“Taste of India”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We never try Indian cuisine before so we didn't know what to expect. But we were pleasantly surprised. Food has different taste then we are used to but we loved their spices. This buffet is all you can eat so we try different meals. One of my favourite is e.g. fish pakora, chicken tandoori, garlic mushrooms or butter chicken. I can't compare with any other indian restaurants, I can only say that in this one we have glad and tasty experience.

“Delicious & Can't Beat the Lunch Price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013

I work around the corner and head here for lunch sometimes. Amazing value and some quality food. I go with some co-workers from India and they just load my plate up with the best stuff, paneer, tandori, etc. The chicken is tender and the sauces very tasty. Even the deserts are great (definitely try the honey donut things). Friendly service, and I'll say again, GREAT value! Will return again and again.

“Cannot beat the price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

This was right next to our hotel and has a great, inexpensive, small buffet. The food is not too spicy (pity) so it will appeal to many. I enjoyed all of the selections on the buffet. The inside of the restaurant is a bit run-down, but it is clean and well kept.

“Great Food! Great Price! Great staff!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2013

Stopped in at Modern India Buffet for the first time in what I hear is their new location at Caroline and Main streets. Went in on a Friday night and it was fairly packed. Got nice window table and proceeded to buffet. Lots of choices, food was hot and tasty. Beer was cold. We were both surprised at how good the food was as some reviews were not so great. The staff that we encountered were polite and professional. Don't see why they get negative reviews. The price was great, the food was great, staff were great. You won't be disappointed. We will be back

“Okay variety of food, but quality and ambience were lacking”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were shopping in Ancaster and decided we wanted an Indian Buffet. This was the closest buffet to where we were, so we went. The restaurant itself has extremely outdated decor, and when I walked upstairs to the washroom, it was a hall where you could have large groups, but it was so dirty!! The buffet was stocked, but I noticed when a container got low, the cooks would just come and put new food over the old food. The selection was okay. Not great. We won't be going back.
