It has been a long time since I have had such good Indian food! The Butter Chicken was mouth watering as well as the Chicken Tikka & Lamb Vindaloo.

Really good Indian food. Wide selection on the menu. A little pricey but we were able to get a Groupon for the place so it wasn't so bad. They serve wine so it is a good place to bring a date or family.

This place always has consistently good food. If you like Indian food, you will love this place. You can order specific plates from the menu or try the buffet. No matter what, you will not go wrong with this food.

We were there for New Years day. We were seated promptly and immediately placed our orders as we had small children with us. Three entrees were finally delivered with two very small bowls of rice for four adults and two children. We asked for more rice. It never came.

The lunch buffet is really good. I liked the food, but wish the interior of the restaurant was a little nicer.

Food selection was ok, coming from England and being a fan of curry's I thought the food was typical buffet curry, kinda of watered down and not a hot/spicey choice on offer, the staff was very good and over all I liked it there, will I return yes the cost/quality was very fair good job :)

The food was very authentic. The ambiance was wonderful as well. It did take some time but I was able to talk with the server.

Loved the naan and the lamb dishes. Be careful on the spice levels-the medium tends to be hotter than it should be. The service was super slow and there were only two tables when we arrived.
