“Superb Fresh Lunch Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

I went here with a work colleague today for buffet lunch and it was an extremely good experience. The food is fresh and the selection is very good. The staff are friendly and the restauarnt is bright and clean.
The buffet was reasonably priced and they accept credit cards too, but not AmEx (then again, who does these days?).
Highly recommended for lunch.This is a BYOB restaurant and I will certainly consider using it in the evening too.

“The best Indian Food in the area!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We ordered take out for 4 people for lunch and were suprised at the autenticity and Tastyness of the this food. Simply the best Inidain Food in the area. There is a well stocked Grocery store in Exton as well. Take out is in high demand at both locations so order 30 minutes ahead at least.

“Very Good Very Fresh Indian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

We have had dinner and lunch at this restaurant a number of times and have always enjoyed our meals. The service is excellent; attentive, efficient and very friendly. The lunch buffet is wonderful and a huge bargain with a large variety of well prepared dishes. If you want to sample a lot of Indian dishes this is the way to do it.

Dinner is also very good and the menu has a good number of items that cover the range of seafood, lamb, chicken and vegetarian dishes. They have some excellent soups and appetizers along with many naan and other bread offerings. Our dinner started off with complimentary papadum and chutneys which were very nice. The dishes are served in individual warming/chafing dishes, which not only keep the food warm but look very nice. The food is prepared to order and is very fresh and very well prepared. The flavors are excellent and vary from dish to dish, which makes for a very good and interesting meal. The portions are generous and all dishes were served with plentiful basmati rice. We always leave stuffed and looking forward to coming back. My children LOVE the mango lassi!!

The restaurant is clean but the decor is a bit worn, but do not let that dissuade you from eating here. The food is very good and this is one of the better Indian restaurants in the area. You will not regret a meal here. Menu highlights for my family include the coconut soup (sweet and satisfying), chicken tikka masala (an Indian classic), lamb pishawri (really excellent) and bayngan bhurtha (a great way to have eggplant). Their naan is light and very tasty!

“excellent food any time of day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2012

We have been here numerous times, on our way to the theater. The luncheon buffet is stupendous--what variety! We always find something we've never tried. There was a mango dessert that was incredible, and I'm not usually a dessert person. I asked for it, even though it was not on the dinner menu, and they brought some to me. The one tip is that for dinner you must not be in a hurry. The wait staff gets overwhelmed, and cannot process things quickly. In the evening, we like the two-person dinner menu, which gives a good variety at a good price.

“Very good customer service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2011

The food came out hot and was delicious. It wasn't as spicy as I like it though. It was "American" Spicy, which is basically a lick of a kick.
