Dinner buffet Saturday night is on until 9pm we arrived shortly after 8.30 almost everything was cold. Usually the lunch buffet is good with plenty of choice, so I was expecting a much bigger spread although choice was pretty varied including Goat Biryani which I...More

Worth visit though on main road in crazy part of central ave. Food and service is always good. Great deals and coupons usually available in papers. Take out is easy with parking meters. Kids usually do well here (lot of space and low key).
