Met with coworkers for lunch, all you can eat buffet. Gives you a chance to try different types of curry, and other less popular dishes. Fresh naan delivered to your table. Will definitely be coming back.

I was pleasantly surprised to find this gem in walking distance from my motel. The interior is really quite nice and I think adds to the dining experience. I am becoming a fan of those lush, beautiful Indian music videos. It was difficult to choose...More

We stopped by for dinner on our way home from San Diego. The food was fresh and very tasty. The servings were plentiful for the price. My family and I purchased $40 worth of food and we had more than enough to eat. The ambiance...More
