Buffet choices are expanded. You feel very hungry when you see all the buffet choices laid out. In addition, there is a cook who will prepare puffed small bread items, in which he will fill food and spices you choose. Puffed small bread (approx 2 inches diameter) is cracked open at top and then filled with the customer's selection. Over... More

One of the few places that actually carry kulfi. Taste was good and price was reasonable. Mithai was fresh as well.

We went there two days back with our friend who patronizes this restaurant on his recommendation for lunch buffet. Ambience is very very good for family and friends. Staff is quite friendly. As we are vegetarian, We cannot comment on non- veg dishes but since veg dishes taste good, we presume non-veg dishes should be yummy.

We went for dinner buffet and there was a wide variety. Food tasted very good and authentic. Ambiance was fantastic and they were kid friendly. One possible improvement is inclusion of chai in the buffet. Highly recommended.

This is one of the most authentic Indian restaurants. Nice variety of food for buffets and wide selection to choose from. Nice ambiance as well for family and friends. A little bit on the costlier side though.

I have been loyal customer to this restaurant for the past 8 years. Love the buffet spread Friday through Sunday. The restaurant owners are an elderly Indian couple who make sure customers get best food and service. They are very open to suggestions on menu, quality and service. The buffet includes salads, street food favorites, appetizers, 4-5 vegetarian entrées and... More

Good range of food in the buffet so everyone could find plenty to eat. The restaurant wasn't even busy but we still had to wait for drinks - beer and chai - service and plate removal!
