    For the must haves: naan,uttapan,Tikka and lemon rice. Also go for a fruity martini to pair with the fun flavors you about to experience. The waiter will bring a potatoes pancake try it !

    Great food. Gobi app was very good. Chicken tikka, Malai kofta both very good. Lychee martini not so good. Coconut rice is nice.

    Great service, pricey but delishious drinks. Don't get fooled by the modest entrance, this is a casual chick atmosphere with delishious buffet/rodízio style. Have a mango martini as well!

    Simply incredible. The weekend lunch buffet is delectable with a varied fare of creative dishes. Ask Raj, super friendly server with a ready smile, for a portion of kitchen ready tandoori chicken!

    Very delicious food! I recommend the veggie samosas, Aloo Gobi (cauliflower & potato) , saag paneer, and Shetty chicken coconut curry. Good bottled beers too.

    One of the best, most authentic North Indian places in the city outside of Jackson Heights. The weekend buffet is always fresh and hot and an amazing deal.

    Best (and most reasonably priced) Indian brunch in NYC. Everything is good. Go at noon when they open to avoid a wait.

    The okra appetizer was the best I've had in my life and I'm from the south! I wanted to cancel my entree and order more! Delicious meal and wonderful service.

    By a wide margin the best Indian lunch buffet I have ever encountered. Great taste, huge selection, same price as much less tasty options.
