For a buffet food place this was actually pretty good, and I like being able to try lots of different things. However, we arrived at 8.10pm, were told 'take your time', and then at 8.25pm, so just 15 minutes later we were told to take...More

I am in Kauai on a work trip, with two faculty advisors who have been to this island ~20 times. Even for them, the food was incredibly overpriced. There wasn't much of a difference in price between vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes either, which Indian restaurants...More

I love Indian food and the phrase “made fresh” best describes this restaurant. When I had the first taste of the green (mint/cilantro) chutney, I knew this was a unique place to eat. The “seams” on the samosas were uneven and they looked hand-made and...More

Excellent all around. Delicious nAn. Okra out of this world. Spinach paneer to die for. Fish curry fair. Fish a little dry. Atmosphere nice. And clean rest room to boot. They listened when I said not too spicy. Veg dishes moderate proportion. Overall Aok

A nice place, very warm welcome when we entered, lots of food to chose for (we didn't get on an evening with buffet as we prefer "a la carte" dining). Big portions, hardly managed to finish. Very good quality with adequate spices. Highly recommended.
