We ate only vegetarian dishes. Daal makhani was good. Kheer and gulabjamun were good too. But pakoras were very oily.

We really enjoyed our meal here - we ate very late as we'd only just arrived in the city but the food tasted as fresh as it would have at the start of the evening. Popular with locals too.

It states fine dining and they hand you the plates to put them in front of you. The sodas are flat and with no ice.

There is a lot of variety on the buffet and several kinds of bread. Neither my memory nor my knowledge of Indian food serves to be more specific.
