“Surprisingly Good Indian Food in Northfield”
Reviewed 30 March 2013

Nice restaurant down on Division street at the base of Carleton College. If you eat Indian food a lot, then you won't be disappointed as all the usual fare is there whether it's a masala, pakora, biryani or just Tandoori chicken. And with the exception of the lamb korma (which was dry), it was all quite good! I would definitely eat here again.

“All was very good! And order to share - portions are plentiful”
Reviewed 19 February 2013

Initial and follow-up service wasn't stellar, but hey, it's a college town.

Seated in a semi-private alcove-feeling table - nice seclusion. All of the food was done well, with flavors that are more pure/ more concentrated than other indian restaurants. (Can't say how authentic or true to form they as I've not visited the sub-continent.) Careful when you order the Taj Mahal beer - it comes in 22 oz bottles, but they don't state that on the menu. Could definitely go there again.

“Food is great”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

We love the buffet here. Always tasty. We don't go very often, and won't because one of the partners is a snake in the grass. But the people that run it and cook are great.

“Best Indian Buffet in Minnesota?”
Reviewed 10 December 2012

Every dish was a winner. The Nan was soft. The papadams were crispy. The rice was fragrant. The curries were delicious and various. The pickles and sauces are home-made. Go for the luncheon buffet (about $10 each) Bring friends. Nestled into the belly of the Archer House, a delightful old fashioned hotel. Leave full and happy. Bow to the Buddha on your way out.

“Authentic Indian”
Reviewed 18 November 2012

A little too hot for me, but all of my adult children rave about their food. There is enough variety, however, to find something to please every palate.
