I just discovered this place a few days ago, and I love it! For those who haven't been, channai is a south indian restaurant on 27th bet lex and park. For lunch (12-3), they have a modest, but delicious vegetarian buffet for 6.50 with tax. There's a salad, sambar, mini uttapam [my fav] with coconut chutney, paratha, plain and flavored rice, 2 or 3 veggie curries, and some strange, indian dessert [sorry- indian desserts still mystify me]. For the price, I think the quality is excellent. The only down side is the place is small, and tends to be quite crowded and noisy. For that reason, I'm wondering if there are any other south indian buffets u would recommend? Also, if any one has any opinions on channai?
