I've always liked the Shanti but generally prefer to order off the menu at dinner. Today though, I had a craving for Indian and decided to give their lunch buffet another chance. I was really pleasantly surprised. They had a few different dishes on the buffet along with the familiar tandori chicken and they kept the offerings filled. The place was really busy with just one open table when we were leaving. For my experience there have been many times in the evening that there have been just a few diners, possibly because I always dine out so early. Luncheon buffet is still just $7.99 and that really is a bargain.
