Street parking. Nice white table cloth interior. Acceptable service. Great Punjabi Chai tea. I just wish the cooking was a little bit better. I found the onion bhaji rather dry and the tandoori chicken less pleasing than most. The Keema Nan was average.

As a vegetarian who enjoys tasty food of all ethnic types, I particularly love this place for its many buffet options. The waitstaff is great and it is a lovely atmosphere as well. The food is plenty and filling and the price is right!

Enjoyed the garlic Nann and the vegetarian dishes. Very tasty and level of spiciness can be requested. We requested for normal spicy and it was great! Good lunch for two of us as the portion was just right. Enjoy!

Not much to write home about. The food here is average, not much variety or imagination went into the curries. As an example the paneer jal Frazie was just a basic sauce with a bag of mixed veg added in. The veg was over cooked...More

My daughters like this place so much - they scribbled the phone number for ordering take-out on the wall above the desk in the kitchen. Sure, the young waiters are hotties, but the fare is just as hot - and spicy! We are usually tempted...More
