This is excellent Indian food, the buffet is great! Unlike many it is clean, and locally owned. We go often for decades.

I enjoy Minar's and if you get a chance, try a Taj Mahal beer. We are blessed in the Utica area to have so many good international restaurants. Don't be afraid of the chicken, it looks a little different, but tastes like any other chicken....More
