    Was craving an Indian buffet for lunch and was impressed by the internet reviews I read about this Castro Street restaurant. The reviews were generally aligned with our lunch time experience. The restaurant has an extensive hot buffet line. We made an Open Table reservation based on reviewers comments that the place gets packed at noon time. However, we had a choice of tables on the Monday noon time period we dined here. On the food level, the roti bread. neither was heavy in whole grain nor buckwheat and tasted sweet. The only tea was an Indian hot variety with milk. My colleague had a mango lassi that he liked it a lot :) The buffet offering had too much chicken and only a goat meat offering and few vegetable offers.

    In most Indian restaurants some of the stuff will be good and the rest will be ok or bad. Here everything was really good. Nice variety and great taste - the bread is wonderful. Good service too.

    We made reservations for 10:30 pm. When we got there they told us that the kitchen was already closed Nevertherless the owner and staff accomoidated us and served us one of the best Punjabi meals we have had anywhere in this country. To make things even better they played, just for us, awesome Punjabi Bhangra Music. Opentable might have had a gliotch in the reservations, Park Bulluchi definitely did not. My sister is visiting this week with her family...this is the place I'm taking them for a great meal.

    Not a relaxing atmosphere with workers hovering around talking and a bit chaotic who should take your order and who to ask for drinks, and the server from the kitchen kept leaving our entrees at the other end of the table instead of in front of us. Otherwise, food was very tasty, although lamb was a bit chewy. Worth it if you get restaurant.com or groupon certificate.

    Went there on weekday night and was surprised to find it almost full. Food was ok ok, nothing great, service was good. Food came out in good time, and servers were courteous. But again, the food was not anywhere close to standard of good places in bay area.

    In the above question you asked me to choose how I would specifically recommend this restaurant, this is applicable only if I remotely was gonna recommend your place.I would never recommend this place to any of my friends. 1.)They need to learn how to treat their customers. 2.)The wait times for the table (even after making a reservation) is very high, the delay in serving the food is even higher. 3.)The taste of their food is no where close to being called fresh.

    I also like the service, except that it is very slow. Ordered an extra dish, but never made it to table. Friendly staff. Food was good and I would recommend this place...

    Overall good food, but the Suji Halwa seemed stale -- the sugar content was very less.
