Food was not so good. Very limited choice in buffet. We went around 8 p.m. and we were denied ala carte menu. Very un professional attitude as they could have easily provided us with the same.

Indian food is my favourite and this is my favourite Indian cuisine restaurant. The atmosphere is has a classy Moreen but still authentic touch. The Buffett was a great price for all the variety you get to sample.

This restaurant that used to be known for quality food appears to have deteriorated in quality by all standards. The dish served was stale as is was taken out of freezer, heated and served. It was smelling besides odd taste. Nan was not cooked properly. Will never go again.

Our all time favourite Indian restaurant. We usually order off the menu, as we find it a bit more fresh than the buffet, as well as being able to choose the level of spicy we want. The Coconut Basa Curry and the Tandoori Paneer Tikka are our all-time favourites. Like, I have dreams about the paneer.....But, it's all good. Staff... More

I usually come here once a month or more for the lunch buffet as I work nearby, and it has never disappointed. A very good selection of food, in a very nice circular spread, with a salad bar on the side with a limited, but very ripe selection of fruit (there's also rice pudding and mango custard nearby). The service... More

One of the best Indian Buffet in Canada, I loved everything from pakoras, samosas, chicken meal, masalas... Sweets are good too.

I recommend the buffet on a busy night. On a slow night the naan is crusty and not replaced often. In the middle of our meal the supper rush came in and everything was replaced and fresh within 10 minutes. Delicious naan, good butter chicken, below average samosas and a wonderful variety to try new kinds of Indian. I think... More
