“Good lunch buffet, good value.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2011

I would second the prior reviewer. Everything they have on the buffet is what you expect on the typical Indian menu (Tandoori chicken, sag paneer, naan, etc.), not quite as spicy as you might get if it were not buffet and were made to order, but if you wanted it spicier here I am certain they would make it for you. Very good service, very responsive staff. I have been here many times and found the food well worth the trip given its location. Of the Indian restaurants in Austin, this one's got the best bang for the buck.

“Average to Good - Nothing Spectacular”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2010

i've eaten Indian food all over the U.S., Scotland, England, and Mumbai. So, i've eaten at quite a few Indian restaurants. While this one is not bad, and some items are good, there was not one item I chose that was excellent or even very good. I felt that the owners wanted to dial up the spices, but perhaps it wouldn't go over very well in Round Rock. The flavors were good but dulled.

The plus side: the lunch buffet had an excellent variety. The vegetable dishes were the best I tried. The chicken dishes were quite dry -- each of them. The goat dish was very bony and tough to eat, but the flavor wasn't bad.

The desserts were also varied and good.

Overall, it's not a bad choice if you're craving Indian food but I wouldn't go out of my way to get to it. The person from London: try Dhonia's on Tollington (by Finsbury Park). Excellent service, food, and prices.
