  • The poutine is fantastic
  • Best Indian Curry Buffet in town.
  • Sit close to the fire in winter, on the leather couches and closer to the middle of the room under the fans in summer.
  • Love the Woodford Bourbon Manhattans
  • The buffet was too expensive for the ordinary food. I didn't think much of it... wouldn't return and don't recommend.
  • Try the mango smooth. Thank me later
  • Pick up Victoria Bench by Bench at Munro's on Government St. and explore some unique places around Victoria.
  • Steve obviously is a bitter old curmudgeon...the food was fantastic and the service is stellar....what more could you expect and all for under $40.00?
  • Ask for the couches on the left side. Not so crowded like the Afternoon Tee. If you just want to relax with a cup of tea and reading the newspaper, this is the place to go in the Empress.
  • Best Fish & Chips in the city! Also, the grilled cheese sandwich is to die for!
  • Love the atmosphere. Especially on nights when they have the jazz. Pricey, but worth every penny. See you there.
  • The Indian Curry buffet is the best in town.
  • The Collins 44 is refreshing. And Wade is the best!
  • Curry buffet was excellent. Very authentic and lots of flavour. No need to skip.
  • The warm lamb sandwich is really very good. Mild lamb, delicious tomato jam, and a hint of Branston pickle.
  • Love to come for a martini and curry buffet lunch every time I'm in Victoria. It is delish!
  • They no longer serve the poutine. :/
  • The gimlets are amazing!
  • The curried roasted cashews are Devine!
  • It's a Bengal affair, once a month; are you ready to hunt?
