“Good ambience.But poor quality food”

Went for buffet in the afternoon
Very poor service.
Descent option in alchocl .
Food is mostly Americanized... Not much of Indian flavour.

“Lunch Buffet ....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

The lunch buffet is a great way for starters who are trying something new ... the server you have to wave them over or if they are just standing near the buffet serving line to tell them what you need.. it does get pretty busy during lunch time ...

“The worst food i ever had in my life”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

we bought 20$ coupon of 40$ value for the same restaurant through Groupon. On the day of our visit to san antonio i ordered for corn and chicken soup and spicey chicken chettinad curry with rice, what i got as soup was, in some curry water few corn kernels and chicken peices, with a pich of salt more. We didn't like the taste at all, none of us had that , we kept it aside and waited for chicken. After some time my chicken curry came, Oh my God I cant belive, i was yuck. In water tomato onion and chicken peices with lot of mustad, not properly boiled, no salt and chilly at all. it was too costly too. I was not able to eat atleast one spoon of rice. Actually it ruined my day like anything :(
