Do not miss this restaurant. A midday buffet is reasonably priced and always includes tandoori chicken and at least one other main dish, both white and saffron rice, veggies, and delicious rice pudding. Great for dinner and for take out. Great staff.

NIce restaurant. Love the food and the servers are all very nice. Tables could be just a bit farther apart, but overall the ambiance is A+. Love the biryani, the naan (try the cheese/greens naan), and the desserts. A pleasant surprise!!!
