This place blows me away every time we go there. They have the standards, but also have many regional dishes. Sunday brunch is exceptionally well done. Food is amazing. Service is swift and attentive.

Albany has some very good Indian food but karavalli is excellent. Southern Indian treats like purri and masala dosi are great. Saturday buffet was very busy and I understand why. Will definitely go when we are here from rochester.
