They offer lunch buffet, which is great for me who usually isn't sure what to eat at Indian restaurant. Thier chicken curry is very delicious.

We were there for a late lunch on Saturday. They offered an inexpensive buffet so we tried it. It wasn't elaborate, but the food was tasty. I'd like to try it when we could order from a menu. We probably could have then, but most people were eating from the buffet.

I went for their lunch Buffett, and it was great! It only cost $9.99. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff was friendly and nice.

This restaurant recently changed hands and there were conflicting reports as to how good it was, so I tried it out myself. The buffet was marvelous. All dishes were fresh and they had several spicy ones (which doesn't always happen). Fresh salad and chutneys--I particularly liked the mint. It has a neat atmosphere as it is in an old fire...

The food was reasonably good, but nothing better than the Indian food we make at home (a friend from India has been giving us lessons). If you don't know how to make good Indian food yourself, give this place a try. If you do, it's not worth the $10 a person for the lunch buffet. Haven't been for the dinner... More

I like the food here a lot. I love going for the buffet so I can taste everything. The service can be weird sometimes. The entrees are always great but freshness can be an issue with the buffet on a slow day. The carpet in here is disgusting and I wish they'd replace it. But I'll overlook that for their... More

I visited Little India on a Wednesday evening and got right in as the place had only a few diners at around 6:30pm. Immediately upon being seated by a young man, I was asked what I wanted to drink and I asked if the place has Indian beers in the 650ml (22 oz.) bottles. He said yes and a waitress... More

A great menu and friendly hosts, but the sleeper is the upstairs bar. It's one of my favorite spots in the city.
