i eat the buffet lunch at jaipur fairly regularly, not because it ever was great, but because it was convenient, reasonably priced, quick, and good enough for a weekday lunch.
today, though, it went over the line, foodwise.
the dal's primary flavor was potato--not legumes.
the saag was, how should i say this, tired
the cauliflower was fair
the green salad was wilted
and on, and on
the food wasn't even marginally acceptable today.
