My husband and I have been here a couple of times, mainly for gatherings with friends. Each time we leave we always say we will never return as the owner constantly tries to up sell the entire time you are eating. We also experienced the surprise at the bill with the extra $6charge for 2 tiny hot sauces we assumed... More

$16.00 buffet dinner - sounds great.... the thing we did not appreciate was the server asking if we wanted things without telling us it was an extra cost. The server asked if our table wanted hot sauce as they do not put hot sauce on the food for the buffet. We thought sure why not put some kick to our... More

We eat here at least twice a month. If your not sure what to order try - chicken pakoda, chana marsala, shrimp korma and butter chicken. The owner knows our order by heart and it's excellent every time! The owner is also very friendly as he talks to everyone in his restaurant. There is a buffet, but we enjoy our... More

Ordered chicken korma and naan bread. The korma sauce was actually white which is something i've never seen before. It lacked flavour and was bland. The rice that it came with was not flavoured, it simply tasted like white rice instead of basmati or jasmine. Boring and plain. The naan bread was extremely small and it looked store bought rather...

I found the food VERY spicy but others in my party were happy with it. What I really hated was the way they kept implying that they would GIVE you additional things and then billing you for them. At no time did they tell you the cost of anything. It was certainly implied that these were provided as a special... More

This place is great for eat in or take out. Many tasty North Indian dishes. Good prices and large helpings (one entree could feed 2 people). I prefer the menu to the buffet as there's better selection.

Picked up some takeout and was very impressed. The portion sizes were just right and everything was delicious. The butter chicken was great but it was outshined by the flavour of the Beef vindaloo. Will definitely be back for more.
