I'ev been to quite a few Indian restaurants in California and elsewhere, and I have a few favorite dishes that are not on the menu. Yes the buffet is standard, but that's because the offerings are what the "typical" consumer recognizes and will be amenable to eating. Try ordering from the menu, or ask them to make something else you like but is not listed. Their food is great. The decor itself is just OK, but if you go mainly for the food & are willing to try the menu selections too, you will enjoy it. If you do like the standard buffet choices, they're good too, especially if you go early. Enjoy!
