Karavalli's lunch buffet has good variety of foods, and many vegetarian choices. The buffet is THE lunch special they told us they had over the phone, before we went; however, not all the workers had heard it being a"lunch special." The one worker who knew was able and happily willing to point out what was what on the buffet; however,... More

The food at Karavalli is awesome. We've been there are few times already; and a picky family when it comes to food quality and variety. We returned back from vacation and the first item on agenda was dinner at Karavalli the following day. Kapil the host is great and has good attention to details.

Top notch in every category -- excellent food and excellent service. The tamarind eggplant appetizer was excellent -- the best I've had. A lot of flavor and taste, excellent balance between the eggplant (you'll yogurt sauce, and tamarind. Simply an excellent dish. The pakora was very good -- we had the simplistic cheese version. We also had chicken tikka --... More

We went back to this restaurant after a long time for lunch and we ordered a la carte as was not in the mood for buffet. We found a deal on Yelp so that helped. We ordered a couple of appetizers and a couple of main dishes such as dosa and uttapam. It took a very long time for our... More

The food was tasty. However my friend had the chicken in a spinach sauce and there was only a few pieces of chicken. I had the curry goat and the same thing applied except that some of my goat was a bit chewy. I will say that the starter with shrimp in a tomato based sauce was good along with... More

For the last several years this place was my favorite Indian restaurant in Nanuet for buffet. However, yesterday, for the first time the place disappointed me for the following reasons: 1) very slow service - there was only one server doing all the activities. My naan was served by the time I was almost done with lunch. 2) overall cleanliness... More

This Nanuet Indian Restaurant is more expensive than local competition. There are so many restaurants with similar cuisine, that we stay away and go to less costly Indian restaurants which are as good or better.

We were looking for a lunch place that would be quick, serve authentic Indian food and has good service with reasonable price. We found all of the above at the Karavalli lunch buffet. Amazing choice of spice Indian food served with fresh Naan hit the spot. A glass of mango lassi (mango, buttermilk drink) was a perfect match with the... More

I went here with my boyfriend, twice now, and the service is always impeccable. We had the sweetest waiter with such a great sense of humor, he offered to translate anything on the menu, offered his opinion, and was thoroughly concerned with how we liked everything and if it lived up to our expectations. We got this chickpea appetizer that... More
