This restaurant serves very nice South Indian food, with hints of coastal Karnataka tastes. Excellent choice in buffet, both afternoon n dinner, all through the week. Waiters are attentive and take care to ensure that hot food IS always available. Would definitely recommend Hoysala. They have enough space for smaller gatherings too.

Super authentic, efficient, extremely warm/hospitable, very broad range of the Hoysala cuisine - all features make this very easily the best value for your money on this side of the Atlantic! Because of it's popularity, the place gets crowded very easily. You have to out up with it, because it is well worth it!

Great Sunday Buffet Lunch! $14 per Person! Curry Goat, chicken Tandoori, samosas, many different kinds of Rice & Peas & Vegetables! We were the only Non Indian People! Very Authentic Indian Food at a Great Selection! Reasonably Priced! The deserts were one of my favorite parts: Carrots Soufflé with Pistachios & Cherries Very Good!

Delightful find in our new neighborhood. Hidden in a nondescript strip mall and well worth the trouble finding. This was my first encounter with South Indian cuisine and I'm a fan! Delicious flavor profile and taste, so different from other regional Indian cooking. Large selection of vegan and vegetarian dishes, with chicken, fish and goat on the menu for omnis.... More

Heard about this restaurant a while ago, but never got chance to visit this place. Loved their buffet. Items not in great number, but can not less too. Almost all the dishes we tried were yummy. Ambiance wise ok ok, but food matters and they hit bulls eye!!

The location was good and I thought I had seen a picture where it looks cute. I was wrong about that one but first I'll tell you about the food. Almost everyone in the restaurant was Indian, and they were all eating from the buffet which on Saturday night was a surprise to me. ...Most Indian restaurants I've ever been... More

In my last trip, I ended up eating here a few times and loved it. The buffet selection is excellent, I did not try any non veg stuff. Veg stuff was very good, Bhajji, dosa, idli, dry aloo were all great. On top of it the device is friendly and informal. Great value, highly recommended.
