Had some pre-millennial chow at Tanjore during buffet; the food was okay, but rather towards the sweet side. For my money, buffet is much better at Himalaya, on Mass Ave. between Newbury and Comm Ave.- much more aggressively and interestingly spiced.

On Friday afternoon the wind around some of the large buildings near the Prudential felt like we imagined it might be in the Himalaya range in Nepal. My wife and I hoped to catch lunch at the Himalaya and then catch a movie at the Cheri Theater. Not to be - the T was vwery slow --- instead a quick cup of joe and a bagel at Dunkin Donuts and then to find that the movie had changed - so we took a walk back to the Himi - just after 3 PM and they were closed 'til 5. Deadly. I'd hoped to follow up Seth's review and see what I thought. Instead it was a long, sad trip back home.

I hadn't read last Sunday's Globe that closely - page B2 - "The City of Boston's Inspectional Services Department temporarily closed three restaurants during November and December for violations of the State Sanitary Code that posed immanent health hazards.

Spagnulo's at 242 Hanover St. The Exchange at 148 State St. and Himalaya at 95 Mass. Ave."

I wonder about those "interesting spices" :-)
