Incredible buffet variety

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... read more

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

it was great walking in and not having to wait during the busy lunch time. Everyone got the buffet so you are brought to your seat, order your drink, and then head to the buffet. There was a lot of choices and the food was good. Unfortunately on that day my favorites as sag paneer in buttered chicken weren't on... More

I like the lunch buffet - extraordinary caul for the money! I wouldn't call this gourmet cooking, by any stretch, but it is really decent food. The buffet lets you sample lots of flavors and they're really busy at noon so the food is very fresh.

While passing through Madison I craved Indian tandoori food. Went to yelp and this place was highly recommended with some awards. After seeing the food I was like Who are these bland reviewers??? Cannot believe how poor the taste and texture of the food was. I am a foodie and this place didn't cut it. I make better food at... More

I haven't had much Indian cuisine but my friend who was with me has so we decided on the Maharaja Restaurant. I had to point to the drink on the menu that I wanted. Not a good sign. I ordered the Salmon Tikka and the waiter delivered Chicken Tikka. Because my friend and I had just shared a chicken appetizer,... More
