We went for the lunchtime buffet at $9.95 on a weekday. There were about 3 tables with customers all ordering buffet (so the one waiter's attention was not extended). Still we never had our water refilled only once long after a couple of requests, and glasses empty for quite a while. The buffet had salad, saag which was good, an eggplant in tomato based sauce which was good, and a lamb dish with lots of bone but still very tasty. A chicken dish also incorporated the curry used in the lamb dish. The tandoori chicken did not taste of any oven and there was no charred flavor even though the meat was charred. A lentil dish was OK, but the chicken tikka masala was amazingly bland. Naan was freshly made upon request. There was a carrot dessert and watermelon. There are less expensive (eg Chennai) buffets although $9.95 is not expensive but average; there are better tasting buffets. There is no reason to come back.

Prawn Tandoori masala, Chilli chicken and Lamb chops masala are my favorites. The service is very good and nice atmosphere. Usually I order and will be ready in half an hour to take home.

Truly amazing indian food. Very consistently good. We especially like the samosa, chicken tika, and lamb korma. All are awesome. Less oily than some of its competitors...

Like one of the other reviewers noticed, these guys are overwhelmed and are not set up to run a delivery business..and apparently they don't care. It's a shame as the food is better than the other crap up here on UES that passes for Indian..Baluchi's?, are you kidding me. Actually, I've had delivery guys from this place that were totally inept..I had one who couldn't find my building and just wandered around the UES for 45 minutes..lol btw, delivery's take 45min - an hour regardless of what they tell you. Bottom line, they do a good business, must obviously know that their food has the subtle qualities that the other Indian slop around here lacks..So, pay our prices, deal with our crappy infrastructure and like it!....lol.

Ordered from here last night. Delivery took an hour and a half. Called twice to find out what was taking so long. First time, told "He already left." Second time, told "He's not there yet? I will call him." When the delivery person finally arrived, he said "I made a mistake and left your food somewhere else and they remade it. It was a mistake." Apparently the restaurant knew what happened and didn't call or tell me when I called. I did not give the delivery person much of a tip and he continued to whine about it being a mistake, as though I should have rewarded him for showing up at all. When we finally ate the food, it was meh at best. Will not be bothering with this place again.

Food authentic, Poorie fluffy, saag paneer just the right (spicy), menu diverse enough to accomodate non-Indian fans (i.e., tandoori, kebob dishes) - service polite and consistent. A great neighborhood addition. Great value. They do not have liquor license just yet, byob for now. Two thumbs up!
