We eat a lot of Indian food, and we were keen to try this place as we had business in the immediate area. It won’t win any awards for beauty, but it was clean enough and the staff was friendly and helpful. Because we wanted...More

Skip this restaurant. The Indian place in Greenwood is better. Arrived at this restaurant during lunchtime on a Friday. The restaurant was about 1/3 full. The buffet is extremely small, with few options. This was made worse by the fact that all meat dish options...More

There are not too many options for Indian food on the Southside, and although nowhere near the quality of Indian food I’ve had elsewhere in the world it’s pretty good for Indiana. I almost always order carry out, although I have dined in a few...More

Best Indian lunch buffet in indy! Like the service, they do it just right, don't hesitate you all the time, but they make sure you have everything ok. My favorite is curry chicken and their mango dessert. They serve ice water from copper pitchers, fresh...More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in Indianapolis! Food is always so good. Service isn't the best, but since its buffet, it doesn't matter. I think its more typical Indian style service than American, and I will take it! This is must at...More

This is one of our favorite Indian restaurants in the Indianapolis area. Located in a strip mall, the restaurant itself is long and narrow. While we've eaten there once, more likely we order take out. Vegetarian dishes are very tasty--aloo gobi, bangan bharta, vegetable curry....More

We lived in Indianapolis until 2014, and this was our favorite Indian restaurant. Everything tastes great. The Naan is awesome, and the Mango Lassi is a kids' favorite. I love the spicy chicken and shrimp tikka. We always come back when we visit.

This restaurant has been reviewed by many other sites, and I find it unusual that no one has made mention of it previously to tripadvisor. I would enjoy writting a review. The place is noteworthy, and my experience there was wonderful. Hope to hear from you. Thank you!
