Why are Indian buffets so much cheaper than ordering a la carte off the menu. In Calgary we ordered a few dishes for take out and when DH went to pick it up he was suprised that it almost cost 3 times more than if we had sat down and had a buffet dinner. When he pointed this out to the cashier they just laughed and said it was true. Anybody have an insights to this?
Other than pizza what else is "good to go" ... and no I don't want Taco Bell or other fastfood types.
Thanks in advance!
