    I don't think we'll be coming through late enough tomorrow to try it for lunch, but we'll keep it in mind, unless someone chimes in with a bad review. ;-)

      Appealing picture of the food on its website. What's the closest large town to this area?

      When you visit the place or call in, please have management review its website for spelling of words on its menu listing of items. A few words are misspelled, and one in particular turns an appealing item into an appalling one (hint: soup).

        That's funny! But, cleanliness is important!

        Moosic is just outside of Scranton.

      I haven't been in probably a year or more, but I always found it to be quite good. The lunch buffet is a good deal.

        Ate there years ago and it was the worst indian food I've ever had. Way too salty and greasey, some items being inedible. Perhaps they have changed or it was an off night but we never went back and never heard anything good about the old one from anyone else.

          Well, we didn't stop, and it probably isn't that likely. We're totally hooked now on stopping at Wegman's when coming through there. We stopped both ways this trip! Shopped for some stuff on the way up to use over the weekend.

            It is definitely worth stopping there instead of Wegmans. I have eaten there at least a dozen times (including at their original place at the hotel down the road) and always found it to be good quality and clean.

          I was just there last Saturday night and the food was fantastic. I had been to their old location several years ago and wasn't impressed, but this time everything was great (especially the tandori lamb chops!) 2 appetizers, 2 entrees and 2 deserts were right around $50
