Good Indian Cuisine, Great Menu Selection

The smarter half and I walked here from our hotel and were not disappointed. The menu was truly amazing, with a number of dishes I've never had nor heard of. I wanted a sampler! The Palak Paneer was very good, not the best I've ever had. My wife LOVED her Chicken Jalfrazie Curry, one of many... read more

This is one of our favorite restaurants in the Madison area. We have tried nearly all of the Indian restaurants in Madison and we find that this is our favorite and we keep coming back. We always do the lunch buffet so that we can sample the great variety of dishes they offer. Every time there is something new we... More

I've eaten here many times over the years. I really enjoy the variety on the buffet. It's nice that it changes daily with a few items always there. You can also order off the menu. The food is always great! The Masala chai is the best around! The staff are so nice and friendly. I love this place.

The food was good & their servers were very nice. The menu is large, so there are plenty of options. Great place for a nice Monday night out!

The lunch buffet is delicious & reasonable and the staff remember us each time we come in. My husband loves the lamb curry and I enjoy the many vegetarian dishes.

Decided to try the restaurant based on a review in a local magazine. Even better than the review. Staff is prompt and helpful and food was marvelous. Best biryani I have had. They have an extensive menu and also offer a luncheon buffet.

My dining companion was vegetarian, and was delighted to discover that there was an entire buffet area full of vegetarian dishes, mostly north Indian.. A second area had meat dishes and some south Indian food. There were two kinds of soup, a big platter of spiced, roasted chicken (chiken tikka), and multiple dessert items. All were good and most seemed... More

The food was OK first of all. AND our server was nice. However, we went to pay using our restaurant.com certificate and the owner--- who was at the cash register was as rude as any restaurant worker I've ever experienced in my life. We had the buffet and had planned on using the certificate. I had looked all over the... More

We took in the noon buffet on a Saturday and the place was packed, even at a quarter after 1. It only started to clear out by 1:45 indicating the popularity of this place. Tops is the variety of offerings at the buffet--more than twice as many as we've had at any other Indian restaurant and we've been to many.... More
