“good variety buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Went to the buffet. Loved the selection of dishes available. I had trouble deciding what I liked best, but I did not dislike anything. My friend's favorite was the tandoori chicken- so tender! The carrot pudding and the little round ball like desserts were so good... sweet but good. They had fresh made dosas available. staff was nice, prompt and helpful.IT was a Sunday and it was pretty busy, lots of families. I love the ceiling tiles - all in a very nicely decorated and a restaurant that I have plans to visit again!

“Outstanding - Jackpot!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I was amazed when I saw that this place was ranked #56 in Melbourne Beach. This is one of the finest places to eat...for people looking for AUTHENTIC indian food - you couldn't ask for anything better!

The dosas were particularly good!

“Disappointing disappointing disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Took a group of 7 for a birthday lunch. Poor service. Mediocre buffet. Not one of the group has an interest in returning. We all agreed food was edible but not inviting

“Terribly disappointed”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

When my daughter and I entered this restaurant, we were led to a table and that was the end of any communication with the waiter...no menu, no request for our drink order, nothing. I had wanted to try their Mango Lassi, the dosas and nan I'd read were so good, and perhaps one of their appetizers, The menu never came so we decided to go ahead and have the buffet since that was all that was offered. The chicken tandori was mush meat, with lots of bones and no real taste. The lamb curry was tasty but extremely boney and mostly gristle with very little meat. The spicey carrots were hot and good. The rice was fine, but the rice pudding was a little rice in lots of sugary milk, no pudding to it. The little sweetened dough balls looked like plums, tasted like very stale cake donut holes soaked in sugary water. The bread offered was lightly burned bland pita bread, no poori, no nan. When my daughter asked for more water, the young man glared at her as if to ask, "how dare you?" The restroom was clean enough but the walls were dingy and the towels were just set on top of the towel dispenser like someone was too lazy to put them into the dispenser. I had really looked forward to trying this restaurant. As my daughter said, "If someone had never tasted Indian food before, they would never try it again if this was their introduction to it's flavors. That is a shame because Indian food can be very flavorful. I was more than disappointed. There are too many good restaurants in Melbourne to waste money on this poor one.
