Saw the reviews and went to try it out. The server was wonderful even though he still has a lot to learn. My guest and I decided on the buffet. One of the potato dishes had a tinny taste. I have eaten much better food at other restaurants. Perhaps the strength of this place is their take out rather than... More

I used to order dishes for delivery instead of buffet in classic india. But I tried the dinner buffet last week and it was amazing! Quite unique dishes and quite a few vegetarian dishes available for dinner (more choices then lunch buffet I heard). They even have a Chinese noodle dish, quite delicious (not sure whether it is a regular... More

I was not only impressed with the variety on the buffet but the freshness and flavour of the dishes. If you need gluten free or vegetarian you will be as happy as we were. The price is about $13 for lunch buffet while the Friday and Saturday buffet is more extensive for $18. Also, there are delicious canned soups made... More

Went for the weekend buffet. The staff were really polite and friendly. The dosa was good. Other than that, a lot of the food could have been better compared to some of the other Indian restaurants in KW. Good selection for the buffet, at least.

Got there at approx 4pm. Was served at 440pm with only 2 other patrons. The menu said Ocean Perch. However they served disgusting catfish basa and admitted to it. I was told that menu didn't say Ocean Perch, which it did. They maybe been serving catfish basa for so long they forgot that menu stipulated ocean perch. I was asked... More

I went to this restaurant with my family. We ordered couple of dosas. There was bit of late, but I liked the food with spiciness of Indian flavors. The best thing was that they provided lots of papadum with shahi chutney while we were waiting.

We have so many good Indian restaurants in Waterloo Region, but this one is mediocre. The prices are a bit high for what you get. The buffet lunch is so-so.
