Used to be they gave you a break if you were vegetarian (not taking any meat items) with the buffet priced at 12.99. However on the last 2 visits, we were charged the 15.99. IMHO, that is way too pricey for a vegetarian meal. Daughter has turned Vegan which made it that much harder to find no milk/egg/butter/cheese items and yet ended up paying $15.99. Absolutely will not return to this place again.

Nice place to have a buffet lunch here. Lots of varieties of South Indian and North Indian food. Very crowded and noisy during the weekends. Food is excellent. Dosa's are awesome and so are the iddlis. Good non veg options as well if you want to try some of the chicken and goat curry options

Hubby n I went for their weekend lunch buffet. The sambhar, rasam and vada was amazing. Ditto for the amazing appam and sweet coconut milk. I wish they had a chaat counter instead of just chhole. The wheat halwa was amazing. Not so much for the balushai which was soft and soggy. All in all good food. Ate the veg so don’t know much about non veg food. Hubby thought it was good so will take his word for it.. need to go back to try menu items
Atmosphere is more like a cafeteria at a high school or college due to the noise. Don’t expect quiet meal at buffet. Also check out process needs to be better organized. Very chaotic. They need to anticipate the rush hour.
Regardless I will be back for the food and keep my fingers crossed for a better ambience.

Wonderful food. I did not know the names of everything I ate, but it did not matter, EVERYTHING was wonderful or at least good. Really a special night and thanks for warm hospitality and great food.
