Lacking distinct Indian flavors...disappointing and have tried three times. Friendly staff and modest surroundings. Maybe toned down to appeal to NL palate?

We went for a dinner buffet and its not even moderate.Over priced buffet menu and taste not so good except the sweet. It would be good if they consider to revise the menu options and focus to provide better taste.

We found this restaurant almost by accident. It's location wasn't great. We got a good deal on the lunch buffet on a Tuesday. Food was very tasty, and the owner couple were friendly and helpful. The buffet was appropriate at $15, not $20.

Went for lunch on a day where the buffet was focused on Indian food. Delicious fresh dishes. Particularly loved the butter chicken, the beef couscous and the vegetable samosas. Seriously the Butter chicken is one of the best I've ever had. Highly recommend the place.
