Ok this is a hard one to review, because I love the food here, but I know the lunch buffet is small. There are only a few options, however the chicken tikka masala here is the best I ever had. The bread they bring to your table (nan) is amazing. I come here at least once a week.

Been here before and the food still rocks! We choose to irfer off the menu instead of the lnch buffet. My friend ordered chicken tikka masala mild and I ordered lamb tekka masala medium. Both were flaverful. My mango lassi was very good. Decor is nice and interesting. Service was fast. Prices are reasonable. BYOB.

I thought this would be a great Indian restaurant but no it was not. Indian food was bland and not a great variety. Do not go.

There's a lot going on in every one of this restaurant's meals. Indian food is normally fragrant and full of flavor, but Bollywood Tadka seems to bring it up a notch. All meals can be served mild or not spicy, but if you like hot food, just let them know and they'll play around with it for you to get... More

I went for the Friday lunch buffet this past week at the suggestion of my co-worker who happens to be friends with the owner. The level of service was not very good in that my water glass was only filled the initial time and never topped off again. The lunch buffet had a large selection of dishes including goat curry...

This was a recent find for us, but it has quickly become one of our favorite go-to places to eat - both for take-out and dine-in.

I eat INDIAN food frequently in many markets. this restaurant Ranks highly among the dozen or so I have visited. Food was tasty and well prepared. We asked for lamb vindaloo with "medium heat" but it honestly had no heat at all, but it was still good. Atmosphere is nicer than you might expect from the outside appearance. Service was... More
