Went to Ajanta yesterday in search of good Indian food. Ajanta is located on First Street in Cambridge, across from the Cambridgeside Galleria. Inspired by a review in Zagats claiming a "great lunch buffet", I went for lunch. Unfortunately, it was a big disappointment. The buffet had vegetable korma, a curry dish simply labeled "chicken", and lemon chicken (?) which I assume was tandoori as it had no trace of lemon flavor. The food was mediocre at best.
I know that some might disagree, but I find buffet selections at Indian restaurants to be a good indication of the quality of their food as a whole. Ajanta supposedly has good south indian food, such as dosai, but based on the buffet I can't say that I'll be rushing back there to try it out.
Sigh. The search for good Indian food in the Boston area continues.
