Food good, service is slow and the people are sooooo unfriendly!!!! We have come to this restaurant may times, and every time we leave we feel as though we are not welcomed in this place. There are to many other Indian restaurants in the area that I rather give my money too.

The first time we ate at the restaurant we loved it. A month later we take out it was a disaster. We order lamb and it tasted like a dead raccoon. We threw away everything. Never again

The food is very good. Since our family are regulars at this restaurant, the waiter always throws in a few extra treats at no cost. We also enjoy the lunch buffet on weekdays. It gives us an opportunity to try different dishes and it is economical.

My fiancé and I dined at Neelam on Valentine's Day. It was our first experience there. We were warmly greeted by the owner when we arrived. He and his staff were very hospitable and kind. My glass of water was never empty. The dining room had a intimate atmosphere. The food was authentic and fresh. The owner even brought us... More

Have eaten here for many years. The food is always good - if not great - very consistently so. Louis is always smiling and the staff is always congenial and helpful.

Very good food, reasonable price. We go there mainly for lunch as this is a self-service buffet, so no waiting. Once we went for dinner and the service was very slow.

We took some risk by hosting a birthday party at this restaurant because we had never been there, and Indian restaurant experiences are usually a hit or miss kinda deal. We were pleasantly surprised at the super-delicious food they prepared for us. Since then we have become regular diners. It's in town, quick service and good food. The ambience is... More
