I moved to the Wallingford area about six months ago and I was excited to have an Indian restaurant within walking distance.
I'm used to cold impersonal service; which I can handle. However, after once a week visits for the first four months, I never saw a glimmer of recognition or memory of my ordering habits from the food servers. I have to prompt them for every step of the way and pry them away from the bar television or talking to each other. I have to call them over to take my drink order which is always painfuly slow. Then after I'm obviously done for several minutes, I always have to call them over to bring my check. Zero observation, intuition, or communication from these people.
I am not a difficult person to please and it takes a lot for me to rant like this. I used to be in the service industry, so I cut a lot of slack because I know what it can be like and I habitually overtip for the same reason.
I just went there after two months of not going, but I was craving Indian and had to go. Nothing has changed.
The food is good. Not great... but good. The variety at the buffet is decent. The owner is pleasant and personable and they have a brunch on weekends.
