This is a great way to be introduced to Indian food. The buffet allows you to sample many different foods. Everything we tried was great!

This is a small family run Place, clean and was interesting decor. It's set in a pretty nondescript strip mall. The food is very good, from Azerbaijan, which is like Turkish food. We had an assortment of appetizers and shared a main course.

Ambiance at that... More

We've eaten here many times for dinner so it's time to give this restaurant it's due. It's wonderful. We usually go to a small dosa in Hicksville for vegetarian food but occasionally come here with friends. There is no shortage of delicacies to choose from and we've tried many.
