Great Indian Buffet

A colleague and I ate lunch at Flavors. It is a purely Indian restaurant that has a large, flavorful luncheon buffet. We got here just in time, for within ten minutes of our arrival, the place was packed. The buffet line move quickly, and when a container emptied, it was quickly refilled. The... read more

This was my first time eating there for the lunch buffet and I was very disappointed. The food was bland and the bread was tasteless. Nothing special, just ordinary. The food on buffet line was not displayed well and not easy to access. The food at Mother India restaurant (3572 Leavenworth St, Omaha, NE) is much better. But Mother India... More

The menu had items from all over India and the food was really good. All meals come with crackers and chutney before the main dish is served. The food was really good but it was brought out at different times and the wait was really long. There is no alcohol served either so there wasn't much to do while we... More

My wife and I have been going to Flavors since Rakesh opened a few years ago. Best Indian food in Omaha back then, especially during their lunch buffet. Then the fire in late 2012 closed them up and it seemed like renovations were taking forever. Fast forward a year later at reopening and Rakesh had completely remodeled the place with... More

Their buffet has one of the best assortment of Indian foods - makes it so easy to try something you've never had before just to test it - and go back for more! Everything was very tasty from the rather spicy soup to the not-at-all dry tandoori chicken, yummy. Service, even for the buffet, was friendly. It's almost like being... More

I have eaten here several times. The food is absolutely amazing. The icing on the cake is the service. These folks treat you like royalty. The atmosphere is very modern. Very highly suggested!!

Finally. It has reopened, and is much improved. The space is now sleek and modern. But the food remains as good as ever. I have only eaten there for lunch since the reopening, so I can't comment on their night menu options. Lunch, as at most Omaha Indian restaurants, is served buffet style. There are a wide variety of dishes,... More

I have been to Flavors many times and have never been disappointed. Weekend buffet has a vey good variety of meat and veggies. I have had no problems with the weekday buffets either, only a few less items but still better than most of the others in town. Food is authentic and tastes good! Staff is very courteous and go...

We wanted to go to Mother India, but with the place full, we ended up at Flavors instead. The guy took our order for samosas and came back with papad and pakoras-- free of charge.. The night was starting to look up. Both me and my friend aren't heavy eaters, so we decided on sharing an entree- Lamb Korma. When... More

We've eaten at Flavors many times, and never been disappointed. The buffet at lunch is good, and the dinners in the evening are great. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome (we have gotten to try free appetizers on various occassions, although its not standard) and the prices are very reasonable.
