One of the best restaurant in triangle area. – Wonderful South Indian vegetarian food.
Not good food. – I went to this restaurant on 9/27/2008 for dinner with a group of friends and ordered one of their "Royal" south indian items. Waited for about 25 mins for the food to get ready and was NOT amazed at all. The food they serve is very ordinary and NOT fresh. This is an indian thing, really. I would NOT be amazed if they take food from unfinished plates and serve it. Bad food. I really prefer Saffron over this restaurant any time. I will NOT be going there again.
The best Vegetarian dinner around – My wife and our son (who had just returned from a trip to India) had an excellent dinner. The food was well prepared and had a wonderful flavor and the price was quite reasonable. We will definitely go back for their dinner plus will try the buffet during the week days.
Overpriced and bland – Went on a Thursday afternoon for the buffet. There was no indication anywhere of the price, which ended up being a little over $20 for 2. There was a fairly limited selection of poorly seasoned, unimaginative food. It was bland, even for a western palate, bring on the spice!!! I will not be going back.
Worst Food ever eaten – Our friends from DC were visiting us, and we wanted them to have a nice authentic South Indian food. I had heard about quality food being served at this restaurant, so after a whole day of fun we visited the restaurant on a Saturday evening. There was about 20-25 min wait before we could get in, and once seated the waiter was gone. He came back after 10 min and took our order and we asked him to make the food little spicy.
To our amazement we found that all the food was sprinkled with red chili powder and black pepper. The food was so horrible that we had to argue with the waiter, but he responded that the spicy food is like this. That was a horrible experience. I think that the food is already been prepared and kept and they just warm it up and bring it out to the customers and if someone asks for little bit change in the main course they just add something on the top and bring it out. I wont recommend anybody going there. The food was horrible as was their service. The price was also too much comparing to all other cuisines around the area.
Vegan/Vegetarian Indian Food! No Goat! – All vegetarian restaurant, not everything is vegan, but there are no eggs used, only dairy.
Excellent buffet on Sunday morning/afternoon. Dishes are well marked. The waiters will know what on the menu is vegan if you ask.
Fantastic Indian food! – My friends and I went to this resaturant on a late Saturday afternoon and it was fantastic! I'm not sure why other people are complaining about the service, but the entire staff was so friendly and extremely attentive to our table. Our appetizers and entrees came out very quickly and the wait staff was quick to refill water and take away any empty plates. When we were there, there were several groups of Indian people, so that there tells you the food is going to be great. The owner also stopped by our table and had a chat with us. We loved this restaurant and can't wait to go back! It's definitely worth the drive from Carrboro.
Best Udipi Restaurant so far. The buffet is excellent and service good – We visited the restaurant and we pleasantly surprised by the ambiance. The service was friendly and courteous. We had a buffet and the selection of food was great. Best of all, the food is priced quite well. I would highly recommend this place to others.....
Very Expensive and freezer vegetarian food, Bad Customer Service – It is too pricey for very poor quality and ordinary food. The lunch Buffet they do not hesitate to serve same thing for Dinner plate in the evening (YES this true if u do not believe me test it). Lot of stuff like Sambar, Chutney and Vegetable entrees are prepared and kept for 4-5 days in the freezer/refrigerator. All they do is reheat and serve. I am seeing this place for last 2 years their prices have increased so much becuase they do not have much competition in this area for south indian food. They have very Bad customer service. They do not refill the water in time until you interrupt and ask them. They have very less manpower to serve all the tables.
pricy for vegetarian food – Planning to pay more for just vegetarian food ???? This play is good for you.
I never go here if it is not Buffet. wast of money if you are going Alacarte.
Thsa place charges like $10( week day , with tip) and $15( week end) for a buffet.
For god sake this is vegetarian food ? how much does 1 pound of any vegetable cost ( max $4/lb)
how huge are the profit margin ???
he even charges more when it is easter ? good friday ( day to fast ) ? long week ends ? WHY ?
my suggestion DON'T GO HERE . charged more for nothing.
