We stopped in around 6pm on Sat evening, just before it got crowded. Lamb Curry and Chicken Shahi Korma were terrific, as well as the naan. Service was friendly and attentive. The only reason I didn't give 5 out of 5 is the lack of ambiance. It's sort of one big room and got a little loud when crowded. The... More

Very good food with a nice selection of choices on the buffet. The food is tasty and flavorful, not just hot. Service is attentive with moderate noise level.

Had dinner here as a family recently. Service was excellent AND there was one waiter for the entire restaurant. Would give give stars but I think their prices, for the amount of food served (and or the lack of a salad or free naan) are too high.

Busy, and uncaring The wait staff seemed disconnected to the clientele.Basic Indian fare with a lunch buffet with vegetarian options. My Indian friends think this is very good and authentic. As an ugly American I find it tolerable fare with uninterested servers. How they don't have 25 percent walk offs is beyond me.

I first discovered AAB when a friend brought me samosas from there. I thought they were really good and have since been back many times just for samosas and have seldom been disappointed. Fresh and hot. Crispy and tasty filling. These are plump Punjabi samosas with a potato filling. The location on Grandview Ave is to die for and the... More

We tried Aab for dinner. The tandoori chicken is one of the best I've tried. We also had the lamb biryani which was excellent. The tandoori wa served w a side of dhal and the naan is extra.

Ate lunch at AAB. They had a buffet for $11:49 each. As I am not an Indian food buff, I thought that the buffet was rather limited in its variety and selections. There were about 16 or so items on the buffet to choose from, and 4 of them were desert, salad and fruit, two were some sort of a... More

The outside of the building looks a little rough -- but don't let it fool you! The inside was clean and well-lit, and the lunch buffet was AMAZING. My husband, who has travelled to India several times, claims the food is the best he's had outside of the country. The value for the food was excellent, and the service was... More

Came to Columbus for a conference and are big Indian fans; so we were excited to try out the AAB restaurant which is a few miles from the city-center. We ordered the India Special, which has a mateer paneer, and lamb dal; alongside a lamb curry, both our dishes came with plenty of white rice; we liked the pakora, (deep... More

We went there on a spur of the moment decision and we are so happy we did. We each ordered 3 styles of heat/spice and each dish was delicious. Loved the atmosphere. Our server was patient and very sweet. Looking forward to our next visit here!!!!
