Love the place. We normally go there for lunch buffet once a month. The food just taste so Indian and love the plain naans, so good. A variety of curry you can choose from and my favourite is butter curry chicken. Highly recommend!

The buffet is nowhere near as spicy as regular restaurants, which is good I guess. Haven't tried their regular menu so can't say if that's different. Good food for what you pay, good location too. No complaints.

I had buffet there this evening and the customer service and food were not bad. They charge me around $21 for buffet and of course one needs to pay some tips as well.

The naan is the best I've had. Delicious Indian food, but I always leave wanting more heat in my meal. They've dialled down the spice-o-meter a bit too much. Maybe to appeal to families?

My wife and I went here and ate the buffet. My wife bit into a piece of broken glass in one of the dishes. We brought it to the attention of the waiter and his response was "Oh, ok". They didn't even remove the dish that had the broken glass. We'll never eat here again.

We stopped by for lunch. It took us about 5 minutes to get a parking spot. The buffet had a good selection (beef, chicken, vegetables, dessert) and the food quality was also good. The spice level was moderate. The food was fresh and tasty

Always good! Staff are very friendly and most helpful if explanations are required. Prices are very reasonable and portion size is very adequate unless you are a HUGE eater.
