 average – nothing special, nothing terrible
 low range
Even though this place has an average rating, my husband and I return here often because it is so cheap!
 If you are eating in the buffet section, they are good at removing dirty dishes quickly, and replenishing clean dishes. 
FOOD: If you order Pav Bhaju from the menu – IT IS EXTREMELY delicious. Another item that’s good from the menu is the pani puri – fresh and yummy! If you are eating at the buffet, I recommend the butter chicken.
AMBIANCE: Well…there is a nice mural on one side of the wall.
What is Bad:
SERVICE: (N/A) If you are eating at the buffet, there is hardly need for service.
FOOD: The buffet food is usually very salty and not always fresh. The sweets definitely look stale.
AMBIANCE: There are two sections here…when you enter you can pay for food from the menu and sit down at the tables or pay for the buffet and then go through the entrance door again to get to the buffet section.
This is a bit confusing. Also, it looks like they never clean the place apart from maybe sweeping and wiping the tables.
THE Bottom Line: My husband and I usually end up eating the buffet here when we are too lazy to cook, but don’t want to spend a lot of money. At the end of our meal, we usually feel vaguely satisfied because we saved, but ate poorly.
If you are really strapped for cash, then this place isn’t too bad. Also, the items from the menu are actually tasty. 

Accepts Credit Cards: Yes, but with a charge. Better to pay in cash.
