We visited for dinner on a locals recommendation. The service was good, but the restraunt was empty. I appeared that many people were doing take out. Food was fresh and delicious. They had a nice wine selection as well. We enjoyed our dinner experience.

Visited this restaurant for the first time since they bought from Marsala Bites. The two servers were very warm, attentive and efficient. The buffet was plentiful, looked attractive and was a culinary disappointment. Many of the dishes depended on hots rather than on rounded spicing and as a result tasted a lot alike and bland. Most of the entrees were very runny and therefore difficult to keep separate on the plate. This is not of the same quality as the previous restaurant as was testified by the fact that there were only four tables occupied in the middle of lunch hour. We would not return.

This restaurant opened several years ago. Service and food were both great. I am wondering if it changed ownership. As far as service, my last experience was odd. They had 6-7 people on the dining floor, with 4 tables. It seemed as if all the waitstaff were working every table. Service was also a bit on the slow side. As far as the food, the curries and naan were excellent. The papadums that were brought were not fresh. They were stale and chewy. i am guessing leftovers from the lunch buffet? The Basmati rice was a bit clumpy. With long grain rice, each grain should be separate and firm. It was the go to indian restaurant in town. Now i am going to have to try the new one that opened.

Lunch buffet is a very good deal here. They have a variety of appetizers and both vegetarian and non-vegetarian entries. Nan is always served hot just out of the oven. Lunch time it is mostly self service, but help is available, if needed. They have 2-3 choices of desserts - not too sweet, but just right.

Terrible, dirty, cold food, worst service ever and they ran out of ingredients. What a dump. So sad we used to go there regularly but since they have become more popular they have become the worst Indian restaurant ever!!!
