“2014 New Year review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Last 2 years were fun, but this year's New Year 2014 party was lackluster and lacked additional resources for fun. The Snacks variety was good but the Dinner options for Vegetarians was severely limited. As usual, the Ice cream machine remained broken (as was last year). It was a normal celebration event with food and some frolic (dance floor), but not enthusiastic enough to think of coming back this year.

“lots of choice in buffet but no class”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

2-3 extra dollars but the quantity / choices in lunch buffet are too many. Service is great. A true entrepreneur mailman started this place. Hope the sons can keep it up. My turkish boss loved their chicken and provoking indian songs on the TV during lunch. Don't go there with a female boss or colleague, especially if they are into women's rights. They won't like what they see on TV.

“Flavorful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

Had dinner buffet which included many options. Opens for dinner at 5:30 & we got there then, so food was hot & fresh. Very flavorful. Ranges from spicy hot to mild. Staff ranged from friendly to non-communicative (language barrier?), but service was efficient. Price is quite reasonable for all you can eat!

“Buffet for dinner not a good option”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013 via mobile

The food sat too long. Staff texting. Lunch time probably would have been better. Potatoes not cooked in one dish. Nan bread was too flacky and not moist. Tandori chicken was best item on buffet. Decor is old. Needs an overhaul.

“Value for money buffet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013 via mobile

Buffet spread was great. Went there with friends and family for lunch. They had at least 25 items ranging from north -south Indian and they also had chaat and fusion varieties. The lunch buffet was priced at $12 and I thought it was value for money. The ambience is good and can accommodate for large groups.
