This an Indian buffet place that really up the quality factor. The night we stopped in the there were four or five hots entrees, of which the masala chicken was the star. The curry was also very good, much for complex than usually served on a buffet. An unexpected pleasure was the vegetable slaw, long thin pieces of cabbage, peppers,... More

It was our first time at this restaurant as we were out to celebrate my son's birthday. As we sat for a bit waiting for the waitress to show she asked if we want to look at a drink menu so we said yes, after the menus were brought and after half an hour as we almost finished eating and... More

Our friends in Edmonton told us to make sure we stopped at Narayannis for a dining experience never to be forgotten. We went for dinner this past Wednesday and our friends were absolutely correct. The food was amazing (we have eaten at several Indian restaurants over the decades), the service warm and hospitable, and the atmosphere was inviting and well... More

first time there. A special event buffet for $25.00 was worth every penny! Delicious home cooked food, chicken, lamb, fish, salads, appetizers and deserts. Normal Sunday buffet is smaller, no apps or desert I believe and $20. Definetly worth a try, we felt full but not over the top like some other more rich (creamy) indian food can make you... More

Probably the worst Indian restraunt I have ever been to! I have no idea why it has a good rating, if service and the taste of food is not your concern you may visit this place! *A total rip off for the money! *No appetizers at all! All you have is a paapad as an appetizer. *No roti too! Seriously,... More

This East Indian buffet off Whyte Ave. is still fairly popular, in spite of some obvious cost-cutting measures. Weekends have featured lamb in the past, but this Friday it's two kinds of chicken. Salads, appetizers and desserts are rather limited. Everything is quite spicy - a bit too much for me. I probably wont return.

Each time I visit Narayanni's, an Indian / South African taste experience, I am excited about the choices I have and the tastes I am about to enjoy. The food is awesome and the service great. If you like to treat your tastebuds once in a while visit for dinner. I highly recommend Narayanni's and can assure you, this will... More

Have been many times before and was a "go-to" restaurant - had interesting curry that was different from usual as was based on South African food and style. Also, was buffet only and was good value offering interesting choices. However, food has become less interesting, and much clearer was the extremely poor service. This is a family-run restaurant, but the... More
