This has always been the best lunch buffet for Indian food. I've been coming here for 10 years and enjoy it every time. Such good home cooked food that isn't too spicy for my American palate. The chai is excellent, also. I enjoy the fresh...More

We were passing through Iowa City and were thrilled to find a nice, quiet, out-of-the-way Indian spot for dinner. Service was very good. "Mild" option is geared toward midwesterners (i.e. no spice)... the waitress tipped us to this so we ordered appropriately. Very good menu...More

We will be back! Great little gem! Very small simple decor. A little bit worn. But so very relaxing and the food as great as you can find anywhere! They seem to have a good carry out business going as well.

The Malai Kofta is the best I've tasted in the midwest. Totally Delicious ! They have it on the buffet on Fridays and I think Wednesdays also.

Went there and wanted the buffet - but it was almost empty even though there were a lot of people "waiting" for more food to be put out - not a lot of selection - wasn't worth what we paid for - staff wasn't too...More
