Really great lunch buffet! Came here for a colleague's birthday meal with 4 other coworkers and enjoyed it a lot. Great selection for vegetarians as well as non-vegetarians. Don't believe they do anything for birthdays though, since I noted we had a birthday in our party. Overall delicious food and wonderful ambiance.

Calling the food super bad would be an understatement. The chef seemingly has no idea about preparing dishes from Indian cuisine. There was absolutely no character in the food. I ordered 2 vegetarian curries and they not only tasted bland but had no character, no real taste in it.
The staff does not know if the restaurant has any special curries - no recommendations from the staff when asked.
Long story short - do not go, do not waste your time and money at this place.

I was looking forward to visiting this restaurant in its new guise. The manager was most welcoming and attentive, and sat us in a quiet booth. That was the good part. The wait staff was impatient to take our order. Our friends wanted to order separately and both selected a tandoori chicken dish, which the waiter assumed was an appetizer for all of us, so brought that ahead of my husband's and my dinner choice, so we got to watch them eat before our meal arrived. I ordered the goat curry, which was in a lovely very spicy thick sauce, but there was no meat! It was a collection of oddly shaped bones and bone shards in sauce. DO NOT ORDER THIS if you actually do want to eat some meat. The chicken tikka marsala was pretty good.

All in all, the waiters need to understand that not all the locals realize a tandoori dish is an appetizer, that not all diners want to share their food (sadly) and that maybe they should ask.

The chef needs to find the missing goat.

We ordered a lot of chaat items and everything was great. We especially enjoyed Avacado Sev Puri, Bombay Slider and Amritsari Paneer Tikka.

The staff was attentive and friendly, even though we just went for the lunch buffet. Buffet included free drinks, which was a nice bonus. Food was good, much higher quality than the average Indian buffet.
