I came in on a whim awhile ago. The food was ok, but did not suit my tastes. I think I have been spoiled by the flavours of The Bombay, also in Port Coquitlam. The owner was very very nice and attentive.
As for the poster who mistakenly asked how someone who is vegetarian can make a meat dish, and an indian meat dish at that...for someone who probably likes food (clearly enough to post comments on food) I would assume they would be a bit more culinary educated. You will find that the majority of indian restaurants have vegetarians as cooks, this is due their religion and culture. I may also open your eyes to Vij's indian restaurant in Vancouver. They have consistently been called the best Indian food restaurant in North America, with a kitchen staff of all women and wait for it......all vegetarians.
It looks like this restaurant has undergone a facelift or new ownership. I wish it the best and hopefully the flavours improve. I will give it a second shot.

As the other posters have said, this place runs off of the hungry appetites of the nearby students. You must have cash as they do not accept debit/ credit. The rolls are very large and well priced. Value is the number one goal. If you are interested in going for Japanese for the pure enjoyment of the food, this place is not for you.
The food is absolutely an insult to Japenese food, poor quality, suspect cleanliness & not much in the way of ambience. The staff are nice & you get a siginificant amount of food for your dollar.

This restraunt was closed about 1 year ago for being unsanitary (closed for 2 weeks). I believe it was done by the fraser valley health authority. Anyways, before i knew that I had the food every once and awhile. Big portion for the low prices, food is pretty greasy but what do you expect from Chinese food? Not bad if you want to feed a big group for cheap

I have frequented this place for the last 3 years & it is easily the best indian food I've ever had. For those who say that the food is bland, give your head a shake. I have noticed siginificant taste
variations between food that is mild in heat & Indian hot. Now perhaps that is where these comments of bland taste would come from.
The buffet is a 7/10 at best but if you are in the mood for variation and want to stuff yourself a bit than its a fantastic alternative. Also, because the food is designed for the majority you will find that the food is not "spicey" or near as flavourful as menu items beacuse of this.
Portions tend to be smaller when eating in as opposed to take out so I generally go for the take out. Unlike most indian restraunts the Bombay flavours their rice with cloves & cardomum as well as including sliced carrots & peas (sparingly), so its not your plain boring Basmati.
My recommendation would be the Butter Chicken (Hot)Because this is the North American staple of indian food you might as well choose this dish to help fairly judge the restaurant.
