The food is cheap, by the pound, but the spices are bland and sauces are watery. If I could rewind I would skip the buffet and order the lamb samosas and a mango lassi. Those were the stars of our meal. The garlic naan was...More

I walked past this place while walking to the Liberty Bell and thought I'd stop in on my way back for dinner. It's a tiny little place with a tiny little buffet. They have their menu posted outside, so I got a good idea of...More

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!!

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...More

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...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,...More
