service perfect. Definitely a keeper restaurant.

I don't know what Indian food is supposed to taste like, but it is like heaven. They have buffet style food during lunch which is great for first timers.
