San Ramon, CA
Ok, these guys are not just my "Favorite Indian Restaurant" but right now my "Favorite Restaurant".
$9.95 may be a buck or two more than your average lunch buffet but here, you get an exponentially bigger, tastier bang for your buck: Approximately 20(!) delicious dishes (10 of which are vegetarian), tons of sauces, salads and garnishes, pakoras, some kind of fried shrimpy thing, pampadan, dal soup, beverages inc. soda, juice and my favorite, CHAI TEA. And they bring HOT baskets of fresh naan to your table. Oh, and there's dessert too, of course: rice pudding, fruit, those syrupy fried sugar balls (gulab?) AND... MANGO ICE CREAM!!!
The staff are nice, very professional and keep the buffet well stocked and the water glasses full. And the hot naan coming!
I love love love how they separate out the vegetarian dishes so we don't have to ask about every dish. (It is not labeled but it is always the middle section, between the sauces and the meaty stuff. )
Is anyone else salivating or is it just me?
