“The Best Indian Food in Indiana!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2010

Khana Khazana offers a fabulous Indian buffet during lunch and dinner - although you may also order directly from the menu. The food at the buffet is always fresh since there are always plenty of customers! The spice level varies from dish to dish and sometimes varies by which chef is working that day, however it is never overpowering. Some of the dishes available in the buffet also change, but there are a few staples that are always available. The servers are very attentive, filling drinks and removing used plates in a timely manner. Although I think the price is a bit high, it is still our favorite restaurant in the area!

“Lovely Indian Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2009

Khana has great food. The buffet is spicy, so newbies should be prepared. If you are unfamiliar with Indian food the chef or waiter will walk you through the buffet, and there are enough regulars that you can ask anyone while you're up there. Soup, basic salad and pickles, and your standard fare. Butter chicken is awesome, and they usually have at least 2 desserts. Buffet is at lunch and dinner, or you can order off the menu. Special dinner served at Diwali. Ask the chef, a lot of the dishes are gluten free (they cook chicken and breads in separate ovens, last I checked).

I've seen mixed reviews, mostly from people who have had stupendous Indian food from either coast, or who are from India, but for the middle of Hoosierland, the food here is great. One of my favorite places in town.

The restaurant is very near Purdue, so parking can be tough, especially during the school year. Park in front of the library or circle the block a few times to get a spot.

“Not bad buffet, but too spicy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2009

We liked their buffet, but it is becoming too spicy every weak. They have large varieties of vegetarian dishes.
