They have lunch buffet until 15:00 o'clock. Price including tax is 12.93 dollars. Food is very good. I went there twice. Service was not friendly but the food was very good and price very reasonable. I would definitely go there again and I definitely recommend.

This is our first choice when it comes to Indian food. It's always fresh and delicious. Parking can be challenging during lunch time. The restaurant has an outside patio that is very romantic. Great customer service !

A group of us (seven total) went to this restaurant during the summer of 2016 and shared dishes amongst ourselves. This allowed almost all of us to sample a variety of different dishes. Channa masala, dal makhani, aloo gobi, vegetable samosas and pakoras, and malai...More
