A frequent and favorite INdian food destination for the entire family. Great selections on the lunch buffet when you want a quick lunch or can stay longer.

Had a great lunch buffet-the food was excellent, service good, overall I would say this is the best Indian Restaurant around. Apparently the new owners, cook are Nepali-that May be one reason the food tasted slightly different and tasty!

Food: Not bad, but we ordered "medium" spice and it was very bland. Service: Terrible. The waitress was obviously new and poorly trained. She didn't know the drink or food menu. Poor follow-up and no service. I will give them another chance but this was...More

A hidden gem behind Taco John's and Walgreens in Coralville. Still the best Indian restaurant in town, with a wide variety of flavors and many choices. The lunch buffet now includes very tasty goat along with chicken, saag, veggies dishes, dals, soup and several salads...More
