Terrible! Vegetable Samosa was frozen solid in the middle, gross! Naan was burned, and super thin, you could see through them. Ordered a Chai Tea - tasted like water, no joke. The waitress suggested I add sugar. I had to wear my coat and hat because it was so cold in the dining room. Took 2 hours to serve a... More

My mother was born in India, and my grandmother made Indian fare quite often. The food here is truly amazing. I brought my mother here on her last visit and she was amazed. She said it reminded her of her childhood. When ordering off the menu, you can choose the level of spiciness. Or, you can just eat the buffet.... More

Ate the buffet for lunch. Had to find our own menus, decided buffet would be quicker. Had to ask for drinks. Never cleaned off any tables in hour or so we were there. Food on buffet was too spicy for us, was not hot and for our meat eater friend not much meat. Wish we could have ordered from menu.... More

A lot of my friends have been raving about this place, so I went in for lunch when I was downtown. I stood there for a long time before a woman whom I assumed was a hostess or something emerged from the back and pointed to a table. So I sat. There was a buffet and she eventually came around...

We came here about 7pm on a recommendation from a friend; this was a weekday. We were seated right away, and there weren't that many people in the restaurant. At first, everything was okay, but it took forever to get our food. It was at least 45 minutes to an hour between ordering and being served. Furthermore, the waitress got... More

If you are willing to try something a bit different, give this a try. close to Broadway Ave. and near the university. Clean bright surroundings with an extensive Indian menu. Something for everyone depending on how willing you are to try something out of the ordinary. It took quite a while to receive our food after ordering but not too... 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 attentive. Large wine pours, freshly made naan. We ordered our food in the mid-range of... 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 service was not of the snappy Ruby-Tuesday style speed, but once you come to terms... More

We had a wonderful dinner here while travelling across the country. The waiters were attentive and the food was great! They have a lunch buffet, but we were too late for that, so ordered from the menu. Everything was delicious.
