I stopped by Nikki's Chaat Cafe for their lunch buffet, and it was excellent. For 13.99 it's a great value. They had a wide variety of dishes, that were all fantastic, as well as warm and tasty naan. I will definitely be back here again.

Good breakfast. I had the "Indian Omelette" both visits. Tastily spiced and properly cheesed. The Indian Chai Tea was good.

Heard from an Indian friend that the food was great-but were disappointed. The servers were friendly but appeared as if it was their first day on the job. We asked for guidance with the very extensive menu and were provided some good choices. The Samosa...More

Average food but good considering they have to travel few 100 miles to get grocery etc. But they seem to use artificial colours in their vegetables. Very popular with Indians and tour companies operating out of India. Can consider if you miss home cooked Indian...More
