    The Sunday lunch buffet never fails to satisfy. Good variety and everything is delicious. Top notch service and newly decorated dining room is much more pleasant. Arrive hungry as there's plenty to sample.

    Visited for lunch and sat inside due to the cold weather, which wasn't very inviting. There was no music and it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop, it was like being in an empty shrine. Our server was all business and not too friendly, and I actually thought he was a customer when I first entered as he was just just dressed in jeans and a t-shirt, and didn't look anything like how their staff used to look. But the food was really delicious and the portions were big for lunch, so we had enough left over for dinner. My wife had a mango lassi which was awful! It tasted like it had been through the smoker and nothing like their lassis usually taste. Business like server was not impressed with her dislike for it LOL

    I'm hoping they work on the service and bring back the young enthusiastic staff like they had before, and improve the dull atmosphere.

    The inside dining room is quite nice but it's so much better if you get to sit outside. The service is very attentive and the food is VERY tasty! The biggest issue I always have here is deciding what to order as the menu has so many delicious sounding items on it. Their weekend buffet allows you to sample their dishes and have a variety. The Indian beers they serve are nice and light with flavor and the mango lassi really helps to cool your mouth if you ordered your food spicy.

    Highlight of visit: If you're new to Indian food and it's not buffet time, order a Thali that offers a variety of small samples of their popular dishes. plus you get naan and a desert.

    Sadly, 5th Element is not what it used to be. We have dined here so many times but noticed a decline over the past month, especially with staff attitudes, plus the food just doesn't taste as good as before. I understand many restaurants are cutting back and there's a general labor shortage, but that doesn't count for bad attitudes and recipe changes when spices are inexpensive. I'll continue to visit in the hopes that they're just going through some internal problems and they correct things.

    They know me now as I always get the same Mixed Veg Pakora appetizer and the Veg Vindaloo dish every time and a large Taj beer! That's my perfect meal lol Always like sitting outside and the staff is excellent. Best restaurant in town in my opinion.

    Highlight of visit: The Veg Vindaloo is awesome... nicely tangy and spicy.

    My husband and I love this restaurant! Their chicken tandoori is second to none. It is affordable, and the staff is ultra attentive. One of our favorite digs, and we are food snobs from LA.

    Highlight of visit: Tandoori chicken!

    Sat outside and enjoyed the weekend buffet. Plenty of excellent dishes available and I really liked the Chicken Tika and Saag Paneer, but everything was so very tasty. Love all the condiments and naan bread. Staff kept drinks coming and table clean of dirty plates. Good value if you arrive hungry.

    Lunch buffet had some tasty options but disappointed that it was not replenished. Wanted to go back for more but it was not available. Server said it was because we came in towards the end but they charged us the same as if we were in at the beginning!!! I have been before and the buffet was much better so I guess you have to get there early or pay for very little food.

    We thought the all you can eat lunch buffet had plenty of good choices and was good value. The food was fresh and they kept it well stocked. All the dishes we tried were delicious but I would have liked them to have a little more spice (heat). The staff were highly efficient and the setting is nice.

    Our waiter was excellent and the food tasted very authentic. Loved the Lamb Rogan Josh (sp?) and the Saag spinach dish was so good. Try the Taj beer too... it goes perfectly with this food. Very nice dining on the outside area. Very happy we found this restaurant.

    The food tasted very authentic and had good flavors. Their buffet at lunch has a good variety of items and is a great way to sample different dishes and I really like their breads too. We went for dinner on last visit and service was on the slow side. It's also nicer to sit on the patio as the inside is too bright and lacks ambiance.

    Everything on the buffet tasted amazing and the service and atmosphere were excellent. Plenty of dishes to choose from and all I had was so tasty especially the Chicken Tikka. Staff hover around and take your plates and keep drinks full. A first class restaurant with a nice setting too.

    Their Sunday buffet spread is incredible with so much variety and many delicious choices. The service was very attentive and we loved every dish that we tried. I never thought I'd see my husband eat okra so much LOL The patio seating is wonderful and the mango drinks are to die for.

    Visited for lunch buffer today Jan 9 and it was excellent. Lots of really flavorful items to choose from and all were hot and fresh. It's clearly marked what the dishes are and they have several compliments and condiments too. Service was professional and the outside seating was lovely.

    Absolutely delicious food and the best Indian I've had in Florida. Buffet on weekends is awesome. Service very attentive and good patio seating area. Cocktails could be better but Indian beers are great and I love the mango soft serve to cleanse the pallet after.

    Buffet didn't have as many dishes as it used to but what they did have tasted very good. No problems with staff and service and really like the Taj beer. Patio area is nice but busy with Sunday market crowd.

    They have inside dining room open now but we chose to sit outside as the evening was lovely. Staff very efficient and will guide you if need help with the menu. We had a variety of dishes and loved every one. They get so many different flavors into their dishes it amazes me. Their rice and breads and accompaniments are all very good too. I don't how they get their rice so every grain is separated.

    Highlight of visit: My favorite dishes are the Chicken Jalfrezi and the Appollo Fish.

    They have their buffet back and it's just as good as before. So many really delicious items to chose from... love the exotic flavors and their breads are to die for. Service was good but more lackluster than it used to be.

    Awesome to have their buffet back again!! I had missed it so much. Food as good as ever with a wonderful variety of delicious dishes. Service spotty but I think they were newish. Only complaint is their cocktails are really not worth it! I think they need a dedicated bar tender. Lovely sitting outside in the square (triangle?) watching all the activity.

    Service gone downhill lately. Ordered food for pick up and the guy handed it to me with it all falling out the bottom of a soggy paper bag! It was quite a large order and was all crammed into one paper bag and he expected me to carry it home like that! He seemed indignant when I asked for another bag and left me to re-pack it myself. Food did taste good though. Just needs much better customer service.
