chose the lunch buffet, good choice and tasted good. didn't realize that you were only allowed two small dosa's, so my wife asked for third one, and the waitress said she would have to pay extra but would let go on this occasion. OK no problem

Very tasty fresh and different from the usual burgers, Italian, sandwich, etc. norm. Be sure to try the dosai and the mango-based drinks and deserts--delicious!

Terrible! Service is so slow ...we were the only ones in the restaurant and it still took a LONG time. Ordered gobi manchurian ...it was stale, too salty and flavorless. Pani puri came with only potatoes and some sauce ...none of the other fixings! Coconut chutney is always stale ...tastes gross. The ONLY good thing is the batura and dosa... More

We have been here several times. Over the years the food has gotten worse, with the flavors deteriorating and the service being apathetic to the customers needs, though the ambiance has improved. Unfortunately there is no competition so it goes on.

On a recent visit didn't know there was a buffet lunch and decided to try to it. The buffet was better than expected. Despite the limited variety, this is probably the best all vegetarian eatery, at the best value, in town.
