Best Indian Food buffet EVER....for the price. That price cannot be beaten anywhere for the quality of the food and the service of the people. Many traditional dishes and some you won't find in other restaurants. Best dish was the stewed goat for me.

Food is excellent. Genuinely authentic Indian food. Not too spicy.Although not as food as Royal Taj but definitely better then Mango grill or Chutney. If you are a frequent visitor you do get 10% discount. They do have lunch boxes for carry out.
