I went there right after they had opened, and yes, we were the only ones in there.
I REALLY wanted to like this place, it seems family run and it would be so great to have an indian restaurant in Madison that ranks above passable.
Honestly, they really push the buffet, which is rather small and sadly heat-lit. I'm not much on buffets to begin with, so my first plan was to hit the menu. Basically, it's a who's who (or what's what?) of the standard Indian fare that you can get anywhere in town, although it implied that they do have a tandor.
I ended up going with the buffet anyway since it seemed like a hassle not to and nothing on the menu really stood out. It was ok. The naan was cold and limp, but I realize that a buffet w/few customers will do that.
I still really want them to do well, so hopefully things will continue to develop over time? Well, here's my 2 cents of unsolicited opinion anyway: Specialization on the menu and ditching the buffet all together would help, or even following the local/seasonal approach of its neighbors might help (or at least justify a $13 Aloo gobi).
Man, some place in town that could throw down an awesome ma ki dal or baigan mirch ka salan would rock my world...
