Sunday evening buffet is really something to behold. Great dishes and flavors and variety constantly being changed. Butter chicken and lamb curry are my favorites.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2009

We wanted a simple, quick meal and got freshly-cooked tasty and authentic Indian food. Surroundings are simple but OK.
