Nice atmosphere, a notch above many Indian/Mediterranean restaurants. Maybe priced slightly higher than some other places also, but still quite reasonable. Service was friendly but a little slow on our visit. Food was all very good! We will be back.

The lamb vindaloo is wonderful. Go for the lunch buffet. I loathe buffets because they are often picked over and not kept filled with fresh food. Not so here. Everything is fresh and recently out of the kitchen. The fruit/vegetable salad is amazing!

Weekday lunch buffet offered a variety of delicious vegetarian options and I ordered garlic naan off the menu. Great service- reasonable price. Only issue-background music was annoying.
