Where is the best Indian buffet in the Boston area?

Went to Indian Delight restaurant in Weymouth today with the better half for their "Super Brunch Buffet." While it was okay for $10 per person, we didn't find it to be a "super buffet." I had higher expectations in terms of variety of food. The buffet had chicken soup, vegetable pakoras, vegetable pancakes, plain naan, rice, lamb korma, tandoori chicken, chicken biryani, garden salad, and a dessert which I didn't try. The food was decent, but the buffet was right next to the door and the food was only lukewarm.

We also ordered a side of lamb samosas. I observed the waiter walk out of the kitchen with the serving platter and proceed to walk over to the buffet and picked up some of the garden salad and added it to the platter as a garnish. Not a big deal, but it seemed kind of wierd that they would do that.

When the waiter brought us the check, it did not include the samosas, so I brought it to the waiters attention. He added them to the bill and then charged my credit card more than what the receipt said. I took the difference off of the tip and circled both the amount they charged and the amount on the receipt for them to catch.

We typically frequent Punjab Cafe in Quincy or Cafe of India in Harvard Square and order chicken do piaza with lamb samosas and naan. Our goal for going to the buffet today was to be able to sample different items without ordering a full order. We want to go to another Indian buffet with better quality and variety. Where do you recommend we go to meet our goal of sampling a variety of foods?
