The buffet is always wonderful. They have a good variety of choices and the restaurant is very clean. We just love their food! We took our daughter, who is gluten free, and that worked very well. The staff are very friendly and attentive.

Best and most reasonably priced Indian buffet in the Bay Area. High marks for quality, selection, price. Try the dinner buffets on Fri/ Sat as well. We often come out to this place from the City of SF when we can.
