We've been here several times and always get the buffet. We really like it. I saw other reviews that stated the food is bland. I totally disagree. Its spicy enough to make my nose run! The buffet is restocked on a regular basis and has plenty of variety. This is our favorite Indian restaurant in San Antonio.

Had the buffet - loads of different Indian dishes that let you try a little bit of everything - some spicy, some not. Tandoori chicken is the best, chicken masala, lentil soup, various vegetable dishes all good.

Went there to celebrate hubby's birthday. Found the food a bit bland for my taste. Maybe they keep it that way for others but thats not in keeping with the Indian taste. Also the food was just lukewarm and not hot. Overall a disappointing experience.

Food is catered for the non indian clientele. Having come from England I guess I expected more. Food is bland and watered down and not a representation of real indian food.

I sat where there was a view of the kitchen, and I saw the can of Raid sitting on the floor. So, my assumption is a clean kitchen has regular professional bug control and absolutely no bugs crawling around the restaurant, the food or the food preparation areas. Should a restaurant be doing spot spraying, like hitting a bug when... More

I should have known better when all the customers were non-Indian. This is an ok restaurant if you are looking for Americanized Indian food. They have a buffet with variety of items. Service was friendly. I liked the veg items better than the non-veg. The soup and raita were terrible, the sag paneer was missing the paneer cubes, naan was... More

Some of the best Indian food I have had and I've eaten a lot. I lived in Asia for 13 years and am always hunting for good Asian food. This will be on the top of my list.

We love to visit this restaurant when we are in San Antonio. When we lived in San Antonio, we ate here at least once per week. The food is always fresh, delicious and affordable.

Been coming here for two decades- the samosas, sag paneer and naan are delicious. Simple decor works for me and nice staff.

Thank Johanne H
