This was our first time eating here and initially the place looked ok not great but nice enough. The food looked very nice and there was a good selection. We tried a variety of dishes and when we got back to the table we established quickly that the food was all luke warm to say the least it had been placed on top of cling film and the tray beneath it seemed to have water in it I suppose to cause steam to keep it warm! It did not work very well. The food itself was flavorful albeit not very warm. The final straw that totally ruined the meal was when I discovered a long black hair in my food!! I called the manager over who initially stated he did not see a hair so I put it on a fork and showed it to him again but all he kept saying was I do not know how that happened as they wear hair nets, I assured him it was not mine as I have a bald head and my wife has blonde hair!!! He apologized again and only charged us for one lunch but I will not be returning.

Today was our 2nd time visiting this restaurant. Our 1st time ever eating Indian food was also here at the suggestion of our oldest daughter a couple months ago, where we ordered off the menu. Today, we ate from the buffet. Food was wonderful both times. As the name advertises, all dishes were very flavorful. The owner is always very nice; and, patient as he accommodates all my questions. :) My husband, who is a meat and potatoes man from Texas, enjoys the food and commented on several dishes. Our youngest, who can be a picky eater, loves the butter chicken. I highly recommend this restaurant. If you visit, you must try the butter chicken and cashew chicken (can't remember the Indian name for the latter).

Very nice food... Vegetable Uthappam and Dosa with Sambar are very close to best... Chicken Biriyani is tasty, less food color than other restaurants around.. Vinoth is really good in serving...

First of all 'To Go' is very expensive. Then they tell you it is by weight, $6.99/lb; you have to put the rice along with the other food (to make up the weight), and when comes to weigh the food that you have put in the container, the price goes up $7.99/lb since the guy sorry, it was a mistake and he just confirmed it so we will charge you $7.99/lb. What rubbish!!
