“Excellent food, reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

I love this place. Located within a few blocks of Wills Eye Institute where I have monthly appointments, it is my go-to lunch establishment. I am a vegetarian, so the fact that all but four buffet items are veggie is a big bonus. I love the samosas, dahl, tikka masala, and at least five other offerings. The owner delivers freshly-made nan right to the table, too. Atmosphere is quiet and relaxing. Can't beat San Samosa for value at this price!

“Indian Buffet East of Broad Street”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

One of the closest Indian Buffets located east of Broad Street along Walnut Street. Food is not bad but it can definitely improve especially if I had to compare it with the UCity Indian buffets like Sitar India and New Delhi.

“Odd”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

While the food was edible this is one of the strangest restaurants I have ever eaten in. The served had no interest in taking our order, had to find him for the bill - was he really hiding? Do not recommend.

“Food was decent. Service cold”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The food here was just about average with mostly vegetarian dishes. The guy managing the place was one cold fish. Didn't seem like he wanted to be there, was actually a little stand-offish and just didn't seem to care. Will definitely not be going back.

“excellent vegetarian buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

great way to try the many tastes of vegetarian indian cuisine that allowed us to try new things. Nice casual atmosphere. Good price at $12.99 for Sunday dinner. They did have a few meat options and full menu available.
