I just love Indian food. It's simple, get the buffet at a good price and a soft drink. Then sit of take out to eat. The food is great tasting at a great price. ENJOY!!

Visited Phily with family and found this restaurant. Food is limited variety but delicious. They have a small buffet with few veggie and chicken curries n rice, naan served separately. Food is charged per pound basis and good quality. Tried their mango whipped lassi and it was average. I recommend this restaurant for Phily visitors.

Though taste-wise everything was fine, I've had far better elsewhere. The naan wasn't the light and flaky kind I expect from an Indian restaurant. All the korma sauces were very soupy, not creamy. Perhaps a different style... guess I just have a preference. Wouldn't bother getting food here again.

I had dinner here. It is average Indian food. The food quality could have been better. The per-pound pricing of the buffet food was unusual and expensive. Good but not great for vegetarians.

I've eaten twice here recently, when making visits at Thomas Jefferson. The food is simply superb. The chicken vindaloo is incredible - very tender chicken, delicious flavor, and appropriate spiciness. The food is served quite quickly and is worth every penny. Will definitely be back.

Good tasting food and nice buffet. Lots of vegetarian options and friendly manager. Parking is a little weird but that's what u get for Philly. Beware of the coconut water - zico brand is plastic tasting.

I eat here about 1-2x per Week. It has the best, healthiest, classical Indian food in town (other than New Delhi in west philly, which they own) For what this place is, it is 5 star quality. This is a quick takeout / eat in place for lunch and dinner. Both buffet options and menu options Pros: food is excellent,... More

Yesterday we spent the day exploring Philly on foot and later in the evening wanted to order in. I suggested Indian, and this restaurant was well ranked within the Indian cuisine category on GrubHub. BWe ordered lamb curry, chicken tikka, saag paneer, chicken tandoori, naan, rice and gulab jamun. Hubby is a Brit and knows his curry inside and out,... More

I have had occasion to try out the food from this place on several occasions over the past year. I waited to write this review as Indian Restaurants appear to change hands and sometimes come and go. The quality to appears to vary, perhaps upon the presence or absence of a particular chef. There are several positives: It is Clean,... More
