This restaurant offers an all-you-can-eat meal. Food was pretty good. Staff was very friendly. Generally, over-priced for the food served.

I came here with three other people, two of whom aren't vegetarians. But all of us really liked the food. The place has an authentic Indian feel, and the food is (I think) in keeping with Ayurvedic dietary principles. That doesn't detract from the taste!...More

Being fan of Vedic wisdom and high requirements for taste, I could not help but come to this place, as it bears a very special name, which also means their responsibility for the taste. If the food will not be you medicine, then medicine will...More

This is a place of fix-priced menus -- around $10 for lunch and $16 for dinner. The food is probably healthy (rice, legumes, cooked vegetables), and you do get "refill" for anything you wish, but the flavors are bland and fail to satisfy the appetite...More
