The lunch buffet has many excellent vegetarian choices. From the fragrant basmati rice to the carrot and almond dessert, everything is delicious. The flavor of each dish is distinct. Tasty, yet not too spicy. The nan is good and they keep your basket filled. Sometimes the servers jump the gun and clear your table when you are still deciding on seconds. I would highly recommend this as a good afternoon lunch place.
