Have not eaten many Indian meals but have enjoyed the ones that I've tried. This is a small place with a good variety on the buffet. The food was fresh and tasty. Service was good. Prices fair.

We ordered some naan and curry. Curry (mutter paneer) was good. Naan was good too. People were courteous and restaurant was easily accessible. Didn't try the buffet though. Overall a good option for Indian food.

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We told the waitress that, and she was very helpful and offered several suggestions on the various dishes. This was also our first visit to an Indian restaurant. The waitress also asked about our drink choices. The...More

The interior was a bit dated but the important thing about a restaurant is the food and the food was excellent with very attentive service. I have a fussy wife and daughter and they both enthused about the food so no further comment is necessary....More
