This place has great Indian food!! It is a very small restaurant and can get really busy. They have a buffet lunch for a great price and lots of different varieties of food. Their food always tastes fresh and the servers are very friendly!

I go here for lunch during the week and brunch on the weekend. The food is simple but good. If you like Indian food you will like Batika.
