This place is owned by Nepalese people. Most traditional Indian dishes are still on the menu, but the taste is not at all authentic. The service is fine, but the food needs improvement. Our friend who had not tasted Indian food before found it amazing, but we could not agree. Sweets are okay.

While I'm glad you enjoyed the service, I'm sorry you weren't impressed with the meal. We actually serve food from many different regions of India (but focus on East Indian delicacies) and have a team of specialty chefs from India preparing the dishes on-site from fresh, quality ingredients. We take great pride in our food and would love another opportunity to show you our best in the future.

Best wishes,
Steve, Restaurant Manager

I usually stop by this restaurant for a meal at the vegetarian Indian buffet. It provides a filling meal that satisfies my cravings for indian food. This is not 'gourmet' but average food that fills you up. The price is very reasonable, and unlike some other buffets I have visited, they are generous with their pappadams and naan bread. The heat level is mild to medium for most dishes, and raita is available to help cool your palate. If you like some meat or chicken, there are dishes available with a supplement to the usual price. Best of all is the dessert - they have 4-star Gulab Jamun! I always end up buying some to take home. Oh and don't forget the boiled chai, which includes refills.

Second time in, both on a Saturday night. The vegetarian buffet is great. This time we tried an add on meat dish...only good, not great. The VB had all the different varieties one could hope for. The Naan was excellent. Only thing I would have liked was maybe a samosa. As I am sure they would be difficult to keep in the buffet, maybe an Add-on. The table service and cashier were both friendly and efficient.

Awesome spot by Main and Fraser. About $10 CAD for a vegetarian buffet of authetic home cooked vegetarian dishes. For an extra $5 CAD there are some meat choices that can be added on. Although it looks like a small buffet, it is packed with flavor and there is variety. They have two desserts included with the buffet but if you enjoy indian sweets they have a large selection where you pay. It is kinda like a buffet of indian dishes, prices are very reasonable. Have been here many times and always get a delicious meal for a great price.

Considering the cheap price for an 'all you can eat' buffet, this is not half bad. The service was good and the food was average. However, I loved the 'GULAB JAMUN' for desert! mmmmm...sweet enough to rot your teeth on the spot!
