We ordered Dal and Paneer. The flavor was other worldly as far as the curries were concerned. Breads were done just right. My wife is extremely hard to please when it comes to indian food and she said it was finger licking good.

Favorite Sunday Brunch. Quiet setting, excellent buffet and caring service. The chef varies the offerings from week to week (while retaining favorites like Chicken Tikka Masala) so we do not tire of the offerings. Interesting vegetables such as okra and spinach.
