Had been here once before & we tried again. Positive is there was plenty of seating. Negative was $price $12 for lunch? No beverage included! Thought selection was very limited & flavors not that terrific. Don't plan to return.

After searching for Indian food on a Monday night, we were happy to find this place open. Easy to find, easy parking. Friendly staff, good service, HUGE menu. It was really hard to decide what to order. We had vegetable samosas, mulligatawny, chicken curry and lamb tikka masala--all delicious. Generous portions, and we were asked how spicy we would like...

We had the lunch buffet here, on our way to La Vista. The place can be little difficult to find due to its small letters, though being on a busy street. We had to drive around one time before we found it. We had to use a pay parking on Farnam street. The decor was good inside. We had no... More

Enjoyed the afternoon buffet this week. Living outside Washington DC we enjoy many ethnic eateries. This buffet would fit right in. Nice variety, good quality, attentive staff and OK price. Tried a couple items we hadn't come across before. Will likely become a frequented eaterie for us. Convenient walk-to downtown location. Good heat!

A colleague and I ate lunch at Flavors. It is a purely Indian restaurant that has a large, flavorful luncheon buffet. We got here just in time, for within ten minutes of our arrival, the place was packed. The buffet line move quickly, and when a container emptied, it was quickly refilled. The atmosphere is a bit stark, but each... More

This was my first time eating there for the lunch buffet and I was very disappointed. The food was bland and the bread was tasteless. Nothing special, just ordinary. The food on buffet line was not displayed well and not easy to access. The food at Mother India restaurant (3572 Leavenworth St, Omaha, NE) is much better. But Mother India... More

The menu had items from all over India and the food was really good. All meals come with crackers and chutney before the main dish is served. The food was really good but it was brought out at different times and the wait was really long. There is no alcohol served either so there wasn't much to do while we... More

My wife and I have been going to Flavors since Rakesh opened a few years ago. Best Indian food in Omaha back then, especially during their lunch buffet. Then the fire in late 2012 closed them up and it seemed like renovations were taking forever. Fast forward a year later at reopening and Rakesh had completely remodeled the place with... More

Their buffet has one of the best assortment of Indian foods - makes it so easy to try something you've never had before just to test it - and go back for more! Everything was very tasty from the rather spicy soup to the not-at-all dry tandoori chicken, yummy. Service, even for the buffet, was friendly. It's almost like being... More
