Met a friend for a late lunch. Apparently we were sitting in a high demand table. We were there less than hour and were asked three times if we were done. When I ordered a cup of tea after our meal I was told "no - no tea". Someone wanted our table and they would be there at 3pm. It... More

The samosas and dosas are a must try! The food is authentic and delicious. Service is prompt and attentive. They filled up our water as needed and offered more chai tea (my preferred... More

As in the name, It is a 'masala' of different Indian food types. More south Indian in flavor and aroma. Buffet spread is good, lot of vegetarian options. My meat eating friends are quite satisfied with Chicken Kebab. The service could be really slow for a-la-carte, as the number of staff waiting is quite low for a packed restaurant. Go... More

If you like Indian food this is the place to go! I went here during the Ann Arbor Art Fair. They were very accommodating for a single guest and saw many tables with large groups seated. There were many Indian families eating here and that is always a good sign for me when guests are of the ethnicity of the... More

I just realized that I haven't updated my Reviews on this place since 2012. I have been here at least a half a dozen times since then. Every time a hit out of the park. Very few afternoon buffet restaurants can live up to that comment. The restaurant is so much more than an afternoon buffet though. Food - There... More

This is a typical Tamilnadu / south Indian restaurant. I had their dinner thali and it was fantastic. Masala Dosa and Vada were very good but idli was just OK. Other dishes were good and I couldn't finish the entire Thali as it was too much for me. Only problem here is to find a parking, i had to circle... More
