This was my 2nd time trying an Indian Buffet in NJ. I definitely appreciated their selections, which were more than the typical Indian buffets I've experienced in the past. They had three choices of biriyani and an okra dish that were all good. The spice level was definitely higher than the usual so I wouldn't recommend it for someone trying... More

Every alternate week, when i think of having a sumptuous meal, this is the first place which strikes my mind. The weekend buffet has a very good spread and i would recommend the non-vegetarians looking for south Indian style food to hit this place at least once. I enjoy eating slowly to cover all the dishes at this place when... More

Had decent food items for both veg and non veg. Food was awesome starting with mutton soup , chat , veg appetizers, chicken pepper fry , chicken 65, fish curry etc prepared to satisfy your buds. Biriyani was not up to the mark. Place is little cramped, too small place n crowded. Could have added few more deserts. Little costly... More

Buffet was excellent, we went on a SATURDAY, price was around $13, buffet had more varieties than any other typical restaurants, and as expected it's taste was awesome, we had to drive 1.30 hours to reach this hotel from my place, but still worth the drive ;) Earlier we made a catering order with them on my kids birthday party,...

A plate of Idli is charged $7 which I was willing to pay. But it was so disappointing when 3 micro idlis were hard and with not even a close texture or softness to real ones! One price online another is charged. Tasted almost everything including buffet in a years time. will never even enter this restaurant

Had worst experience. This place was serving expired Malai Kulfi, 3 months past the shelf life. When I asked why they were serving expired food items, they said it is coming from India (date format confusion) but actually it was manufactured in USA (had a big label that read MADE IN USA and also one item had 2/27/2016 as the...

The cuisine in this Restaurant is from many different regions of India, and the choices are both vegetarian and non-vegetarian. We learned that “Arusuvai” means “six tastes” in Tamil – a South Indian language. This leads to the fact that most of the foods cooked here represent the six tastes – spicy, sour, salty, sweet, bitter and pungent. When you... More

I was there with family for Saturday buffet. This is the place to go if are looking for authentic south Indian experience. Buffet station was clean, refilled frequently and the food was quite warm. There's a waiter close to the station, checking and filling. There were many varieties for veg and non-veg, apart from Idli, Vada, Dosa and Chakkara Pongal.... More

I am Indian and rarely go out for Indian food as it's typically Americanized versions of Punjabi food. I do love a good Masala Dosa which is from the South but most dosa places are small, unclean and only serve vegetarian food. Since I like to have a bit of protein and my son needs some meat on his plate,... More

If you are craving for South Indian Chettinand cuisine - you cannot miss this place. Great dosas and mini idlis. Kotthu paratha is a must have. Paneer vegetables like Palak Paneer or mutter paneer are terrific. Tadka daal is really nice. Kids can get a cone dosa. Fruit juices are really fresh. Paneer kathi roll is a specialty of this...
