They have a good basic food menu of burgers and salads - no complaints but nothing spectacular to write about. Lots of seating options for different sized groups including lounge furniture.”

“Our go-to Indian food spot. They have a great, affordable lunch buffet, but we usually go for dinner. Everything is fresh made and the service is top notch. Have liked every. single. thing we have ever tried. We always end up with leftovers and eat them for breakfast the next day. Never (hardly ever) have to wait for a table, the place is huge - Attached to the Ramada hotel.”
