An oasis among fast food and chain restaurants. Visiting from CA, I was quite impressed with the menu and the meal cannot get more authentic. Owner is a lovely woman who prides herself on making sure her customers enjoy themselves.

Visited for a lunch buffet. The food is very good, for a fair price, and the service was top notch. The staff are all so friendly, warm, and inviting. Will definitely be back!

Came here for dinner on a Friday night. Only a few tables at a time but the service was on the slower side. However the food was great and would definitely come back if in the area again.

This was my first time at an Indian restaurant and the waitstaff was very helpful in recommending what to have! My boyfriend and I got our individual dishes of lentil curry and lamb curry served with rice. We also got naan, a chickpea appetizer, and rice pudding all for $30. Great bargain. It was truly a cultural experience. We even... More

What an amazing place! Visited this restaurant recently and I must say I was happy not just with the food but with the hospitality too. The Garlic Naan is a must try .. the buffet has some delicious dishes .. and the warmth with which Naresh, the proprietor, attends to you is lovely! Definitely worth a re visit!

I am a real Indian food lover, and this is the worst experience I've ever had at an Indian restaurant. The food was not hot, poorly seasoned, and simply awful. The only appetizing thing on the buffet was the naan bread, which we filled up on since we could barely stomach the tikka masala (normally my favorite), which was an... More

Great food. Great service. Love the atmosphere. We have eaten at several Indian restaurants and this is definitely one of the best. Love the onion chutney especially. The naan is also great. The lady who runs the restaurant is so sweet and the service is really good.

This little Indian buffet restaurant is pretty good. The service is a bit slow but not a big deal and they are very friendly. The Indian food is very good and a pleasant change from all the American fast food restaurants. The bread is fantastic!
