Come here hungry, because you'll want to try everything more than once from appetizers to main dishes to dessert. Buffet has broad range of standard indian dishes: aloo, vindaloo, tikka, tandoori chicken, but always something you've never heard of (with sides of onions, chutneys and hot pickles), always at least couple vegetarian options. The staff is very pleasant and helpful,... More

Good restaurant, could try their lunch buffet which serves various items at a cheap cost. Definitely better than the other indian restaurants in surrounding area and on moody street. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate 6. Do try their Chicken Afghani, it is one of the best.

My daughter frequents this restaurant and it is one of her favorite places. I was hopeful I would like it as well. I ordered a lamb dish and although the sauce was tasty the lamb was overly chewy.I gave up trying to eat it and tried a spinach dish my friend ordered. That tasted terrible. It was really bland like... More

We've tried all the Indian restaurants in Waltham, and this one is consistently our go to spot. Good food, nice service, decent prices, and consistently a fun time.

Went there for the lunch buffet and was a little confused when I was seated. The setup is a little strange. There is no buffet set up in the main seating area. The buffet is in a separate little room off to the side. There is seating there too. If you are new you won't know that. All the regulars... More

I have been coming here for over twenty years and in all of my culinary travels, this is the best Indian food going. The tikka masala is different and tastier than any other I have tried, and the same goes for their breads their breads. The service is great, and the food is always fresh. If you are in the... More

This had been our second favorite Indian food place. We do not go there as often as we would like as the staff look and act as if they come out of a bollywood thug movie. A couple of times they have charged us evening prices at lunch. I would say go and enjoy the food just check your invoice.... More

We had been here for the buffet and found the food to be tasty. The experience with takeout was a disappointment. In short, we got a lot of sauce and very little chicken or shrimp in the appropriate dishes. The food was still decent, but the fact that there was so much sauce relative to the amount of the main...

We ate here after touring Brandeis University which is a five-minute drive away. Run by a father and his son, this restaurant provided a reasonably-priced lunch buffet. Besides the normal dishes one expects, there was garlic naan, a delicious chicken curry dish, and some other dishes that I don't normally encounter at buffets. The restaurant was clean, the temperature was... More
