Food was very good. I had chicken butter curry and loved it. Service was very attentive, but we felt a little rushed. Prices were decent. Location and outdoor seating was very nice as well. Would return.

We went in for lunch and had the buffet. The food was either lukewarm or cold. I informed the servers that the elements needed to be turned up. The samosas were ice cold, so they brought some new ones. We didn't bother eating them as...More

We were SO looking forward to visiting the restaurant because of the good reviews. However, when we arrived Sunday 2:15pm for a late buffet lunch, we were terribly disappointed. The buffet selection was poor and all dried up. Just two curries (one being a 'mince'...More

I really like Indian food and unfortunately, live in a city where I don’t have access to an Indian restaurant. There are several options in San Diego’s Gas Lamp District and none had glowing reviews one way or the other. I was a little skeptical...More
