“Awesome Buffet !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

The reno's that Chef Thiru have done are awesome. The buffet is amazing, the chutney tree is varied, so you can have a taste of about 8 different flavours. From start to finish it was great, super selection, the chili chicken is amazing. I will for sure be back. Oh, and the best mulligatawny soup, the best!

“Fantastic and healthy soups! Great on a rainy and cold evening! :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2011

The restaurant does not look like much, but their soups are absolutely fantastic. The service was also very warm and hospitable. We will definitely come back... soon.
We are eager to try their weekday lunch and/or weekend dinner buffet.

“Moderate in the extreme”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2011

We've only ever gone for the Saturday evening buffet. We've been several times. We always get a take out in the polystyrene tray. First couple of visits, the food was pretty good and then it went down hill pretty rapidly. Meat with lots of fat and gristle and very watery tasteless sauces so typical of many Indian restaurants in this part of Canada. It was disappointing. Little effort had gone into the dishes leaving them with no flavour. After all flavour is really the essence of Indian cuisine. Buffet is over priced a little even when it's good.

“Best Indian food in KW”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2011

Delicious and fresh authentic indian food. I have been to the majority of indian restaurants in KW and this one is by far the best. The ingredients are the best quality, and meals are always prepared perfectly. The menu has something for everyone and they can customize your orders in terms of taste. They make and jar their own sauces for you to take home as well so you can make your own. Delicious. The owners truly care about the food they serve. Also, Classic Indian is not as expensive as the average indian restaurant.
