I've lieved eight years of my life in South Asia so I know my stuff when it comes to Indian food. We ate here and found the food really bland. The staff were very apologetic and said they can't increase the spiciness because many clients complain about excessive spice. They offered us some hot sauce which wasn't really much of... More

My wife and I ended up here after our first choice was closed, and I'm glad that we did. She ordered the Chicken Tikka and it was extremely moist and tender and flavorful. The server was on point, with our glasses always full and the waiters answering our questions about the cuisine. The portions were also HUGE!

I don’t know a lot about Indian food, but I know what I like. I came here specifically at lunch time to try the buffet and for $12.99, you can’t beat the price. The restaurant was nearly empty around 11:30 am when we went, this meant we had great service (the waiter was constantly making sure our waters were filled).... More

Good buffet if in a hurry for a quick lunch. Small selection but food was good. Small seating area but wasn't crowded so was able to seat our party of 10.

Just stumbled upon this place and found it to be reasonably priced with good Indian food. The service was great, with a friendly waiter happy to assist. The Vindaloo we were warned would be hot (spicy) but it really was not at all, perhaps a slight tang but that is all. The poppadoms were very good and crispy, the Garlic... More

I adore Indian food, but this was not the REAL Indian food in terms of spices and flavours (despite the name of the place). I was there for lunch: a buffet (USD 15) which is ok, but the choice is a bit limited and the taste is not as expected. I tried all different meals and the best were tandoori... More

Just ok place... Not so good for Indians or Srilankan's. They don't treat us good. Its only good for americans co's they don't no the food very well. One curry dish can be shared by two people, but they will convince one curry for one only. and with all the food. Expensive for a indian food....

Lunch is a small buffet with limited options that are very stereotypical. Not very spicy. One appetizer option (pakoras), rice, chicken tandoori. two chicken curries, chana masala, and two other veg options. It was fine, but expensive for $12.95.
