“Fantastic turn around, great food variety, listened to feedback!!”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

This is my second review. I happened to go here again because of my friend's birthday. I did not have a choice, as he wanted to eat here. After my first visit I was a bit scared. But wow.. i am glad i went.. what a change!

The interiors look more nice. It is pleasant with nice colors and decor.

The staff is very polite and serve you promptly. Ask for Nathan. He is great guy who is very helpful in explaining menu items and delivering everything to you very promptly and as requested

The food was fantastic. We had north indian and south indian. They added dosa and idli -- which was soooooooooo good and tasty!

They can make it spicy and miles. The paneer is so good and well made. You have to tell them to make it hot if you want otherwise they will make it not so spicy. But they did fantastic job.

The portions are good size.

Also saw the buffet.. .. they had amazing variety.. and they kept the place clean.. no dropping from non veg to veg.. or spellings not clean.. everything was clean and they had indian chinese.. which i like.. they had north indian and south indian.. veg and non veg.. i am so glad these guy are improving...

i was hoping for an alternative to sindhu and swagat in lansing area..

the owner it seems reads these and responds.. very very impressed.

small suggestions for further improvement..

1) maybe add banana leave in dosa plate for presentation.. the leaves are cheap and available at all stores in michigan...

2) provided filter coffee with sugar option.. ( master the taste with sugar and serve that option.. sometimes people do not know how much to add.. same with chai )

3) in the mysore sada dosa.. put some less food coloring.. try little more authentic color.. as this will give that original look

4) the cashier side with the empty glasses.. do something to that side.. it looks little dry

5) get some more indian chinese options

KEEP UP the good work though.. congrats.. !!!

what a change..! wow!

“No for this restaurant and I will tell my friends and coliguea”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile


Food is pretty standard,poor quality,for an Indian buffet.However,we did not get much opportunity to sample the buffet.
The waiter guy acted irritated by our arrival at 2:20pm Apparently they close the buffet at 2:30pm.Hours seem a bit odd for afternoon-customers were still coming in after 2:30.

Funny part is we welcomed by an Indian girl for seating again

owners--Teach your waitstaff what is customer service Your food is not so good that you can alienate and be rude to your customers.

“Wonderful Indian food, authentic and very flavorful!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in for lunch near 2pm. We were a little hesitant to get the buffet since it was so late. However the food was excellent! I'm not sure of everything we ate, but we'll be back. Many times!
