“Simply sucks...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2010

We were on our get away to atlantic city, NJ during last weekend and being an Indian, thought let's have atleast one indian meal during our trip. I searched at google and found this. (lack of planning..didn't read reviews..it was like last minute decision)

First of all, enterance itself gave us signal not to go in, but we didn't get that. Building itself look like set up of some horror movie and furniture has been without polish for decades.

Second of all, they prefer to serve in plastic plate, which i guess ok for a cost they are offering. But if you are picky about that (like my wife), you better stay away from this place.

Food: The most important thing, if it was good, i wouldn't write this. But i gotta tell you, food was simply aweful.
Naan was like base of pizza. :( (Not sure..that guy has ever tasted naan..or simply becoming greedy to make more money)
Curries: Lack of spices and flavours. I can understand they consider to put average spices in buffet considering all guests, but it was uneatable.
Rice: If you like Biryani (Rice) with overcooked(burned would be right word) vegetables, you may like it. But again, lack of spices.
Desserts: They were offering two desserts. One i really liked but other one was simply waste.
I guess this place needs to be renovated and needs better management. The location they have is simply superb. Just across the "Trump Taj Mahal". By renovating building they can attract new customers and by providing good quality food, they can make those customers to come back. But until then, don't expect me or my friends or family to be there..good luck.
