I think this is really very authentic and delicious Indian food. They have verity of dishes and every dish tastes very delicious no matter whether it's south Indian or north Indian.

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

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.

They... More

I went for a weekend lunch buffet. The dishes were typical southern Indian and so, were too spicy for me. Also there were few vegetarian options, especially for the price.

Our family loves Indian food, but not too spicy. This restaurant catered to our taste and prepared the dishes perfectly
