been here few times for lunch buffet, in heart of downtown so can be crowded but they have parking in rear, good variety of meats, food kept hot, good service, worth the money

We enjoyed the food here. This restaurant attracts many Indian customers. The samosas were good, but not great. We very much enjoyed the naan and our entree (a chicken tandoori sag) was excellent. The decor is modest. The service was attentive and good.

We really liked the service here. The food was good, we'd give the food 3 stars but the great service rounds it up.

We ate during their lunch buffet. It was delicious and I am still craving their food. I wasn't allowed to bring home what I couldn't finish though so I will not dine in next time. Very friendly staff.

You cane request smaller portion or ask waiter to get something for children. Best thing to do is go at lunch time when they have buffet so that children can try different things.
