There are not many Indian options near Hilton Short hills, so went to explore this place. Very nice food and service, I tried both Veg and Non-Veg options and the food was authentic Indian, and managed by Indians. Recommended.

Extremely friendly and hard-working staff, combined with fantastic and flavorful food, makes Begum a can't-miss spot for Indian food. The buffet is awesome for $12 -- great array of veggies, salad, samosa, soup, meats, rice, etc -- and fills you up for the entire day....More
