Met a friend for lunch. Wait staff was fairly attentive. Buffet was varied and vegetarian dishes were noted. I'm not an Indian food expert...this was mildly spicy so don't worry about too much heat. A complement of sauces and desserts rounded out the buffet.

My friend and I were here today for their $11 lunch buffet. Unfortunately, our experience was not positive. None of the waiters cared to interact or smile. They took forever to get us more naan, and even longer to refill water glasses. Buffet trays, especially...More
