We had an outstanding experience at this restaurant. I gave my husband who is a Chef a surprise birthday party here. We ordered appetizers, 4 entrees and dessert. Everything was excellent. Everyone loved the Chicken Tikka Marsala and the Lamb Rogan Josh. The garlic naan was delicious, hot and buttery. The manager was very easy to work with and the servers were very attentive. We topped off the meal with ice cream. I highly recommend this restaurant.

My boyfriend and I were excited for the buffet, but had the dinner instead since we missed it. We were not disappointed at all! The staff was incredibly friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. The food was absolutely delicious. I had a shrimp curry and he had a chicken curry with almonds (we could hardly pronounce them while ordering and fail to remember their names now). Of course I made sure we ordered naan (Even though our order came with a big heaping of white rice), and had plain naan and garlic naan that we used to wipe the plates and bowls clean--perfect. Overall, the experience was great! We both have had Indian food before, but this is certainly on another level. This is definitely a place to try if you're willing to spend a bit more than the usual--but it's all worth it. Comparable to other "high-end" places, these prices are very reasonable.

The buffet was awesome and the curry goat was on point. Did not like the desert so much but overall my experience was great. Hope to return sometime soon.

This is our favorite Indian restaurant in the area, and we've tried many. The ambiance is excellent, despite the somewhat strip-mally nature of the surrounding stores. The service staff is incredibly friendly. It probably helped that we had our 18 month-old son with us, but they were constantly smiling at our table and coming by to say hi. Several of the staff remembered us on our second visit, a few months after the first. Again, I'm sure the adorable kid helped here, but looking around at the other tables I saw nothing but solid service and friendliness on display. Every food item we have ordered has been excellent. I'm not saying completely changed the way I see Indian food, but the food is cooked well and never disappoints. If I had to recommend one standout, it would be the biryani. It has been delicious on both visits. Even my baby ate it up!

After many visits, one of my favorite Indian restaurants, along with some in other cities. The buffet is uniformly excellent and well attended, well priced. The a la carte menu is even better, item for item. The audience for the evening menu is dynamic and includes many families from India. The food is well seasoned and complex, not a single note or compromised. The fish curries are particularly delicious and even my young children enjoy them. The service has always been good; not always perfectly organized. Very friendly. Seeing another review complain about a very young child being charged for a full buffet, I've never seen that. Yes, for a school aged child. Anyway, the manager is always helpful too. It's good enough, so that the few dishes I'm not hugely fond of, perhaps I don't understand. They tend to be the 'indo-chinese' dishes.

This is one of the regional areas best Indian cuisine restaurants. The name says it all, a hidden jewel of in Silver Spring, MD. This restaurant selection and price is considerably low compared to the portions and quality of other Indian restaurants in the DMV area. I'm not surprised it is not expensive, but the food is excellent and top notch. The buffet is incredible! I highly recommend this location for their excellent customer service and great attention to detail.

I have been here three times (sit-in) and the food and service are always great. The menu has a wide range of choices, and each time I've tried something different. The only thing I wouldn't order again was the Masala Calamari (I wanted to try something different, and although it wasn't nasty the presentation wasn't the best and the taste was just okay). The service is attentive, nothing overly friendly- just good. But I do like the food (my friends have tried the Chinese food and liked it). I usually get Lamb Saag (and it's a BIG serving unlike some reviewers have said- guess it depends on what you order). My husband got a very spicy lamb dish that he likes, and I've only had two drinks from there- Melon Ball and Mojito- both were delish (not too much alcohol but not watered down). I finally tried dessert and had the pistachio ice cream (wish I could post a pic) it was a work of art!..and tasty too. No place is perfect, but for the price, service and atmosphere it's worth it.
