Not impressive with food or customer service. They treat their own Indian community with least respect.

I love coming to Jackson Diner. It is always up to par and we NEVER leave hungry. Their portions are huge and the menu has a huge selection. My favorite dishes here are the Sag Paneer, Chicken Masala, Lamb Vindaloo, and the Garlic Naan.

Great indian restaurant in "Little India." They have a lunch buffet but we ordered off the menu. The Saag Paneer was perfectly seasoned as was the Achari chicken. Garlic Naan was perfect.

A nice place for an Indian meal. The food is probably about the same as the other area restaurants, but the atmosphere is just a little nicer, with more of a restaurant feel. Decent service, and the pricing is reasonable.

If you are looking for ambiance, this is not the place for you. Destination restaurant? Probably not. But if you’re making an afternoon of it in Little India and you’re looking for a reasonably priced Indian buffet lunch, you’ve come to the right place. About that ambiance: all the charm of a cacophonous, dimly lit cafeteria populated with laminate wood... More

I had the buffet - The goat curry was excellent. The masala dosa was quiet sad, with raw onions in the filling. I enjoyed the desert too.
