I attended a wedding here in the party hall and the facilities are decent. There is ample parking with overflow parking in the quality inn nearby. Food is mediocre - not the best buffet in the area. Party hall is decent.

We visited this Indian restaurant which is in Edison New Jersy. The restaurant is spacious and serves both veg and non veg. The food and service are both good and price is reasonable. There is a big parking space available outside the restaurant.
