We recently tried their lunch buffet..it was horrible taste.We didnt like anything.The reason this restaurant has good reviews is that 99% customers were non Indians ,so they don't know what authentic Indian food is.Even the cutlery and chairs were greasy and dirty.

I don't often go to Indian restaurants but this was excellent. We had Chicken Tikka masala, Eggplant Bhartha, Penjabi Samosa, Chicken Curry and tendoori Chicken, Peas Pulao. Everything was excellent! Lots of amazing flavors. Ok service. Decor strip mall Indian. But the food is great and the service was adequate. Will definitely be back!!

You never quite know what to expect with Indian restaurants. Sometimes busy, sometimes slow, always just a little different. When I arrived at 6 on a Tuesday, the place was dead. Went to their very small bar to order food to go. By the time I left at 6:20 the place was hopping. Servers at bar and the gentlemen who... More

Nice place, not a huge restaurant so the food is always fresh. We were greeted by the owners and had a selection of things they decided on for us and everything was great. The tandoori chicken, lamb, dal, mint chutney, naans were all perfect and fresh. We were not rushed and had a very enjoyable meal. Will make sure to... More

Excellent selection and value. Helpful service. Well stocked buffet. I have found that many Indian lunch buffets are only offered M-F, now weekends, so I appreciated that.

India's food is always consistent and good. This is a good place for people who have not tried Indian food to start. Their food is good but not overly spicy. Their staff is always attentive and friendly. It is a relaxed atmosphere yet elegant at the same time. Highly recommended.

Chicken tikka and saag paneer were the stars. Fried vegetables and naan were very good as well. Tandoori grill was a little dried out, so I docked them a star. Great service, nice atmosphere. I would return.

There is quite a number of tasty items on the menu ! Service is a bit slow , possibly due to the crowds. Parking is a bit cramped.

Although they say India' s restaurant but this restaurant is run by Pakistani folks! It offers north Indian food but they don't serve south Indian food. Not so great place. Staff is friendly. Food is just average. Ambiance is like a typical Indian restaurant in US.
