I frequent this restaurant one a month for my Friday buffet. The majority of the time these is a great selection and variety of foods from mild to spicy. Reasonably priced. Wait staff is very efficient, always there to clear the plate and make sure your water is full. If you come alone their is a TV which is either... More

Wonderful place for Indian buffet. I look forward to coming here, and am upset if I'm not hungry when I arrive because that means there are some things I just won't be able to get to. - I go here roughly twice a year. They never have the same thing twice (an exaggeration, maybe 2 things out of 12 the... More

We called before going to the restaurant and asked regarding the menu for buffet. The operator mentioned they can not disclose the menu. I should have recognized this as a red flag and went to some other restaurant. Reached the restaurant, I asked the waiter if they are going to replace the biryani with the freshly cooked one. He said... More

Since I work around the corner, I go here often. Very reasonable price. Food is good, spice is nice (nothing mouth-melting). Just wish they had a little more variety sometime.

I ordered at the counter and was grunted at by the member of staff (CHAK RAPANI) who even questioned why i wanted... More

Not very busy but the buffet was just fine. The food tasted and looked fresh. It was fast and good and I loved the rice desert and the hot peach ball desert. Total and tip was just under $14.

Looking for a fast food stop in Natick and decided to go with Indian at Minerva. For a strip mall setting the food was not too bad and the service was real fast. Only dig was that the level of cleanliness was off, fork was not washed clean. Food was hot and well prepared and served quickly with all our... More
