We were really hoping for some good Indian food, and were disappointed. The service was very bad, and there were not many vegetarian options. We took lunch buffet, the staff refused to re-fill the buffet saying it was 2:30. (We came in at 2:20, and they did not tell us they would not re-fill at 2:30!) We later ordered vegetable... More

Very nice food, rich in taste. I had the veggie tikka masala. Staff were a bit slow sometimes but very friendly. We enjoyed our dinner. I like a bit of spice so went for medium heat. Found it very mild so would up the spice next time. Nice rice and naan.

We used a restaurant.com coupon here. The food was a little higher priced than I typically would choose but with the discount it was reasonable. Three of us ordered different dishes and shared them family style all of the dishes were tasty and distinct in flavor. They did, however, all look very similar and we lost track of which was...

The lunch buffet is quite good value and tasty. The food is reportedly halal, which made my muslim friends happy. Unfortunately, they are bad at dealing with allergies. My friend who is allergic to onions tried to order a dish without onions, but that was not possible to order. Any good restaurant should be able to make a dish without... More
