Checked Trip Advisor on our trip from New Jersey to Boston and chose UTSAV with happy results. The staff was great, the food wonderful and the service quick!

Was a guest of an Indian friend for their buffet. About a half dozen or so items to choose from. My friend warned me what were the real hot items in each dish. Even with his assistance, it wasn't until the evening until the spiciness...More

I have visited recently on weekday and really horrible taste of food. Service, I can say okay. We don’t have anything to have from buffet and 12.5$. Really no value for price.

Went to the weekend buffet for the first time (have done the weekday one a few times). It was very good though some dishes a bit spicy for me but then I'm a wimp! Service is very attentive without being intrusive and waiters all very...More

This tiny Indian restaurant has the most authentic, delicious Indian food I have ever eaten in the USA. Snuggled into an inconspicuous strip mall somewhere in Connecticut, owner Joe and his staff provide a culinary experience worthy of NYC. Even the NY TIMES thinks so,...More

I'm not sure about the Wethersfield location, but in Vernon the buffet is only at lunchtime. You would order from the dinner menu at dinnertime.
