What a spread! Beats anything that I have seen in the US. Food was delicious too. Pleasant decor, good music. This is totally worth the money! The butter chicken was authentic, all the vegetable dishes outstanding. Avoid the mango lassi, it is too sweet. But...More

Happened upon the buffet here on a Wednesday night, and felt lucky for it. It's a nice enough place with traditional decor and music playing in the background. There is plenty of room for many small tables, or a large setting for a group, as...More
