Please be aware, workers don't wear masks at this establishment. I went to pick up my order and was greeted by someone who came from the kitchen with NO MASK AT ALL. I asked him why doesn't he have a mask on. He said I...just came from the back. Which got me thinking, so the cooks are very likely NOT WEARING MASKS while they are preparing the food. I cancelled my order and will never go back.More

Freezers and refrigerated are located behind restaurant and it smells like sewer on the back side where we go to pick up food for catering. Kofta in Malai Kofta curry were the most rotten one can have. This restaurant pauses major heath hazard to consumer...and must be immediately reported to Department of health. This restaurant needs a super cleaning and contrary to advertisement, food is not fresh at all. It's months old food kept in refrigerators or freezers.More

A few of us came here for a Lunch Buffet since we were in the area. There was certainly tons of food – a little bit of everything – cold and hot foods, vegetarian and non-vegetarian, crunchy and soft, sweet and savory, etc. Unfortunately, all...the dishes were extremely bland. We asked for some spicy sauce, and that helped to liven up the flavors a little bit. The desserts were under-whelming also. The wait staff was extremely friendly, attentive, polite and efficient. The décor was unusual but very pretty, the ambiance was very casual, and the prices were extremely reasonable. All good, but we had come for the tasty Indian food, and this time it did not satisfy. We come to this area often, and our friends order the take-out every now and then, if we return to this restaurant, we will be sure to order a la carte. We are not big fans of buffets anyway.More

Dinner here has always been good, but lately we’ve been coming on a regular basis to the lunch buffet. I’ve been to several Indian restaurants but this is definitely the best buffet around. Besides the excellent preparation, the assortment is much larger than other places....Reasonably priced and delicious-win win!!More

They have a $8.95 bugfet but we choose to order off the menu. Had a mango lassi which was very good. My friend had the chicken tika masala and requested it mild as she does't like spicy food. It was flavorful and delicious. She eat...every bite! The papadum and naan were very good. I asked for lamb vindaloo but received goat vindaloo otherwise the service was very good. Prices are reasonable. Will be back.More

They changed their posted prices and give vague information when I asked about the set up for Mother’s Day so that we ended up overpaying for a buffet for two people who eat very little. The food was ok but I really didn’t appreciate the...swindling. There are many other good Indian places around this area and I will be avoiding Bollywood Tadka from now on.More

This is only my third exposure to Indian food and so far this is a very good restaurant. The place is nice and well appointed. The food was tasty and well prepared and came out fairly quickly. Try the fried cheese! The Bollywood Special is...enough for two people to share if you"re not big eaters or get with an appetizer or two. The lamb was very good. We will definitely go back.More

My wife and I make a habit of stopping off here on our way to New York as they have the best lunch buffet that we've been able to find near the New Jersey Turnpike. Always a good variety of dishes and we've never been...disappointed with our meal. Staff is very nice too. I would recommend this to anyone.More
