4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

Restaurant isn't fancy but the food is delicious and the service is good. We will definitely eat here again when in the area.

“Very Good Indian Buffet at Lake Tahoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014

Stopped in this restaurant (adjacent to Quality Inn) for lunch just as it opened for lunch. The lunch buffet includes the staples of an Indian Buffet: lentals, chicken dishes (and tandori) as well as an excellent chick pea dish. Lunch buffet price was reasonable and the mango lassi is among the best we've had.

“Big disappointment for lunch buffet”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

The buffet was fairly decent, although certainly not the best Indian food I've tasted. The restaurant itself was dirty and certainly could do with being cleaned, and the tablecloths were filthy, the waiters white uniforms were filthy, and if that wasn't enough to put us off ever going back, then the visit to the restroom afterwards was. Rarely have I seen a restroom so filthy. I shudder to think what the kitchen was like. Won't be going back.

“worst experiance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

We went with the family and found Indian restaurant in the ad. Exited and decided to go and have the spicy indian food. In the beginning, went wash our hands and thats mistake we have done. The rest room is terrible and stinks. Which completely changed our mood and could not able to enjoy food much. Finally, we ended up with completely dissatisfaction.

“Decent Indian restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

This restaurant is decent. Food is good. Not too oily and not too heavy. But it can get pretty busy during holiday long weekends. When i went (without a reservation), there was a queue of thirty people waiting. So, be prepared to wait if you dont have a reservation.
