I'm headed there tonight with a group. Any recommendations for what's particularly good?

    Peshawary Naan. Coconut, raisins, almonds and pistachio. Delicious.

      I never can pass up their meat samosas or vegetable korma. I then tend to order off their specials menu.

        What did you end up ordering? Did you enjoy it?

          I think you probably were asking the OP, but the last time I went, I hit up their buffet for lunch on the weekend and it was quite good. I generally prefer to order off the menu, but they were keeping the buffet filled and everything was fresh. There are times that I end up there every Saturday or Sunday for weeks on end.

            We enjoyed it very much. The peshawary naan was a big hit around the able. Spinach and lamb are my big favorites in Indian restaurants, so the Lamb Shaag really appealled to me and it was very good. Meat samosas were good too. I'll definitely be back.
