I have a love for Indian food, and on our drives we found this place, across the border in PA. Check it out!

The only things I liked about their saturday buffet were the gravy of malai kofta, the noodles and the rice pudding in the end.
Overall, this place is getting worse with every visit -
1. Very limited vegetarian options - There was chicken biryani, chicken vindaloo, butter chicken, salt and pepper chicken, chicken nuggets, chicken tandoori, chicken pakora all in the same buffet. Three vegetarian entrees total. There was enough exchange of prongs and other cutlery between vegetarian and non-vegetarian options to turn off any vegetarian eater.
2. Appetizers had stale samosas (you could smell the refrying and stale potato filing !).
3. Malai Kofta was just gravy for a long time, until they added freshly fried koftas ....not the ideal way to serve malai koftas because they dont mix well into the gravy when eaten. Plus koftas are supposed to have something more than just potatoes.
4. Excessive use of readymade sauces in chinese food doesnt make it taste better.
5. No soups for buffet ?
6. No daal in the buffet ?
7. Indian restaurants typically have an after-lunch mouth freshner. This one doesnt, for some reason !
8. Good indian restaurants typically serve fresh breads at the table. This one doesnt serve anything fresh at the table.

When it comes to improving quality, sky is the limit !

We were looking for Indian Food Restaurant in or close to Langhorne and we reached Bensalem for late night dinner at 10 PM. The restaurant 'Mirchmasala' was closed, so the nearby next was Food Cstle.
This is a small place on the main road having good parking place, about a dozen tables. The waiter was a Goan from India speaking Konkani to our surprise since our mother tongue is Konkani. We could place the order quickly since it was already 10PM and we were last customer, because the place would close at 11PM.
We could get nice rotis like paratha / naan, good fried rice after starters and Soup. In all it was a good dinner finished in an hour and back home in Langhorne.The place located also had a scenic view of the shops at Bensalem shining in the night.

I am not sure who is saying that this restaurant is great. Not only is the food bad, but the customer service is one of the worst. When my wife worte on their survey card about the bad service, the waiter cursed loudly and ripped the card right there. If you want to waste your money - please go ahead and experience the bad service, otherwise go to some other place. Trust me there are a lot of Indian/Pakistani rerstaurants in NJ and are much better then this piece of crap.

The food used to be good until the new mangment took over in Nov2009.
Most of the chciken disches were stale especially the grilled tandori and the Gralic chicken were horrible. Myself & as well as my wife's stomach was upset for almost one full week.
Luckily, my kids were fine since they only had the fries.
