We went to buffet lunch on Saturday prior to going to the Walters. We liked the Akbar in Columbia, so we tried this one. The restaurant is downstairs from street level and you immediately feel like you are in a basement. The carpets, furnishing and tables are all in need or replacement. What once was elegant is now just shabby. All that would be overlooked if the food met expectations, which it did not. The fish was probably "past date" and the spinach, which was my favorite in Columbia, was bitter and lacking the cheese which made the dish. The tandoor chicken was good, however, with lots of smokey taste. We will not return. Not worth the buffet price.
