Foods were really bad first time. So visited second time hoping that I picked wrong items. Not much changed. Visited 3rd time with a friend and it was much worse. This place is very busy as I mentioned, most of the customers here are young Indian couples who don't know about the quality foods. I would prefer the other Indo... More

The first thing you think when you get there is, "wow, that's a lot of steep stairs to climb!" But the climb is worth it and the food is the best Indian cuisine I have eaten in the Bay Area since Sue's closed down in Mt. View. The buffet has everything and the food is prepared for non-Indians alike that... More

On the day we went for dinner (Valentine's day), only buffet was available though a la carte dinner is available on other days. We were offered complimentary champagne on arrival. The buffet spread was extensive - both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. I found chicken achari and nargisi kofta very good. Nargisi kofta was different from what I have eaten in India.... More

The food is superb. The Naan is hot and fresh and plentiful. It is a serve yourself buffet, yet the staff is very attentive. We arrived with a large party and they gave us the option of waiting to eat upstairs where the buffet is located vs eating in the downstairs dining room. We chose the latter and staff offered...

Hi guys, I went to couple of months ago with my friend for lunch buffet. We started eating and we found tofu in "mircha panner" curry. We double check with one of the worker and he said its panner. Now we paid bill and I asked to front desk person (lady) and manager was also there. So he started arguing... More

We got carry out from Turmeric and were very happy with our choices. The food was well prepared and ready when promised. The quality of food was excellent and the favors were as well. The naan was fantastic. I have a pretty high bar for Indian food so often I'm disappointed. Turmeric certainly satisfied my expectations and even exceeded them.... More

Having eaten there twice recently I can highly recommend this restaurant if you like Indian food. Not only is the menu varied with many dishes, such as Ragda pattys, that are not frequently seen in Indian restaurants around the country but the presentation is excellent and artistically beautiful. The chef's samosas are not only tasty but a real work of... More

A clean place in the heart of downtown serving authentic Indian food, with serene music playing in the background. The dinner buffet on weekends offers a numerous varieties of dishes to choose from - starting from chaat to desserts. The menu provides a lot of options for vegetarians as well.
