Good indian food and great value. If you are a vegetarian, there is a long list of dishes for you to choose from. I have not tried their buffet but the service staff are nice and you can generally get a seat without a long wait. I love the garlic naan. It is soooooo light and fluffy.

We have been here a few times. The food is absolutely amazing. I haven't been for the buffet, just table service. Chicken Tiki Saag is great; so are all the flavors of Nan. Service is terrible. Even when there are one or two other diners. The men (servers/owners?) stand at the bar with their backs to the patrons. We had... More

I drove across town with my family, purchased an extra meal expecting to use my Entertainment coupon. When the bill came, I was told the Entertainment coupon was published "in error", and I was supposed to have seen a sign indicating this when entering. There was NO SIGN at all. They still refused to honor my coupon. I cannot in... More

This is a nice choice for those wanting Indian in a more casual setting and not too disappointed by the use of the same sauces for a number of dishes. Our family really likes the mixed selection appetizer, several of the northern Indian selections and our son really likes the intense heat of the Vindaloo, which does not come in... More

I have seen some mixed reviews but our meals on a Friday night were very good. The service was excellent and the prices were reasonable. We considered ordering ala carte but instead had two "dinner specials" the Kanak and the lamb choley. They were about $18 each but both had more food than we could eat - enough for two... More

To be fair, my wife and i are regular diners at Kanak. We eat there because we love the food and find the service to be outstanding. My most recent meal was the Lamb and Shrimp curry. It was simply out of this world. The restaurant is in Montgomery, a bit of a drive from downtown Cincinnati, but well worth... More
