“Delicious Food, Wonderful Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

The food was great and the service was even better! My daughter is a connoisseur of Indian food so we figured we should try some while in Philadelphia. This was within walking distance of our hotel (even in the rain) so we decided to check it out. For the first couple of moments I was not sure how the service was going to be as both servers were helping a table that arrived after us but they seemed to realize that we needed service as well and then everything was spectacular.

Make sure you check out the art work on the walls--- the pendulum was a huge surprise!

Also, our server gave the best of recommendations which is always a positive! (I just wish I could remember his name!)

“Solid meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

The lunch buffet at $12.95 per person is well stocked with a variety of cold and hot dishes as well as chutneys, soups, salads, and desserts. You could not want for the assortment. Some of the food (aloo gobi, vegetable korma) was very soggy and cold others are delightfully flavorful and fresh (butter chicken, saag paneer) tasting. The service is neither bad nor extraordinary. You have to order your naan--the good part is it is fresh and hot when it comes out; the bad is if you don't ask for it, they don't remember to give it to you. It is also very dark in there so don't expect to read anything or really see the full effect of what is on your plate. All in all, it's a nice experience but won't have you saying "WOW".
