Visited on 3/23/2017 during lunch time. I wanted to try Indian food for the first time - while visiting CA for the first time. I decided a buffet would give me a selection. I was greeted at the door and explained it was my very first time. The server was GREAT! He took me to each did item and explained... More

This is a place where you'll have very good indian food. This is a buffet where you serve yourself. The place is clean and they bring often water (you need it if you decide to take the spicy food). The variety is good. You have chicken and also fish. We often go there when I come to California.

Had both their buffet and la carte menu items. They have daily lunch buffet and dinner buffet only on weekends. They had good variety of dishes but lacked in no of starters. I have seen more items on other places' buffet. Good mix of vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes but the dish that I liked the most was Mango Chicken.... More

Went on a Sunday night. They have a lunch buffet everyday but dinner buffet Friday, Saturday and Sunday only. Best time to go if you have never had Indian before, get a chance to try a variety of foods, meat,veggies, breads and deserts. Best Indian I have had in a long time.

We used frequent this place every week. but somehow on our last two visits we are not happy with food taste. I think the crowd's in Fremont come for a good deal with an important caveat! the food has to be really good. we have stopped going there and instead order for a variety of different Indian restaurants that are...

We love going here for the lunch buffet because of the taste and the variety of food. When we feel like Indian food, this is the place we meet. Everyone leaves full and very satisfied.

We went out here for a dinner buffet. Chola Poori was available which you won't see in most of the buffet. There were other few dishes which you won't see at other buffet restaurants. Taste was not that excellent compared to other restaurants. I would give average rating for taste. You can try it once.

Depends on the day and your luck. We have hosted parties, very regular for dinner but finally concluded that it all depends on the day. Somehow if there is an adjacent party booked the food quality suffers a lot. Service is just pathetic. They will even cheat you with fresh naan on top and few hours old ones below. Don't... More

Stopped in for lunch after landing at San Jose Airport. Great buffet, great variety, so much flavor, friendly service and a reasonable price. Highly recommend it!

Last month my sweetie took me to lunch at the Bombay Garden. Not so many people there as on a Saturday (the day I usually go). The food was good, though I changed my diet not to include chicken and there were many chicken dishes in the buffet. I still found many dishes without chicken. My appetite was sated. The... More
