Mere bheiti and i went there last week to break rosa. The food was nearly as as good as my amma's and resonably priced. The service was, as you can expect in indian restaurants, mediocre but acceptable. One dude had a mild attitude for some reason. Our water glasses were always filled up quickly and our beer was good and cold. They had flat screens that played sports which i found out of place (like mgmt was sucking up to the whites there) in a desi joint. Instead, if managment is reading this, i suggest they play a wicked mix of bangra and bollywood vidioes (only the ones with decently dressed women, desi sluts would ruin the wholesome family atmosphere that i liked).

I have seen the comments regarding the service, but have never experienced any issues myself. The food is great and I have never seen items run out in the 10+ times I have been at the Fairfax, Herndon, or Chantilly locations. In my experience, a new bowl of food is being brought out when the current one still has a bit left in it.

There are only two complaints I would have about any of these 3 restaurants that I have visited. First is that the food at the Chantilly location doesn't tend to be as spicy as the other two and I like the spicier food. Second is that the Fairfax location seems to be kind of poor at restocking their beer selection (this was experienced during 3 of the 4 times I have gone there for dinner).

Owners attitude is quite horrible. Most Indian customers are not treated well and their credit cards are not accepted if they eat for less than $20.
I went with few American friends, they took the cards without any hesitation..

They buffet often runs out of items and when asked the owner just ignored our request and coolly walked away. His attitude was disgusting and hurting, I will never visit again.

The Minerva buffet is very good with a wide range of dishes. I did not like the service as the waiters wanted to take the dishes away before we were done with it. Most of the waiters were very impolite towards the guests. I had to tell the waiters almost 5 times not to take the dish away.

I go to this place on weekends, during the weekend lunch buffet. This place is packed, but they move people out pretty quickly. The dining area is pretty spacious. They have like 25+ buffet items, the salt and pepper are not counted, which is what some other places do. The service is somewhat bad, there are so many people the wait staff doesn't have time for everyone (need to get more staff). The food is very good. The prices are a little more then the next restaurant, but most places don't have this many items.

PROS: 25+ buffet items, ample parking, pretty spacious, good food
CONS: not that good service
