Positive Update on Om (South Indian) San Rafael

TerriL | Jan 28, 2008 07:47 PM

I've been a huge fan of this restaurant since it opened (sometime over a year ago). I went in a couple weeks ago for lunch, and was beside myself when I saw that they had begun serving a lunch buffet. I was worried that they had changed it up in order to compete with Bombay up the street, which serves a massive (and, to my taste, horrible) buffet.

I stubbornly ordered from the menu (spinach chicken), while my husband tried the buffet. We went back last week, and I have to say that the new setup is great. It's not a huge selection (which I think is a plus), but everything was terrific. There were about 10-12 items (not including dessert and condiments), including 2 kinds of curry with meat, another couple of vegetarian curries, spiced whole chicken drumsticks (*not* tandoori!), 2 kinds of soup, regular rice and a wonderful coconut rice. I don't remember the other stuff, but it was a good selection.

I was told the selection would vary daily, except for the drumsticks. Lunch also comes with your choice of a large masala dosa or chapaathi bread. Service is very attentive, and lunch is well-priced at $7.99. Check it out!
