This place has to be close to closing. I regret not checking the reviews before I went, but hopefully this will save someone else the trip. The server was rude and unkempt. The food took forever and was greasy and unappetizing. Go to madras instead.

It has nice buffet. It included chicken, lamb and fish. Lamb was best with naan and Poori. It has nice service too which can handle larger crowds too. Every item in buffet was up to it's mark. I should mention chutneys they make...Mmmmm....awesome....

Good food, but nothing to write home about or for that matter to post on Trip Advisor....ok all around- service was better that the food.

I decided that I would go to the "clock tower" shopping center for lunch and grocery shopping. I picked Minerva because I used to eat there a lot years ago. The restaurant had been updated but the buffet was rather small. The restaurant was not...More
