Only one good thing on menu : Tandoori Chicken Leg (from menu, not buffet). w/Naan. Rest of the stuff is greasy. Service is poor. Ambiance is very average. But the tandoori chicken is the best (best in Austin). In the buffet they put the worst tandoori chicken, so do not eat from there. Chicken biryani is also pretty good.

Horrible food in Lunch buffet.
No spices, horrible service, Waiters dont come to you ever without you calling them.
Owners are always loud, not allowing you to enjoy a peaceful meal
Ambience is very sub Standard.
Located in a very Shabby and very very Dirty complex.
I love Indian food, but I will never go back to this place.
I give it 1 star only coz they don't let you go below that.

My Advise : Go to some place else.

4 or 5 different owner and still less than good food. I don't go to this restaurant often, only been there 4 or 5 times, and ate only 3 times. just tandoori stuff. other other person is right, its open because people don't have choices for halal food in Austin. thing is people who cannot cook at home and have no choice to eat out they get more food for cheap, and don't care about quality. this restaurant gives a bad rep to Pakistani, indian cuisine.
