Loved the first few times we went for dinner -- nice wines, excellent food, good atmosphere with modern music.... but then we discovered the lunch buffet. So reasonable and so many choices. Great for me since I don't eat chicken or meat but my family...More

The chicken starters are really good, as is the chaat. The naan breads are incredibly soft and fluffy

Went to the lunch buffet with some friends at work. The sauce for the Tikka Masala was one of the worst I've had. It tasted like it was made by Chef Boyardee. The tandoori chicken was kind of dry. The buffet included mandarin chicken which...More
