    Service is slow , ask for the waiter 3 times and don't get any response . It is not about how busy it is but how organized were they .
  • Aaron W.
    Delicious buffet compared to all the rest out there. Great prepped meals too - especially the vegetarian options!

    The lunch buffet is where it’s at. Come hungry—very hungry—because it’s a $20 all-you-can-eat deal ($27 weekends) with favorites like butter chicken and saag paneer. Read more

    Food is great, service is beyond terrible. Most staff there have a serious attitude problem and can be downright rude.

    If you want to go to a nice restaurant and you feel like Indian food try Amber India. Pop into the bar area where you can order drinks and food without a reservation or much of a wait.

    Naan is soft and melts in the mouth. Butter chicken deserves the rave reviews. Rogan josh gravy had a balanced taste, not too spicy and not too meaty but the lamb pieces were a tad too big.
