We like Indian food, but don't go often since there is no India restaurants near where we live. We had to go to Frico (ust over an hour away) so we decided to try this one. The last time we tried one in Frisco was not great. I must say this place was super nice, efficient, hot food on the... More

Pros: Kid friendly food like Appam and Dosa were great! Loved their buffet. Appam and dosa were made in front of you and served fresh to you. Ambience was great. Table was cleared without being asked so that it's free of clutter during buffet. Cons: They had a lot of dessert items but not that impressive to taste. Prices could... More

They make me feel very welcome. The food is outstanding. The buffet is large and offers great variety. If you are looking for top notch Indian... More

I'm not a big fan of Indian food or spicy foods in general, but it was my daughter's choice for her birthday lunch. We went at lunchtime on a Sunday and the restaurant was busy, but not overwhelmingly so. The buffet was huge, with many food choices. The staff was very helpful, showing me which items were the mildest. I... More

While traveling through Texas with the kids, we found this place close by and were very impressed. We love Indian food and try it everywhere we go, luckily the kids are big fans as well. The inside is one of the best decorated I have seen, with tons of seating. We were here for lunch, and had the buffet. There... More

Lunch Buffet was ok. There was a good choice of buffet but the taste was not very good. Coffee ordered for lunch was not nice. Dinner was really tasty.
