We walked in while going up Walnut street and were pleasantly surprised. We ordered off the menu. The food was freshly prepared and well spiced. The food is Indian, not unusual but well prepared.

Visited as a family of 4. Had the buffet which was good value and offered a range of food including delicious mango icecream for dessert. The only critisism was the food was only lukewarm. Unlicensed so took our own beer.

The restaurant looked nice enough inside and service was good but didn't have a great vibe. We ordered some starters which were OK but didn't feel tempted enough to order mains.

Visited for dinner. The buffet offered many yummy vegetarian options. Great service and a table by the window.

Excellent service but food disappointing, again one of those Indian restaurants which thinks adding spices picked up at randon and throwing them in makes Indian food. Talked to my daughter after visiting and she said the same thing.

Our buffet lunch was very good, not outstanding. 6 entrees available, 3 vegetarian and 3 with meat along with naan and samosas as well as small salad bar made for plenty to choose from. The included rice pudding dessert topped of an inexpensive meal in...More

Not bad, but plenty of other places to go before I came back. Not a lot of flavor to the food. Chicken Biriani (check spelling) was very wet not how I have had it in many other places. They don't ask you your spice level...More
