We ordered garlic Chicken and it was the worst I had ever eaten in my life. they are fooling in the name of Indian cuisine. So bad taste. Also they make you wait for atleast 35 min before your order arrives.

Kabob was decent. Goat Kali Mirch masala was good but had mostly meatless bones. Chicken Nani was ordinary. Lamb keema was flavorless except for the sweetness which isn't our taste. Ambience was decent. We ordered a raita. They gave a table spoon of it in...More

While I've never ordered from the menu, the lunch buffet is stocked with excellent tasting food. The selection may not be huge, but the quality is what counts here. I've dined here for lunch several times while in the area on business and have always...More
