We went there two days back with our friend who patronizes this restaurant on his recommendation for lunch buffet. Ambience is very very good for family and friends. Staff is quite friendly. As we are vegetarian, We cannot comment on non- veg dishes but since veg dishes taste good, we presume non-veg dishes should be yummy.

We went for dinner buffet and there was a wide variety. Food tasted very good and authentic. Ambiance was fantastic and they were kid friendly. One possible improvement is inclusion of chai in the buffet. Highly recommended.

This is one of the most authentic Indian restaurants. Nice variety of food for buffets and wide selection to choose from. Nice ambiance as well for family and friends. A little bit on the costlier side though.

I have been loyal customer to this restaurant for the past 8 years. Love the buffet spread Friday through Sunday. The restaurant owners are an elderly Indian couple who make sure customers get best food and service. They are very open to suggestions on menu, quality and service. The buffet includes salads, street food favorites, appetizers, 4-5 vegetarian entrées and... More

Good range of food in the buffet so everyone could find plenty to eat. The restaurant wasn't even busy but we still had to wait for drinks - beer and chai - service and plate removal!

After about two years I was in the area and looked forward to a visit to one of my favorite Indian Restaurants. It was busy and the selection of the Buffet was excellent. Most of the dishes I tried were disappointing and not up to the standard of my last visit. I found the dishes stale and bland - the... More

Fantastic selection for lunch buffet and weekend buffet. They offer a choice of over 30 dishes - including desserts. If what you select is not the greatest, just grab another plate and get a different dish. .
