Been here before and the food still rocks! We choose to irfer off the menu instead of the lnch buffet. My friend ordered chicken tikka masala mild and I ordered lamb tekka masala medium. Both were flaverful. My mango lassi was very good. Decor is nice and interesting. Service was fast. Prices are reasonable. BYOB.

I thought this would be a great Indian restaurant but no it was not. Indian food was bland and not a great variety. Do not go.

There's a lot going on in every one of this restaurant's meals. Indian food is normally fragrant and full of flavor, but Bollywood Tadka seems to bring it up a notch. All meals can be served mild or not spicy, but if you like hot food, just let them know and they'll play around with it for you to get... More

There were lot of things but not fully prepared.Chat papdi was lacking patatoes etc.Food was good but lacked authentic flavor. Sweet dishes though they had three were sub standard.

I went for the Friday lunch buffet this past week at the suggestion of my co-worker who happens to be friends with the owner. The level of service was not very good in that my water glass was only filled the initial time and never topped off again. The lunch buffet had a large selection of dishes including goat curry...

This was a recent find for us, but it has quickly become one of our favorite go-to places to eat - both for take-out and dine-in.

Multiple vegetarian options, and all dishes have distinctive flavors and tastes. Lunch buffet is reasonably priced and very yummy.

I eat INDIAN food frequently in many markets. this restaurant Ranks highly among the dozen or so I have visited. Food was tasty and well prepared. We asked for lamb vindaloo with "medium heat" but it honestly had no heat at all, but it was still good. Atmosphere is nicer than you might expect from the outside appearance. Service was... More

Fantastic restaurant! The food is delicious, and I love the lunch buffet. The people are friendly and attentive. They go above and beyond to provide the best service, like bringing additional complementary items. They always have coupons (and let you reuse them). My whole family loves to come here, both for sit-down and take-out.
