Menu is extensive and we have been pleased with each choice we ordered. The Chicken Masala (not the way they spell it) is delicious and I tried the Cashew Chicken (think it was Korma) Sat and it was great also....fun watching what the tables nearby are being served especially if it is one of the sizzling meals!

After driving by for years I finally stopped in for the buffet on Saturday afternoon. The restaurant was full with a birthday party going on in the back so we sat in the front. The buffet provided a nice selection and for the price of $11 person you can not go wrong. I would not consider the food to be... More

Solid Indian food and great service. Ask and they try to accommodate any needs you may have. Reasonably priced especially for the portions you receive. Stop in its worth it!!

Had lunch this past Saturday. The buffet had a nice variety of Indian dishes. The tomato soup was fantastic. We sat in the back dining room overlooking the river. I would definitely go back.

I have always given this place great reviews, but the last two times I ordered take-out from here, I had problems. The first time, the chicken tikka was burned - black - could barely eat it. I wrote a letter, but it was apparently ignored. I gave them another chance. This time, the lamb vindaloo dish we ordered had THREE... More

Its gone off in here. The staff and service used to be so good. I think it is under new management. Staff are miserable but food remains very good. They always question me when I say spicy 8/10. I know my Indian food and what I like to eat. I ordered recently and they brought the wrong dish , no... More

Our son choose this restaurant for his birthday dinner. We are not familiar with Indian food at all. Really didn't know what to expect. Very relieved! What a fantastic dinner. We ordered the sampler platter appetizer to start. Loved it! My husband and our other son each ordered one of the lamb dinners. So flavorful and melt in your mouth... More

It never fails. I try something different every time we go and I'm never disappointed. I know very little of Indian cuisine, so I take a stab at something new and BAM... a flavor explosion with every bite. I love going on the weekends for the buffet, so many new and exciting taste sensations. I think it's a good sign... More

Food is delicious and service was good. I could have given excellent rating but we ordered Paneer Bhurjee and it came with gravy. It seems it was shred paneer in paneer tikka masala gravy. The taste of dish was awesome but PLEASE that is not called paneer bhurji. Dal makhani and paneer chilli were very delicious.

Thank VishTravel
