We come here all the time. Here is what you want to order: butter chicken, chicken tikka Masala, dal makhani lentils and naan, and you are good to go. The house salad with yogurt dressing is very good. If you can not handle spices (like my wife), don't worry. Ask for your food to be mild. Interior is nice, classy.... More

Met my family here for lunch while atending a conference nearby. Thought a buffet would be a quick option to maximize time between meetings. We had a very pleasant lunch--service was nice, buffet clean and well stocked. Food was average to slightly better than average, seasonings seemed muted but not bland, selection above average. Naan was served from the kitchen... More

We have been here many times & once again the food was great! I had the chicken kabobs &they were delicious. Unfortunately they don't provide enough of the delicious yogurt dip. You have to pay an additional charge for extra dip. Very sad. Thanks for the great food.

This place changed. Now it took a turn south. Rice was under cooked. Mild for kids was a medium hot. The rest of the food was nothing worth the trip. Mango lassi was good. atmosphere is fine. Not going there again.

This is a great place to get some good Indian food that is both spicy and normal. I would recommended this place over and over again for the sole purpose that it tastes great.

The food was terrible and almost raw! VERY-Small portion, even the bread was one sliced pita. Took the waiter the whole meal to deliver the bread. The food was awful!! This was the worst meal I have ever had ( and I mean ever! ) and prompted me to write others not to waste there money. I have never wrote... More

Excellent food. Buffet at lunch offers a variety of great tasting Indian food, with rotating dishes. Supper's high end & isn't cheap, but is very good. Somewhat upscale. Good for a date.

Nice atmosphere, loved the honey Indian hot tea on the buffet. Good desert choices, like fresh fruit and banana pudding, and something else that was sitting in the heat too long. I mention the deserts because, usually they are not desirable at other Indian buffet places. Refilled buffet quickly, and plentiful, and had an decent selection. My suggestion to owners... More

There's no taste in the food. It's just BLAND. Ordered Panneer Tikka masala(which should be spicy(indian spicy)), these people mixed chilli powder and served it. Couldn't eat the dish. There's no taste in both the dishes that we ordered. Panneer Tikka masala and Pav Bhaji. Very disappointed.

This is my favorite Indian restaurant in the area. Their lunch buffet is the best in town and I have yet to find anything on their menu that wasn't great!
