This restaurant has been around long time and you can tell (in a good way). The staff is polished and professional. Their lunch buffet is without a doubt the best. A very large selection. Meat and veggie items are available so whichever way you lean there are many choices for you I advise to get there early on the weekends... More

First time to Kanishka and it won't be our last. Excellent food, service was not amazing. However we were a large group dining on an extremely busy Saturday night. So many good dishes, too many to list!

We are always amazed at how consistently good the food at Kanishka is. We have come here several times and sampled across the menu (a la carte, we have yet to try the buffet) which in itself is quite extensive and have yet to be disappointed. The service is very hospitable and attentive.

Remarkable food! My wife and I are seasoned world travelers and have a particular fondness for Indian food -- which we've eaten all over the world. Candidly, Kanishka serves some of the finest Indian dishes we've enjoyed in this country. The extensive menu covers the cuisine from all across India. The nan bread is made fresh by hand in their...

We visit here as a family at least twice a month. Food is consistently great and the service matches. We love Kanishka - can't get enough of their Paneer tikka!!!! Delicious!

This is the place to go to if you are in the mood for an all you can eat Indian buffet. The food is delicious, freshly made, and very frequently refilled. The variety here is enormous - especially on the weekend buffet - 6 different appetizers, 6 vegetarian curries, 5 non-vegetarian options, and 5 dessert options. The A La carte... More

I have been to Kanishka a couple of times and found the food to be average. They add a lot of color to food and use same gravy for multiple dishes. Their garlic nan are good. You can visit this restaurant if you don't have any other option.

It has been a few years from our last visit and we where so happy that Kanishka had not changed. Kanishka has had to move from their other location, and that is good as the new restraint I think is better for them. Today our friends had a wounderful time as so did I. Service and food could not have... More

This is one of my favorite eat out whenever I visit Redmond. There buffet assortment is very complete. Nothing disappointments you. If you are going in a large group reservation is recommended.
