Seems like they dont have proper chef and whatever they manage to prepare they sell in the name of Indian food. Cleanliness was bad.

Good tasting standard Indian food. Friendly service, decent seating, large place (2nd floor of a commercial building). Wish they had more variety in the buffet (or more volume!). Great central location for popping by during a workday lunch hour! Date attended is approximate (likely prior...More

The buffet offers lots of choices of veggies and meat. But they could have had an other choice of soup, more desert, and a variety of taste more different. I liked it anyway. The owners were kind and smily.

I love indian fod as it is spicy. This buffet has a large selection of dishes from salad bar to main course and then desert. I recommend going early so that all is fresh. I love the tandoori chicken and naan.

Expensive and most choices of food are either overcooked or bland or totally taste like [--]. It is a very popular spot but if they were not downtown where office workers have to hurry through lunch it would have closed a long time ago!!

I have eaten Indian food in many a city. The night I went there the food was superb. Hands down the best Indian Food I've ever eaten. Many dishes are not seasoned or prepared for our western taste, so be ready to eat food that...More

Some misses: no soup, store-bought mini samosas, floury naan, and everything served lukewarm. A few hits: several chicken dishes, including tandoori chicken and butter chicken; minced beef with chick peas; spinach; dessert balls in sugary sauce and rice pudding for dessert. Some of the main...More
