The lunch buffet is fabulous! A mix of dishes each time you go, great spices, fresh dishes and excellent taste. The lunch dishes are medium and mild. If you prefer a little hotter or spicy try a visit for dinner where you can choose your dish. The food is authentic, clean and tasty. The heat or spice level as required... More

Consistently delicious food and perfectly spiced. One of the best Indian restaurants around by far! Biryanis are outstanding and also flavorful.

Food good, service is slow and the people are sooooo unfriendly!!!! We have come to this restaurant may times, and every time we leave we feel as though we are not welcomed in this place. There are to many other Indian restaurants in the area that I rather give my money too.

The first time we ate at the restaurant we loved it. A month later we take out it was a disaster. We order lamb and it tasted like a dead raccoon. We threw away everything. Never again

The food is very good. Since our family are regulars at this restaurant, the waiter always throws in a few extra treats at no cost. We also enjoy the lunch buffet on weekdays. It gives us an opportunity to try different dishes and it is economical.
