“Disappointing Buffet”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2013

We love Indian food and were looking forward to trying out this place which is located in Chandler and not Mesa. When we arrived on a Saturday evening we were the third customers there. The place was rather empty but service was not very good. The buffet food seemed to be recycled lunch food because it was not very warm. The fresh naan was delicious but the rest of food might have been better if the meat dishes were hot and not barely warm. Thankfully we did not get sick from the food. We'd like to return and try this place again since other reviews suggest a better dining experience can be had.

“Great Indian food! Place is in Chandler now.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant has moved to Chandler now. They are no longer in the Mesa address. The new place is a lot bigger than the old one and is actually nicer. We had a buffet dinner in September and I was totally stuffed! Everything I ate was fantastic! If you love Indian food or just food in particular, you need to come to this place! Delicious!

“Weekend lunch buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Nice place if you love Indo-Pak food like kababs, biriyani, paya and their desserts like firni are excellent. Overall the service and ambiance is decent, can be better!

“Wonderful New Location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2012

This is a beautiful place. You walk in and the smell is wonderful and the food is even better. Full of flavor. Went on 6/28/2012 - the lamb was tender - the flavors were spot on - the rice was sweet and savory and worked well with the beef. The Bread there is amazing. Best place I have found in a long time. Service is a little under par, but they were helpful and we didn't feel forgotten. If you are looking for something new and out of the Chinese / Mexican rut that is all over the valley - This Is The Place To Try!!!
