I have visited recently on weekday and really horrible taste of food. Service, I can say okay. We don’t have anything to have from buffet and 12.5$. Really no value for price.

Went to the weekend buffet for the first time (have done the weekday one a few times). It was very good though some dishes a bit spicy for me but then I'm a wimp! Service is very attentive without being intrusive and waiters all very...More

This tiny Indian restaurant has the most authentic, delicious Indian food I have ever eaten in the USA. Snuggled into an inconspicuous strip mall somewhere in Connecticut, owner Joe and his staff provide a culinary experience worthy of NYC. Even the NY TIMES thinks so,...More

Very simple presentation in a strip mall in the small Connecticut town. Absolutely superb cuisine, friendly and expert service. The value is very high and overall it is an exceptionally pleasant dining experience. Highly recommended.

We went to UTSAV for my birthday celebration, and it is my new favorite restaurant for special occasions. It is pricey. Everything at UTSAV is excellent/exceptional. It is colorful, beautiful inside.

We love Utsav! Our family goes often. They do gluten-free; the selections are wonderful; the waitstaff are a delight. The outside is nondescript, but inside is pretty and charming. There are romantic booths. The food is absolutely delicious. The other night we ordered one serving...More

We've been to Utsav twice so far and both times it's been amazing. We went last night to celebrate my daughter's 16th birthday and everything was superb. They also brought out some mango ice cream for her as a birthday treat and sang Happy Birthday!...More

I'm not sure about the Wethersfield location, but in Vernon the buffet is only at lunchtime. You would order from the dinner menu at dinnertime.
