The lunch buffet on Friday was very good, even 45 minutes before the buffet closed. In addition to salad and vegetarian (beans, saag paneer) dishes, there was chicken and fish plus two or three kinds of dessert. They has free chai tea. The mango lassi can be ordered for an extra charge and a little less sweet than what I... More

Living in the area, my boyfriend and I have tried most of the popular Indian restaurants. Lumbini is by far our favorite! It is the one we continually go back to! We typically get take out and its always delicious and piping hot. Our fav is the chicken tikka masala.

Went for the lunch buffet and was not disappointed! Super yummy. The tikka marsala was delicious as was the veggie curry. Oh and their chia tea is included in the buffet and it is YUM!

My memory may be faulty, but I remembered this restaurant as being better when I ate there a few years ago. I was eager to take my spouse along this time to sample the Nepalese specialties, but almost all the items were standard Indian fare. The other issue was that we arrived on purpose an hour before the buffet was... More

The vegetable, chicken and goat selections were all good, but the seafood was not. Dishes were on the sweet side. The chai was a pleasant addition to a satisfying buffet.

I think we arrived towards the end of the lunch buffet after 1300. Very reasonably priced and friendly. Buffet choices were varied - but just not hot enough in heat. We will try it again for dinner and order from the menu a little spicier food.

Food received on time & piping hot! The daal was amazing- very rich & flavorful! Also had very good garlic naan & a mango lassi. Can't speak for the restaurant setting, but the food was top notch!
