Priya in Berkeley - good Indian and a great suprise dish

This is a buffet Indian previously posted but I think the taste here is quote good. I am not too fond of all the previous Indian buffets I have been to but this one probably get top marks. It bills itself as North and South Indian restaurant.

Papadam, gulab jamon, Rasam, Kadi w/prakora, Aloo Gobi, Chicken Tika Masala, Tandoori chicken is a bit dry, Bagara rice is v good, onion pakora, banda, hot pickle, mango pickle, mango custard. $7.99 for lunch buffet up to 3 pm. Their naan is allright.

Their curry chicken is also v good.

But the surprise dish is called CHILI CHICKEN and must be ordered from their menu. The head waiter gave me a taste when I asked them about the dish as they brought it to another table nearby. It had very slight crunch probably from frying it before hand and then coating it with very slightly spicy sweet sauce and with what looked like mint leaves. It was very delicious and reminded me of what Kan Pong chicken (Korean Chinese dish) that I lamented but it is different prep. My wife and I were both very impressed with this dish and only for like $5.99. This CHILI CHICKEN easily is my best find of the year along with the Vietnamese fish dish I had a while back. It really WOWED me and I had this dish AFTER a full load of great Indian buffet.

Service here is top notch period.

Wonder what else is superb here.
