I want to bring someone who's inexperienced with Indian food to an Indian restaurant for lunch, and I'm thinking that a buffet--where they can sample different things--is the best way to go.
Of course, buffets often don't have the restaurant's best offerings; New Chili and Curry, e.g., is a great place for dinner, but their lunch buffet is unexceptional. I'm hoping to find a place that's a cut above the ordinary.
The Hicksville area (where they're clustered) would be convenient. I'm not looking to go too much further east or west--say within a half-hour or so of the Nassau/Suffolk line.
