Went for lunch buffet while attending local convention.

No tandoori chicken.
Saag paneer rather bland.
Vegetable samosas were tasty.
Rather limited selection for lunch buffet.

I've been spoiled with Indian buffets in Oregon.

The best way to easily check if a restaurant is popular with their own people is have a look inside if they are a big part of the guests. Despite the price level we were the only non-indian people in the whole restaurant and it was well frequented for the late time we arrived. Food was real good, great curries and the garlic-nan is to recommend.

Was in the area and went here on a recommendation. I found the food very good. The Chicken Curry dish that I had was very tasty and the service was attentive.

Great food! Very authentic and huge portions. We were there on a weeknight and had wonderful service from Rafi. Nice ambiance and convenient location with the parking garage within 1/2 a block. One of the highlights of my stay in San Diego. Strongly recommend.
