“Not your average boring buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Place attracts lots of the techie lunch-time crowd, with a mostly Microsoft crowd. The buffet varies its offerings, and is VERY vegetarian friendly. Even has free ice-cream cones (can't beat that).

Dinner was great, service excellent, and the dishes were well flavored and spiced.

“Indian people serving Indian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Butter chicken was one of the best eaten. Appetizer sampler great value. Pakoras were freshly cooked and spiced just right.Service was friendly and restaurant was tastefully decorated. Would eat here again.

“Good Buffet”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Average Indian fare but buffet is a good value. Chai tea and dessert (soft serve ice cream) are included. Nice wait staff but food is typical of most Indian restaurants. Easy to find and large booths makes this a good place to meet someone for lunch.

“The best mango lassi!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have eaten at many Indian restaurants but this one has the best mango lassi. The service is excellent and the food very tasty. There are usually many native Indian folks that says a lot. The chicken Tikka Masala is also excellent as are the pakoras.

“Love their food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have eaten here many times over the years and as a family of four we love the food. I have eaten Indian food in many states and this is the area's best. (their sauces/gravies are so good I could leave the meat and just dip the Naan bread and be happy)
