I had visited Shanti a year back and was not happy with the taste of food and even the service. The experience today was superlative. Food was tasty and service was great. Keep it up.

The lunch buffet is very tasty and varied. Enjoyed several meals here at a very moderate price. The service is fine and quiet. No buzz words.

So I guess I should have listened to most reviewers on the buffet about staying away from this place. The buffet would have been worth $13 if the quality of the food was good. I got there at 1.45pm and was super excited to see...More

As someone who has lurked on TripAdvisor for many years, but never got round to submitting my own reviews, it was going to take something exceptionally good or exceptionally bad before I finally got around to writing one. Well that moment has arrived; I've just...More
