My husband who once was a vegetarian thought it was the best vegetarian he had ever eaten. Don't know any specifics about the ethnicity or origins of the food but it tastes wonderful whether you are a strict vegetarian or not. Would love to take cooking lessons from the chefs!!

I am so surprised by the amount of high praise this place has received. This is an absolute slap in the face to Indian food. All food options are Americanized. There were couple of Indian menu items but they tasted terrible. If you are looking for Indian food, don't be cheated by the online review. It's not INDIAN. Atmosphere was... More

This place is great! They have an award winning vegetarian buffet with friendly staff that is very satisfying. There's a temple room that has regular programs including ecstatic chanting and dancing especially on Sunday afternoons and a Wednesday evening Program upstairs at 6:30 for new people who want to come chant, hear spiritual discussion, have food and hang out. This... More

What an atmosphere!!! Food was great, fresh and abundant, unlike other buffets who refill the line until you have to ask for more. Had been working on coming here and was brave enough to get on Dallas traffic at 6:15 pm on a Friday all the way from Frisco 1:15 minutes later arrived in paradise. Will return for more!!! Teas...

I have been coming to this place for over 20 years and the food is consistently delicious and inventive. Cooked according to the Krishna traditions, there are no onions or garlic and yet everything is flavorful and appetizing. It's served buffet style with a variety of dishes, both Indian and other ethnic styles. Their spanakopita is terrific and the fresh... More

My overall favorite restaurant in Dallas. The food here isn't nauseatingly creamy and over-seasoned like at most Indian places. It's different in a very positive way.

This vegetarian buffet is run by the Hare Krishna Temple. They offer all vegetarian and mostly vegan food for a very decent price. They also give food away to the needy, which is really honorable and decent in my book. Their food is not the typical Indian food like you get in most restaurants, but it is delicious. The service...

Buffet of vegan food. Very good and plentiful with dessert included in the price (we were stuffed and did not get any). Vegan lasagna was really good and there were lots of other choices - some very spicy.
