    NON INDIANS UNWELCOME When I went for a modest additional serving, the head server(female) told me I was 'taking too much food' She then made a comment about my being Asian.Racist, and subpar service

    Good buffet, one of the earlier Indian Restaurants. I do miss their earlier sign and the huge photo of the owner posing with Mike Dukakis.

    probably your best bet for indian food in central, but definitely go for takeout. the service is horrendous, waiters are rude, once argued with my wife abt whether the papad was under cooked.

    I thought the tikka masala (after 1pm, no less) was good, but the service was lacking. Waited a long time for water refills, check, etc. Food was just fine, not the best, but not bad either.

    Did I really ask for the check then wait 17 minutes before he asked me if we got it yet? Then another 6 minutes until I actually recieved it? Never again!

    Buffet overload. Save room for the rice pudding.
