Not worth for money you pay. Over priced for the number of varieties that are served at buffet. It kind of Ok, but not worth waiting and all the hassle to reach on time.

Food is good for its price. But we couldn't try many dishes for the price and we cannot finish them too. Half plate in side entrees would be a better choice to try many dishes with same price of few dishes. It's just one or two dish that makes someone to come back. So it's important to taste the right dish.

The food tastes really good and tge service is fine. The only negative thing is it the buffet service is not worth for begetarians. They must include some more attractive food options for vegetarians.

Kumar's mess is a place for people with love for food. Its not just the dishes they offer, but focus towards delivering to its customers. A simple thought of offering dishes to the table rather than buffet style, highlights the real gratitude offered to its consumers.

This was my first time I experienced such a poor service at Kumar's. Not sure if it was because the waiters were new and under training.

We were served rice and had to wait atleast 5-6 mins before curry was served. And this happened thrice on the same lunch!!! On the third occasion, we were served rice and the waiter went back to get curries. But after 3-4 mins, he came back with the plate of appalams; and then he had to go back again to get the curries. This time, my patience was tested and I had to shout at him. I do understand that Sunday afternoons are terribly busy at Kumar's, but this kind of service was totally unacceptable!

I would suggest that Kumar's have the adequate no. of staff and the experienced ones, atleast on the days which are extremely busy so as to cater for the demand and pressure.

Thank you.

Was a great experience. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. We had a friends birthday, so we had a cake to cut and they set it up and brought it to the table with candles, plates and napkins. The food was excellent too, enjoyed the various curies. I wish there was more vegetable sides.

The Manager was standing and talking loudly to his friend who was a guest in the next table to us. He was preferential to his friend by getting his food first even though we ordered long before him. I am totally disappointed. The only saving grace is the food quality which was good.

This place has good south Indian style cooked food. Some dishes are spicy, but very good. The quality is good, the cooking is consistent. It is BYOB at this time. The staff is very helpful and will try and accommodate your specific needs.
When busy, like on the weekends, the staff gets a little overwhelmed. But, this will get better as time goes.
We will definitely visit this place again. Will also want to try their weekend brunch. Understand it is special.

Unless they want to pay more for what they get.
Do take me in a wrong way, food tastes good but I felt that it's overpriced. You guys should add atleast 2 Non- Vegetarian and 2 Vegetarian staters in your buffet and you don't have any deserts apart from one sweet.

If you make these changes that will help you in long run and will have repeat customers.

This is an interesting concept for the non indian presenting a traditional south Indian restaurant with traditional vegetarian cuisine. I wouldn't say the flavors are outstanding or that the service is remarkable, but in defense of the college students they hire, its reasonable. The concept I speak of is the weekends only unlimited food on a banana leaf menu or a weekdays reduced menu served on a banana leaf lunch. Dinner gets you a standard menu where you will find north indian 'creamy' dishes as well. I suggested this place to my tourist cousins from out of state but feel it unnecessary to go otherwise. The location is much to be desired and the food can be found in the umpteen south Indian restaurants popping up everywhere in North Dallas. There needs to be a control on the messy kids running everywhere and almost being run over by adults due to the dark and narrow aisles. I guess the plan is to stuff as many people in hot, dark and cramped quarters. I must also mention that the juice bar takes up valuable real estate and is wasted space in my opinion. The concept of making reservations is actually a good idea for this type of restaurant space.

Madras Pavilion is much better for the value of money. Don't see paying any reason for paying $12 for a langar type food.

Great Food... But too Pricey..

Food taste is very much closer to what we eat back home in South India... But it is a little too pricier for both adults and kids. Especially for kids.
