I always do the lunch buffet as you get a great opportunity to try a dozen different items and find out which are your favorites

I usually plan on trying something different but end up selecting the chicken tikka and asking for it to be #2 in hot spiciness. My husband always chooses #10 as in "HOT".

My Wife and I ate here, it was a recommendation from someone from the school house at Fort Eustis. We haven't had a good Indian Curry place since Japan. Mango Lasse and Butter Chicken Curry is a must.

This place is good for having a simple but good Indian food. Buffet during lunch is good. Don't expect extraordinary but simple tasty foods. Yes it's Indian and you get that taste. Its even good for having every day lunch. Not that costly. In 10$ very good indian lunch buffet.

Excellent food, good ambience. The service was also exceptional. Would definitely recommend the restaurant to anyone visiting Colonial Williamsburg. The mango lassi was excellent.

We are from the UK and live close to what is considered the curry Mecca so used to eating good quality Indian food. We have also been to Indian several times so know our way around this cuisine.
