If you really are craving for a Bad Service, This place is epitome of the Bad Service. The Owner is rude, the waiters they have are untrained. This restaurant should be closed, as i saw many incidents of unsafe environment and the Cleanliness was no where. When this used to be called Ruchi, I think it was certainly one of the best Indian restaurant in the town. Ever since new management came. they have brought the standard down, so bad, i think Food Safety inspectors should seriously look into this. This is the first restaurant i found where owner determines what gratuity to be charged to customers at exorbitant rate, even when there is no Table service, It was all buffet. food quality was bad and It had no taste, food on the Floor and someone is going to have a bad accident someday, as I almost slipped on the Sambar on Ground. Bad, BAD Bad in all respects. And the Owner should go for training in Customer Service and Food Safety. I would Rate them the worst restaurant in St. Louis.
This is, by far, the best Indian lunch buffet in the St. Louis metro area. They have the widest variety of dishes to select from and the selection changes daily. If you are looking for a place to try Indian for the first time, this is the place to do it!! I've been eating here for about 5 years now, since it was Ruchi, and drive all the way from IL to eat here, at least monthly! They almost always have several rice dishes to choose from, usually at least 2 or 3 vegetarian dishes, a soup, of course naan and tandoori chicken, several deserts and a good variety of condiments as well. Oh, and they always have a jug of Mango Lassi to sweeten the heat, if spice is too much to handle! ENJOY! :)
