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.

The buffet is always wonderful. They have a good variety of choices and the restaurant is very clean. We just love their food! We took our daughter, who is gluten free, and that worked very well. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

There are a lot of choices for Indian food in Sunnyvale, but this one is absolutely the best. Fresh ingredients, lots of choices, reasonable price. It's often crowded at lunch, so get there before noon. Or go for dinner, which also is a buffet, fairly rare in the area.

- Food is quite good. - Buffet has some unique food items that I've not seen in other Indian buffets. - Restaurant is larger than it looks with an upstairs and an upstairs backroom for large parties. - Staff are friendly and helpful. - You may want to park in the mall parking lot (near Macys) and walk over to...

Turmeric offers buffet for lunch and dinner. The spread is pretty much the same but the food is very good. I would visit the place without a second thought. The Dessert spread could have been better.

I've been here 3 or 4 times now for the lunch buffet. The variety of dishes is immense and the cost is one of the lowest around. I find the food quite tasty. Easy walk from Caltrain if you are so inclined.

I have visited Turmeric several times. It is very pleasant and I have always had a good meal (had both menu and buffet) with fairly good service - a little slow at times but always responsive when asked, and staff are readily available. Only downside is that nearby parking can be very tight.

It is just below average ... items are not that good ... some are even tasteless ... visited at least 3 times, each time thought that the present visit will be good but no, it was all the same ... probably I will not visit anytime soon to this restaurant.
