Indian | Princeton, New Jersey - Central

I first dined here in 1991 and thought they had one of the best buffets. I think my last time here was 2005 and and then I pretty well forgot about them with so many other Indian restaurants opening in the Princeton area (many couldn't last). I was glad to see them on Opentable and thought to re-discover them under the different owners. My server who waited on me was familiar to me over the span of 25 years and gave me the story. By the way, I thought the food now is even better. More
