  • With the entree you get to decide if you want dal or a veg as a side. Make sure you pick or you get the kitchen's choice.
  • Sunday night 2 for $25 special is the best! Get the gobi manchurian appetizer. So delicious!
  • Best and most authentic Indian lunch buffet in Pittsburgh. And for $7.99 it's a steal! Catch it before 2:30 every day except Monday, when they are closed.
  • Try the chicken vindaloo
  • The tandoori chicken and all the different kinds of paneer are super tasty. Also love their chai :) Good option for lunch buffet during the week.
  • Best Indian in Pittsburgh? Maybe...be certain to try the Navratan Korma in the vegetarian entrees. Never had a preparation like it anywhere. Tasty!
  • The place is BYOB. So bring a bottle of vodka, then order a mango lassi. It's amazing and really smoothe
  • Cheap-ass lunch buffet with around 6 different dishes to choose from. a la carte is a little pricey but servings are huge. Try the chana masala
  • Try the Paper Masala Dosa - Thought this was as good as any I've had in SF! Asked for cilantro chutney on the side.
  • Mango Lassi is included with the Buffet!
  • Meals are big enough to share or for lunch the next day!
  • The food here is absolutely excellent. Great place for a date, and make sure to save room for dessert!
  • Weekend lunch buffets are what's up.
  • Sunday lunch buffet was very affordable and offered quite a lot of options.
  • Weekend buffet on a Sunday - incredible flavors, good selection - but the service staff seemed oddly almost autistic-like in their subdued approach and lack of verbal communication.
  • Don't expect to be seated quickly
  • Don't wear your nice cloths, they are gonna be smelly. Everything looks dirty here, never coming back
  • It was okay.
  • Decent diverse lunch buffet for 8 dollars. Parking is tricky though. Plan on parking in meter lot 2 doors down from rest.
