Good, inexpensive Indian buffet, but now closed. There is another Khana Peena at 5316 College Ave in Oakland, just about 5 miles away from this one. (The one in Oakland also has a full bar and Happy Hour.)

This is a very nice place in a good location. I thought it was pretty pricey, though. I've been back since and have trouble having dinner for less than $60 for two people. Good Indian food. Reasonable service.
