The food is good. On the spicy side even if order was for mild or moderate. Service is good, but not great. There is a sign posted outside saying that they are closing. No closing date is listed. Suggestion: call ahead if planning a trip.

Went here on a Saturday afternoon with a group of friends, just before the lunch crowd and we were all happy we went. For $10.99 the lunch buffet featured many yummy Indian dishes. My favorite was the Paneer Tikka as it was tasty and not...More

Entering the restaurant the "host/waiter/busboy" slowly brought us to a table. It took a while for our waitress to come over as well. They both seemed sleep deprived. The service could not have been slower. The décor was dreary as well. That explains why there...More

Their lunch buffet doesn't have as many options as some other similar options in the area, but it's consistently delicious and cheap at about $12 per person. The buffet includes fresh buttered or regular Naan and a couple of dessert options. Highly recommended value for...More
