Very good Indian cuisine menu, but the buffet is the best. Locals love it. At the Williamsburg location, don't be surprised to see Colonial Williamsburg, costumed interpreters enjoying a buffet lunch. This restaurant has venues in Williamsburg, Newport News, Hampton and Norfolk

We are from the UK and this is just like an Indian restaurant at home. The lunch buffet offered a very good choice of food and the only thing missing was popadoms- still, you can't have everything. Would certainly go back to try the evening...More

We eat here frequently. The Lunch Buffet is very popular with locals - you'll see William & Mary students and professors rubbing elbows with costumed Colonial interpreters. The draw? A good, tasty variety of dishes, nicely spiced and reasonably priced. Half the buffet items are...More

Lunch is fantastic and worth every penny for the buffet. We are regulars here. I take groups as large as 30 for lunch for them to experience the world renown Nawab cooking, the tribe known for cooking for mogul rulers! And they live up to...More
