“Modern India Buffet has it all”
Reviewed February 7, 2013

Tandoori, Pakora, Paneer, Masala are only few of the selections this buffet offers. Modern India Buffet is a local success story that continues to draw crowds including loyal regulars. A large selection of hot and cold dishes is available for a reasonable price. I am not frequent flyer to Indian food, so I am always impressed by the unique flavours and the large variety of dishes in this type of cuisine.

I tried the butter chicken and it was a melt in your mouth delight. I tried various other stewed dishes and the spice and flavour was superb. I did not try any hot spicy chili or hot curries but they were there. The deep fried and baked foods were a bit dry but that could be because I ate at 5pm, rather than the busy dinner time.

I could look through the window into the kitchen to see the food being made in house and see good sanitation. These are the reasons that make good cooking; variety, spices, and flavour. Modern India Buffet has it all.

“good food”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

We frequently eat here. It's very nice for the price you pay. The restaurant is somewhat clean but could be better. Not too crowded, with lots of space. The food is good, warm and somewhat fresh most of the time.

“Had better.”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

The food in the buffet was drowning in oil. The steam tables was set too hot and was ruining the food. The buffet wasn't being maintained, so you'd find a full tray of something completely dried out. I'd rather go to a sit-down Indian restaurant and know my food is fresh...

“Amazing lunch buffet for a great price.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

I hadn't been in for 5 years. Decided to pop in for a quick lunch. The service was prompt. The food was delicious - good variety. And the price was a surprise (in a good way).
