The lunch buffet was closed. But instead they would bring some small portions on the table. The result was overwhelming and very tasty. Great food for a sharp price in a nice setting. I am a fan.

Based on some of the reviews, I was a tad nervous about this place that my colleague decided on. I was wrong. Restaurant is clean, with professional service staff, pleasant and relaxing venue, and absolutely excellent food. Facilities including the bathrooms were very clean and looked nearly new. Would definitely return again. I wish I had a restaurant like this... More

If you want good Indian food, I found the place. Lunch buffet is everyday however Sunday's are more, $17.95. I had no idea how large this restaurant was upon entering but it's a good thing as it was packed, no reservations and no wait. The food was amazing, fresh and very tasty. Tandoori chicken with hot naan is brought to... More

We had a business lunch here on a weekday and took advantage of the fantastic buffet ($14.95 M-Th, and $17.95 F-S). This offers a fantastic opportunity to savor a wide range of Indian specialties. We had 8 people at a quiet table by the window and were able to have a pleasant and exceptionally tasty business lunch. My only suggestion... More

Two in our party. One had "Papdi Chaat" as a starter & "Banjara Dal" with Roomali Roti. The other had the fried fish (Fish Koliwara) & lamb boti kabab masala with Tandoori Roti. As with Indian dishes, there was enough for us to share. The papdi in the papdi chaat was thick and slightly tough. I would have preferred to... More

This place is descent if you are hungry and staying in downtown area and wants to taste some spicy food after a long day downtown tours etc. Its well worth the drive to Devon Street to Sabri Nihari or Usmania if you really want to tase athentic indian/Pakistani food.

The quantity was the first thing that struck me. Ordered a biryani, naan and the beigan bharta. Food was great. Please ensure you make a reservation if you are going on a weekend. Very close to the redline subway as well

Not a fan of buffet, so I wish I had gone when they had menu only. My family enjoyed their choices and were very pleased.

I love indian buffets, but I don't know much about what all those curries with the lentils and chick peas and things are called. But it was good. And I was fine that being in the river north local it traded in a little authenticity in order to cater to the local population. Pros: Decor was good, and they get... More
