I stopped here to eat after a meeting, before driving home. I was immediately greater and seated by one of the waiters. I had the lunch buffet. Everything was well marked and staff were on hand to answer any questions. They had four or five dishes with meat, four or five with out meat and four or five desserts. Everything... More

The buffet ($11.95 for dinner) offers ample choices. Two chicken curries, vegetarian curries such as Saag Masala and lentil dal, tandoori dishes, pakoras, and two rice preparations. Within the casual atmosphere and decor, we started with Indian beer, papadam, and complementary naan, the latter of which were not up-to-par, as were the paratha that we ordered. These two staple breads... More

We were shopping at thrift stores in South Mesa and tried their vegetarian and lamb entrees. Excellent on both!

I'm an Indian who was in dire need of some good indian food when I went to this place. We started with a portion of complimentary papri chaat which was flavourful and spicy, a good appetiser Next we ordered some dal maharani which was well cooked and just about fine in taste, along with malai kofta which was okay too....

I loved everything about this place when I first walked in the door. The clean comfortable atmosphere, friendly staff and authentic aromas. The Indian buffet did not disappoint and I was treated to a fresh taste of Indian culture. They offer a very delicious and well-prepared variety of Indian cuisine. The price is unbelievable as well. I would highly recommend... More

I drove 45 minutes to go to this highly reviewed indian restaurant, and when I arrived to find it was a buffet, I was disappointed. We sat down and the waiter offered the menu, but we decided to try the buffet because it was only 11 dollars, which is a great dinner price. I tried the chicken curry, chicken tikka... More

Kind of out of the way if you are in the central Phoenix/Scottsdale/Tempe areas, but they offer very great food and service for very little money. My expectations were low, the recommendations high and they lived up to them. Worth the drive for a good quality Indian buffet.

Our friends always want to return with us for exceptional, non-gee, non-greasy, but this time we were able to return alone. It may seem selfish, but it was a treat to savor each and every one of the many choices and limit conversation, while concentrating on flavor. Outstanding and fresh choices, including vegetarian selections, deserts, and never-ending fresh and warm... More

I took some relatives from out of town, first timers to Indian food for dinner on July 6th. They were effusive in their compliments for both the food and service. I am a regular and cannot say enough for the consistency and quality of there food. Their dishes are always hot, always fresh and the naan are fabulous. Mango lassi,... More
