I've been to Minerva a few times for lunch and I enjoyed the meals- went with yoga class from WOW to take out our instructor Sagarika out for her birthday- she really like the food. Would recommend it

They have good buffet however it was not the best for sure. Rice was very dry and crunchy. Curries were not so hot. Service was good. Tasted good. Wish Rice was soft.
