“Well worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Having just been to this restaurant as a couple and eating the all you can eat buffet this review is hot off the press.It is located by the side of the A64 York-Scarborough road about equidistant from both Malton and York. Just before the A64 becomes a dual carraigenway on its way east towards Malton at Harton.
For £11.95 you get a pickle tray with all the usual suspects, then they bring you a sizzling mixed starter to die for, After a well earned rest you then attack at least 12 dishes of various spiciness from very mild to medium(they say its hot but it is medium but enough to taste) Meat dishes, Keema and fish dishes as well as several vegetarian options. A couple of nice (bit watery) Cobra beers and very attentive excellent servers you cannot go wrong'
Probably the best buffet meal I have had in a long time. Living fairly local I have been here many times before but only ventured to the buffet a couple of years ago and then was not impressed. My how it has changed. I can only suggest you try it yourself, go in midweek and notice firstly how busy it is(sign of good food) and how many Asian families pass by to eat there- another indication of the quality, The dishes are kept warm under cover, and replenished very quickly. The staff are very good (I know the authentic dress is a little kitsch) but it is worn well and the staff should be applauded for their enthusiasm. Defo worth a try and make your own mind up.

“FANTASTIC FOOD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Too Say that this place is in the middle of nowhere on the A64 between Scarborough and York it takes some beating!!! I have always been weary of road side dinner, guess its the stigma attached to truck stops and greasy spoons...... but say sat i was extremely impressed with the recent make-over is quite a understatement. lavish toilets, supple leather couches, extravagant interior. To top it all the buffet menu priced at £11.99 per person is ridiculously cheap. I presumed that the menu would be limited and basic............ oh NO poppadoms and home made chutney lime pickle rita and onion mixes.. followed by a mixed sizzling platter consisting of tandoori chicken, chicken filet tikka, fish rosti potato, and keema sausage. By this point i was already full before managing to squeeze a bit of everything from the "all you can eat" buffet bar which had 2 different rices and 12 different curry dishes ranging from mild to hot along with vegetarian options spinach fish and paner to name a few. I am only sorry that i couldn't demolish the naan breads that where freshly baked Peshawar kemma, garlic, and a new one to me cheesy garlic naan. Thanks so much for your hospitality as that was also second to non OUTSTANDING!!!

“Brilliant place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We were driving back from Scarborough today 13th July, the traffic was really slow so we decided to come off and eat at this restaurant. This was our second visit, it was just how we remembered, the food, staff,atmosphere was impeccable. This is not your run of the mill place to eat it is luxury lots of luxurious touches around the place and the toilets are so clean. We did not have the buffet, chose to have individual dishes the curries were excellent all different, but all very tasty. When we are in the area again we will definitely visit. We want one of these restaurants in Rotherham we would never be away. Look forward to our next visit. Gareth and Maggie

“Great customer service, Buffet average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

Great place, comfortable, people was very welcoming. Staff was very helpful and reasonable for the money. Buffet was very limited, the main menu maybe will be a better choice :)
