Excellent authentic Indian

Place doesn't look like much from the street, but don't be fooled. Food was excellent. I had a nice glass of Malbec, Garlic Naan, Lamb Vindaloo and Rice. Service was friendly and accommodating. Food came fast and hot. Portions were more than I could eat in one sitting. Asked for the Vindaloo to... read more

I had taken my daughter here for her first Indian food. After reading the reviews I figured it would be a good place to start. But it was not. The food in the buffet line was overly spicy for us simple folks. To make matters worse, the wait staff didn't even attempt to offer any solution. They essentially said, this... More

This used be the my favorite spot in town. My wife and I used to come here a lot. While the service is still okay recently though we've noticed a change in the quality of the food. The past two times I have been there the food has been very dry and some of the meats such as the lamb... More

Generous and value-priced buffet at lunch featuring both vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. Delicious dinners from the menu, generous portions, efficient and courteous service. We will definitely visit again.

Very nicely prepared Indian food, brought out to the buffet table in small portions, so that the food remains fresh. A good assortment of dishes, not too spicy (for the American palate). Prompt service

I've been here twice now and haven't been disappointed. I'm still relatively new to Indian food, but I've not been disappointed by anything I've had here. Lots of flavor and spice, not too much heat. You're mileage may vary on the last one. If you don't know what you'd like, go for the lunch buffet. At around $10(without tip or... More

Milan has been a favorite for quite a while. The absolute best thing here is the buffet, which is served only during the lunch time. Food is very delicious. But beware, Indian food tastes great going in! But coming out is the only cost you'll have to pay...

I was hesitant about this restaurant, because I've been to some super expensive Indian restaurants before that weren't all that good. This restaurant had great atmosphere. It was reasonable, no more expensive than an Applebee's. The food was great! We took home leftovers and it was so yummy that I had it for breakfast the next day. Definitely get Naan... More

When I go to the JAG School, I go here. My wife doesn't like Indian food, so when alone, I eat some Indian. I have always liked their food. I tried some Josh Rogan Goat, and it was excellent. I always get the King Fisher beer, and it never fails to delight. I always have a good experience here.
