“Indian & Thai Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We had a buffet lunch here and while the ambience is severely lacking the food was plentiful and good. There were many choices on the $10 lunch buffet but they did not keep it restocked quickly enough for the more popular items. The interior was part gift shop and part restaurant and quite shabby, but with ample seating which stayed quite full. Staff was efficient but not very friendly, just down to business.

“Funky, comfy atmosphere. Tasty, Nepalese style Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

This is a FAMILY type joint. Seriously, kids might be running through the restaurant kicking soccer balls around and yelling. It happens. But it's really cozy, there are a number of booths, and the food is good.
It's a Nepalese family who've owned this restaurant FOREVER. So the "Indian" food has a decidedly Nepalese twist. Some may find it less sophisticated, but I like it. Some dishes are strictly Nepalese. My favorite is the momo platter, which consists of delightful vegetable dumplings served with a spicy tomato dipping sauce.
The saag paneer is great. It's served more "country style" than most, and the spice is perfect. The cheese naan is very good comfort food after a hike.
The only things I haven't enjoyed were the buffet (lacking spice), the korma (too sweet), and the gulab jamun dessert (just off-tasting). Everything else is great, and they have good beer on tap.

“Great food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

The buffet is worth the visit. The restaurant just celebrated 15 years, and that is not bad for an establishment in Nederland where restaurants come and go.
