We had the lunch buffet. It's pretty simple and straight-forward. There's nothing too exotic on the actual buffet. The menu has some interesting Indian food, though. However, the service is very lacking. Little attention is given to the customer. I had to remind her of...More

This was our second visit to this restaurant so we got a little adventurous...tried some menu items that were out of the ordinary (an okra dish, a couple other of the veggie items). The food was delicious, the portions were large, and the service was...More

The items are very limited as a buffer, however, food is tasty. The service of the restaurant is poor.

Visited here on a Saturday night when the football team was out of town.....outings are always so much more enjoyable on non-football weekends! We ordered four different entrees, lamb, chicken, and two vegetarian, and asked for a range of spiciness. All four were delicious! The...More
