I wish there was a no star option. Let's start with the fact that this place does not believe in serving ice. Add that to the seeming lack of air conditioning, I was uncomfortable and thirsty the whole time. They start you with a bottle of spring water and then it takes them 15 minutes if you ask for something else. When they bring you a different drink, DON'T expect it to be very cold or on will be disappointed. I brought my 5 year old niece with me and she obviously ate nothing from the buffet (what kid would like it if even I had to force it down??!) Despite that, the lady proceeded to charge us for 3 regular adult meals. There were maybe three dishes on the buffet that I liked a little bit. Their dessert wasnt even worth going up for. I am writing this on our way home from this place and I am so full of regret. My favorite Indian place to eat at is India Oven in Mesa and I will never cheat on them again. Their buffet is delicious, dessert is amazing, service is attentive and wonderful, and their $&^#ing drinks are ICE COLD and ALWAYS full.

I decided to try this place despite the review about no salt. I don't know what that other guy was talking about, there was salt on every table. I'm glad I came. authentic decore, and food. the Onion Rava Masala Dosai was excellent, as were the Gobi Manchurian, and Malai Kofta. I'm a white guy so Indian food is not always my first choice, but I was pleasantly surprised. it wasn't too strong for my palate. the Gobi Manchurian by the way only sounds spicy, it was quite sweet. Also I would like to point out the place was very clean, and had white table cloth without white table cloth prices. ~$10 A definite try. -Jeff Cornelius

Had been there for a lunch buffet, none of the food item tasted great. Short of salt in most of the items. My buffet contained Idly, Dosa, Vada, Pongal, Sambar, Rasam, Gulab Jamun... Paying $10+ for this is way too high, there are better restaurants out there, should improve a lot.

This place sucks big time. I have been there many time but the only reason is that it is hardly a mile away from my place. 1) Food is not fresh. It always look like it was re-heated or re-fried. 2) Service sucks...most of the time there is only one guy who servers, take the dishes, attend the guests and take the check !!!! 3) During Buffet you'll keep waiting for naan or any appetizer and they'll not bring it until you give up. Comon you know there are 2- ppl having buffet then why can't you just keep the naans ready ?? 4) One day i was not happy with service at all so i didn't leave the tip....owner forged my Credit Card receipt and added tip in to that and i got to know when i saw my statement. 5) Most important ---- Waiters don't get the TIP amount !!!!!!!! YES, That mexican waitress told me not to leave tip because owner keeps it and he doesnt give it to waiters. Really ???? 6) Owner and staff treats Indian like they are eating soon as a white guy enters all attention goes to him and suddenly you don't exist. WTF !!! They are not God for you. 7) All the good reviews are from Non-Indian because they don't even know what Indian taste is don't believe those stupids.

I have lived in the area for 10 years and decided to stop in and try the lunch buffet. I thought the food was great it would have been a perfect match in price if they dropped the cost down to $9.99 . The wait staff was nice but there wasn't much direction, when my room mate and i walked in for lunch the hostess/waitress brought us to our table gave us water and left. After about 10 minutes we figured out that you just go up and get a plate without indicating what you wanted to you order or paying for your meal. Their was one line for the the buffet the tables were clustered together causing constant jams in the flow of customers. The buffet was set up in a very inefficient way , the currys came first down the line muddled with a couple soup options then came the rice which split the curry selection in two followed by the sweets which there was no barrier defining where one started and ended , the salad was at the end with sauces followed by another small dessert selection of a donut type concoction. Suffice it to say it was at first hard to get a grip on when i took a bite of tandoori chicken with rice and the rice turned out to be a sweet carrot rice dessert. Once i figured out the lay of the land it was great , from curry goat to tandoori chicken with some Sambar soup yummy and chicken biryani delicous.... all in all a good experience i will definitely go back.

Wow..Thats a great food. After a long time, I ate the idli that tasted authentic. The masala dosa served in buffet was also awesome. The Sambar was aromatic and it increased my appetite. They served me 7 varieties of deserts..never ever in a buffet i ate in USA. Non-veg lovers may not like this place because there is no non-veg food available here. Well that is what this place is famous for ..The vegetarian food. I am from South India and I liked every dish in the buffet menu. I am a spicy food lover. I wished the biriyani tasted little spicy but that was ok. Totally I enjoyed dining food here and I will definitely come back. Service was decent and I felt there need to be little improvement in ambiance. But over all it was a decent place to dine good Vegetarian food.

Probably the only Indian restaurant in Phoenix that is 'pure vegetarian' in Indian terminology. In other words, paneer (cottage cheese), yogurt and cream are the closest you come to the non-vegetarian food chain 😜 The South Indian fare is delicious (idli, wada, dosa, saambar, rasam) and nicely complemented by some equally good North Indian fare (curries and appetizers). And yes, the food is spicy - just how most of us like it 😎

Visited this place for dinner. Ambiance was ok. Food was not good at all. Looks like chef took no interest in preparing food. It was like warmed up in a hurry from frozen dishes. One probably enjoy better by getting frozen dishes from Indian Grocery store and then fry it again at home. Ordered Bhel Puri which was almost dry. Ordered one north Indian and one South Indian dishes. Both to out disappointment. i will not be going there again.
