OK restaurant. Not a great place for dinner. Bit on the higher end for they have to offer. They don't know how to make rice. Avoiding this restaurant.

I was not only impressed with the variety on the buffet but the freshness and flavour of the dishes. If you need gluten free or vegetarian you will be as happy as we were. The price is about $13 for lunch buffet while the Friday and Saturday buffet is more extensive for $18. Also, there are delicious canned soups made... More

Went for the weekend buffet. The staff were really polite and friendly. The dosa was good. Other than that, a lot of the food could have been better compared to some of the other Indian restaurants in KW. Good selection for the buffet, at least.

I was told that menu didn't say Ocean Perch, which it did. They maybe been serving catfish basa for so long they forgot that menu stipulated ocean perch. I was asked... More

I went to this restaurant with my family. We ordered couple of dosas. There was bit of late, but I liked the food with spiciness of Indian flavors. The best thing was that they provided lots of papadum with shahi chutney while we were waiting.

We have so many good Indian restaurants in Waterloo Region, but this one is mediocre. The prices are a bit high for what you get. The buffet lunch is so-so.

We usually go here for the buffet on Friday or Saturday. While not an extensive selection, all of the items are delicious. The server also brings additional Indian breads. The chai (included in the price) is the best I have ever tasted. We also are very impressed with the dishes we ordered from the menu. Also, the staff are all... More

Overall the food was very good and they delivered to south Kitchener, so that was a big plus for Christmas day. We ordered beef vindaloo, chicken tikka masala, shahi paneer, sambar and mulligatawny soups, and the classic appetizer. All food was good, and thanks for being open on xmas day! P.S sorry for not tipping, I had asked the driver... More

we ordered a few things off their menu and found that they make decent butter chicken. We were a little disappointed when we were told they didn't make their own house-made naan bread but they were still able to offer garlic naan. Was ok. we are also very use to to accompanying our indian dishes with saffron rice which they... More

Today, Friday, there were about 5 or 6 main item buffet items available along with rice, soup, naan, Indian pickles, and Indian condiments and appetizers. I enjoy eating here because along with regular offerings we are used to, they also feature many Indian beverages, including Indian coffee and Indian dessert and Mango ice cream. This restaurant has a sister restaurant... More
