Tried lunch buffet with office colleagues and it was an okay experience. We went early so there was no line but later on saw so many people in line to get in, get seated and picking the food. Had to ask attendants multiple times to remove used plates from our table. Guess they still need to learn so much of... More

One place I like to visit for the back home South Indian dishes, mainly from Karnataka. Totally vegetarian sumptuous and tasty, some times little,spicy food. Gretabuffet selections on a week day they have atleast 15 selections and on weekends 20 plus. The price is great, the place is humming, it's gone high tech, the seating is assigned by the iPad...

We were visiting Springfield, Virginia in July and I wanted some South Indian food. We googled this place and with a 3-3.5 star rating on trip advisor, thought of going. We were there July 30 for lunch. Didn't know they only offered buffet that day. Anyway, went in. There's a huge line inside get plates and food. The restaurant didn't... More

I went there with 4 others people. for dinner. We ordered thalis with dishes such as gutti-vankaya, paneer, etc - about 5 dishes for 5 people in the party. NOT one of the dishes was any good. None. No one said "this is great or good". They gave us Bagara Baingan and called it Gutti-Vankaya! and then the owner argued... More

A friend and I had lunch here this week. We arrived at 12:30, and were gestured toward a booth. We were the only non Indians in the restaurant, and I don't know if that was a problem for some of the staff or not, but one of the women who worked there was very rude to us when she asked... More

I went to this place when was traveling to McLean VA. There are not many 100% vegetarian restaurants in The area. I remembered going to this place in few years ago and visited it again. Same yummy taste and chef was very friendly that he made Jain Chhole Bhatura that was mouth watering. This is jain friendly place.

After checking restaurant timings and spending precious time driving over to this restaurant one Sunday afternoon, we found it was locked up with no explanation as to why! So much for professionalism or concern for the customer :(

Had heard wonderful things and we were excited to try this little spot. Headed over for the lunch buffet and there was a line out the door. Waited for 30 minutes without advancing. Many people just shoved by us and pushed to the front. Restaurant personnel doesn't take names and people just fight for tables. Physically shoved by several men.... More

Was here for Lunch and thoroughly enjoyed the pure veg spread of Indian food. The chat, salads and veg fritters were good as starters. The inclusion of Idly, Vadai and Dosai for the lunch spread was a great choice.. Lemon rice, Sambar, Rasam, Beans poriyal among other dishes made me feel like eating at home at Chennai. The soothing Lord... More
