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.

It's a nice place to eat with good atmosphere and decent Indian food. The food was tasty, and some of the food was very spicy, so be warned! The serving size was large, and includes rice and free papadum when you sit down. Service was...More

Came here for dinner as it is just down from where I was staying. Had an appetizer and goat curry. The curry tasted well but it was just too salty for me. If they added a little more curry, it would have been better.
