Slow service but decent food. The chicken Tikka was very flavorful... The only complaint I have regarding the food is that they could have trimmed the chicken a little better because I got a couple rubbery pieces...

The Indian buffet last night was by far the best I have ever tasted. I did not care for one single item on the buffet but everything else was prepared far better than I have experienced at any other restaurant. The Baigan Masala was the best I have ever tasted in my life. The goat curry was absolutely delicious. Everything... More

I ate here last year. The food was decent enough. There is alot of good Indian food in the area so its easy to be picky.

The spices used are very nice ... I think they come from countries to the east of India ... i find this place a bit expensive considering the market around.

Visited on a Sunday for lunch buffet. The buffet spread is very limited, okay-ish ambiance, average tasting dishes. Bad service. Have to wait for 15 minutes for the stack of plates to be refilled at the buffet counter. Charge around 20% gratuity by default on the bill, even without providing any service.

The restaurant may not be super in ambience - but I love their Naan, especially Garlic Naan. Its very soft and deliciously flavored. I would go back there whenever I can for their Garlic Naan.

Several years ago, we used to do take-out from Biryani House, which was then a cramped and unappealing place to dine. The food was a bit rough around the edges. In the past year or so, however, the restaurant has had a huge makeover, expanding its size into a nice, open dining area and offering an evening buffet. We've eaten... More

I don't know what happened. I usually do a lot of research beforehand to make sure the restaurant passes muster but this one had a cafeteria feel, friendly but poor service, and the food was unmemorable. All I can think of is that they have false ratings generated by an SEO expert.
