Very good food, though variety is very limited for a range of Indian buffet! Dishes are majorly Indian, cant find anything Nepalese, may be the food habits are so similar, cant spot a difference! Good food though!

We were sold when we walked in. It’s fragrant and made my mouth water. I ordered the hot chai tea and lamb curry. My husband had the bison curry and an Indian Pilsner (can’t remember which but he liked it!) the service was good too....More

Tasteless slop. Don’t. Came late lunch, buffet almost empty. No definitive flavors in cold chai, rice pudding, carrot pudding, curries. Slop. Pass this one by.More

They serve the best chai I have had out side of Nepal. Everything is delicious. My husband enjoys being able to practice his Nepali.

We were looking for something a little different. This buffet was a very tasty lunch. It was $10 all you can eat. We were able to sample a wide variety of options this way.

Delicious, with interesting ambiance. Authentic cuisine. The cuisine shares many dishes with Indian dishes, but with some differences. It is a mellow experience.
