Been here twice since moving to town. Delicious both times. Havent ordered off the menu because the buffet was hot and fresh with a good variety of choices. Will definitely return with family in the future. Wasnt impressed with their Chai tea, but I prefer Thai Chai tea, so something similar is what I was probably expecting

Best Indian food for many miles in any direction, but they do struggle with service. Not the place to go for dinner if you are in a hurry. I recently heard a rumor that they are closing, which would be a huge disappointment to me. With that said, it might be wise to place a call before planning a meal... More

So many Mexican and Steak restaurants, along with the usual chains, that an Indian restaurant was a welcome change. The food was good, along with the service. I do recommend it.

When I hit the front door, the waiter is already fixing my families drinks and seats us at our table that we always sit at. The food is outstanding. We have visited since it opened and will continue to as long as their doors are open.

The food is good because of the atmosphere and the herbs and spices. It is perfect for people who like to taste the spices with the burn.

This is a pleasant enough restaurant with average ambience. But, the food is very good. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I enjoyed the buffet but was underwhelmed by the lack of options. Also, the Naan bread was a bit toasty instead of soft and spongy, but the rice had a great flavor as did the two entree choices.

This place has the nicest management and servers I've yet to experience in Killeen. We always eat late and there are only around 4 or 5 other couples or families in the restaurant so service is fast. We have been wanting to try the lunch buffet but haven't made it there yet. I love the Saag Paneer and Naan.

I love this place and so does everyone in my family. No one on Earth makes better Saag Paneer. The taste is amazing and the staff are friendly. Perfect consistently

I decided to go for a ride on my motorcycle was feeling a little bit peckish stop the bike park that… And looked at restaurants and I was craving Indian food! I went on trip advisor, and found this restaurant and was interested in checking out the buffet and seeing what they had on their menu. The buffet itself had... More
