We have always visited at Lunch Time Buffet. Good mix of Vegetarian and Non-Vegetarian choices. Place is not too big - go early to avoid wait times. Save some room for the dangerously tempting Bakery choices attached to the Restaurant. Or eat up and take the Pastries home !

The so called Indian hotel with not at all Indian taste. Our group has ordered many veg and non veg items. For all the veg and non veg preparation gravy was same. Never had seen a yellow gravy(souce) for malai kofta. Even the koftas were hard like stone. The taste was not at all up to the mark for Indian... More

I have been here a few times for the lunch buffet, as it is conveniently located in Rice Village and they offer an employee discount. The food is great, especially the Saag Paneer! The wait staff is attentive and friendly, and they provide a parking validation for those utilizing the Rice Arcade garage. It is a bit pricey for lunch,... More

The restaurant is decent, in rice village. The food is good as well however the lamb was not that great. The staff was good and food came reasonably quick. Would definitely come back!

A great place for grown ups to have dinner and have a conversation where you can hear one another! Also, you can always tell if the food is good when you look at the clientelle - people of... More

Tucked away in second level of Rice Village strip center, just off a parking garage, this bistro consistently delivers all the quality dishes you would expect from a top Indian restaurant. I knew a similarly named restaurant in London and this one near Rice University lives up to that standard. Outstanding dishes include chicken pekora, lamb biryani, curries, and the... More

Me been in India several times gives me opportunity to understand the difference between the local food in India and the one that is made here, I can say that this place is... More

I've got a large, young family and wanted to introduce them to Indian food. We went on a weekday after visiting the Natural Science museum, and the staff was friendly. We were the only family, it was mostly business folks and they were still friendly. Turnover on food was quick so the food was never cold and tasted fresh.

The food was excellent, but what really stood out was the service. Generally service is an afterthought at a buffet. They were attentive without being imposing.
