This is our favorite Indian restaurant and we enjoy the lunch buffet every time we are there. The food selection is plentiful, including meat and vegetable dishes. They also change menu periodically. As summer time they provide mango ice cream which is delicious.

I've been there a few times for the lunch buffet. They have a wide variety of selections. Terrific for only $10.00 or so.

Although they are open for lunch and dinners the lunch is the delicious bargain. For a fixed very reasonable price you can sample a buffet of many of their dinner entrees at a fraction of the dinner cost. Lunch is usually crowded for the very...More

If you're craving Indian food, you must try Taj of Marin on 4th Street in San Rafael. Their lunch buffet, at $10.95, is a superb value (same offered at dinner, $16.95). The selections were plentiful, all beautifully displayed and constantly tended. Everything from salads to...More
