We have been here a few times and liked it. Sometimes the food has been great and sometimes mediocre. Not a huge variety for fussy kids. Not too pricey and always able to get a table . Service can be a bit hit and miss.

Food at buffet was terrible. Used to come here regularly, but won't be back. There are other far superior restaurants nearby, namely the Law thorn which is superb.

Ate at the Gulab again last night with family. Wide selection of dishes on the buffet, great ambiance and attentive staff. Very reasonably priced. This is the fifth time we have eaten there - looking forward to the sixth!

We arrived and discovered that we were the only customers in. The restaurant has only recently opened for dinners after a period of time offering lunches only, so I imagine word hasn't spread yet. Surroundings were very nice and a massive improvement from when it...More
