The ambience was fine. The buffet spread had three chicken one mutton curry. Two veggie curry. One pulav and one chicken biriyani. The dessert was carrot halva and kheer. The food was not hot at 12.45 noon. The tandoori chicken was pretty dry and meat was hard

Lunch with co workers. Pretty good Indian buffet. I like this kind of Indian food but regret it the next day. Food is not very expensive.

#Maanas - You cannot expect a worst Restaurant than Maanas when it comes to "Customer Service". If you want to have a relaxing time and good food, this is not the place... Above all if you have "Self Respect" ... This is absolutely not the place. Yes, their food is "not bad" but they treat customers as if they are... More

I used to come here all the time. Being Indian, I am picky about restaurant food and found this place to be authentic, tasty with lots of variety on their buffet, but today's visit changed all that. The restaurant has changed ownership and the food was horrible! Not only that, for a vegetarian the options were miserable! Imagine an Indian... More

Everything there tasted horrible as some newbee has cooked it. Will never go back. I am disappointed in waste of family time and money on 1st day of new year

My wife and I went on a week night and there were only two other tables occupied with a total of eight people. I ordered a Mulligatawny Soup. Twenty minutes later I had to search for our waiter and ask about it. He seemed surprised that I wanted it before dinner. It came out immediately. It was another 20 minutes... More

Food it good, ample space to move around during buffet times. A good variety of Indian dishes. Close by a lot of offices yet has enough parking for the crowds

Friendly service but not attentive at all. Waited 20 minutes to just order. Every time I come the wait for food is pretty long. The food is usually very good, but the wait is very frustrating. This restaurant would easily get a 5 from me if the service was even slightly better.

I visited many times and ordered different food. Last time ordered goat curry, it tested like tomato soup. Will not go again and will ask others not to go.

when it started a few years ago, they had excellent service and food quality. Now since it became a popular place for Indians, the service and the quality of the food started to deteriorate showing evidence of lack of the initial enthusiasm by the management to keep the same standards as at the start. They take a long time to... More
