Hardly been a time when I have bit been here (whenever I visit family in Boston). I love their chole bhaṭure and paneer sabzi simply out of the world. Love their dosa night and friday night buffet. Great place and very friendly staff.

The food is nice. Buffet options were good although desert option could have been better. Mysore dosa we as good and chutney could have been better.

As far as I know, they do not sell any alcoholic beverages. If you want to be 100% sure, I would call the place and ask. However, I don’t remember seeing anything on the menu.
