Atmosphere: plain, Service: average, Food: no better than mediocre, Prices, VERY HIGH. A disappointment, really, certainly not worth the prices. Uninspired decor, decent service, but food well below good. Too much money for too little quality. I won't go back.

I really enjoy the selections of their buffet plus naan. Make sure you are hungry when you come here so you can get your money's worth. Great food. Big place and I think they also do private events. Lots of parking around.

We have had some good meals and not so good meals. A not so good meal to me is when a lamb diish has some chewy grizzly bits in it. Ruins things for me. Pricey. Have no plans to go back.

The menu is very extensive but they are able to provide tasty dishes throughout. I would avoid any of the goat dishes as the meat is tough, but otherwise have been very pleased with chicken and lamb. Vegetarian dishes are particularly good. Buffet at lunchtimes...More
