Like most Indian places, I have ordered the buffet all but once or twice. I have been going here with some regularity since it opened as it is a short walk from where I live. The buffet is more plentiful and much fresher than when I first started going. Either they got new staff or started investing more into it... More

The bartender highly recommended this quaint India restaurant. The food selection was vegetarian, vegan along with other popular India dishes. At $18 we chose to eat from the buffet. The food selection was amazing. The food was hot and authentically prepared. The restaurant is located in a strip center and you wouldn't expect the quality of food from judging the... More

Decent lunch buffet with a good selection of tasty food. The place was not very busy and service was good.

The staff is good. But the food lacks quality and too much oil in the food. Didn't really enjoy the food. We spent close to $100 but the food was nothing special. Would not recommend.

naan had a lovely chewy texture which i love but was almost sour in taste. really disappoited by butter chicken, too runny and the thigh meat was not as nice as getting breast meat. but all in all it was a sort of good dinner.

"Walk right in, sit right down" don't wait in line - people are either paying or picking up their take-out orders. Nice basic buffet style Indian dinner with all the basic standard fares. Spacious, delicious, and quick. As well - there was no rush to hurry us out. I would definatley go again - until I got tired of the... More

A strange location in a nondescript strip mall but once you find the door a little bit of flavourful spicy heaven greets your senses. We have visited Charisma many times and haven't even looked at the menu as the buffet has something for everyone. A few of my favourites are vegetable korma, samosa, butter chicken, chick peas.... and the list... More

Recently expanded and renovated, Charisma of India features an extensive and excellent buffet of vegetarian and meat dishes. The atmosphere is dark, cozy and intimate. The menu itself promises everything you would expect and delivers tasty authentic cuisine with fresh naan made in-house at very reasonable prices. The service is attentive without hovering or up-selling the experience. The music is... More
