On a recommendation for something different, 2 of us stopped in here on a Wednesday night. We both dislike spicy food and are fairly set in the Indian food that we order. The location is in a strip mall and I found it surprising that they have a buffet lunch. Besides one person eating at the bar, the rest of... More

We returned to the Minerva in November 2016 and it was every bit as good as we remembered. We went at lunchtime when they offer a self-service buffet. The staff were welcoming and very attentive. The food is well laid out and we were encouraged to return as many times as we could manage. The dishes were fresh and we... More

This is the perfect place to go if you're looking for an affordable Indian lunch buffet outside of Boston. The food was DELICIOUS, there was a great selection, and the staff was really helpful. I also appreciated that the vegetarian and non-vegetarian foods were separated. Favorite dish: paneer kurchan

I've been to Minerva a few times for lunch and I enjoyed the meals- went with yoga class from WOW to take out our instructor Sagarika out for her birthday- she really like the food. Would recommend it

They have good buffet however it was not the best for sure. Rice was very dry and crunchy. Curries were not so hot. Service was good. Tasted good. Wish Rice was soft.

I had been wanting to go for Indian food for some time and usually go into Cambridge or Boston for a buffet, since I am not familiar with Indian food, but decided to try this one close to my office, my MISTAKE, I should have known when there was no one else in the restaurant but me at 1:00 in...

Stopped in for dinner when I was in town for work, and I really loved it. I am rarely unhappy with Indian food, to be fair, but this place definitely met all of my expectations. Samosas were lovely, as were both my entrée and the entrée that my coworker got. It was not very busy when we came in on... More

We needed a restaurant nearby the Route 128 train station at evening rush hour. Minerva Indian more than filled the bill, a nice surprise in a nearby strip mall! We had the vegetarian thali and loved the dishes they selected to offer. Low on oily food, high in flavor, nice range of breads. Our waiter was meticulous, courteous. We asked... More
