The price is a little bit expensive, but the buffet lunch is good, Indian authentic food, not to spicy and spice is mild, good to try!!

This is seriously good food, the kind you dream about. Every time my husband and I try to decide where to go in Guelph for dinner we end up here. The shrimp Vindaloo if fiery goodness.

We love the food here. It is the first Indian restaurant we tried and it is still the best for overall quality. There are lots of vegetarian choices to choose from. We used to drive from Acton for takeout in winter to get our fix.

Don't let the odd location fool you. Once you step in to this charming restaurant, be prepared to enjoy the most delicious Indian cuisine in Guelph. I usually have butter chicken with rice, naan and if I'm feeling very hungry I'll have pakora or samosa to start. We have had take out....it's not quite as nice and the portions don't... More

[This is my first review here, so if I go on too much, forgive me] You know how you often ignore what's nearest to you? Well, that's what happened with this place. I moved to Guelph and lived a few streets away from this little plaza, thinking nothing of it. Then I tried the takeout. I have to say that... More

The best Indian food I ever had. Have been there a couple times already (Some times I go twice a week) and every single time I am amazed by the great service and the wonderful food. This is my number 1 choice every time I want to go out for dinner. Already ordered take out, and it is just as... More

Went in Feb 2016 for the lunch buffet with a friend. As an Indian, I am picky were I eat Indian food from. I was not too impressed with the buffet this time around. Food was OK, it was cold.. Plus, I found it weird they had to bring naan to your table, which took time, and only brought 2... More

We've visited most Indian restaurants in town, and this is definitely the best. Very accommodating to dairy-free and gluten free diets, with a lengthy menu of food options, all we've tasted have been very good. Nice decor in an unassuming place in a strip mall off the Hanlon Expressway - kind of a hidden gem. When we think Indian or... More

I've been here a number of times in the last couple of months for their lunch buffet and I am never disappointed! What is nice is that the options change on each visit, preventing you from getting bored of the buffet. Their palak paneer was to die for and I'd been craving it for so long! I was also particularly... More
