I need advice | Apr 28, 2006 12:29 PM

Stopped in the other day for lunch. I arrived just as they opened so I decided to get the buffet since I knew everything was fresh.

It included lentil soup (seemed like mulligatawny but there weren't any carrots or potatoes in it and was just listed as "lentil soup" on the menu), vegetable pakora, basmati rice, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, aloo matar, daal makhani, and baingan bharta. Condiments included tamarind chutney, red chili achar, and coconut sambal. Two slices of complimentary naan were brought to the table.

I thought it was a great selection. Everything was fresh and tasted great. The chicken in the tandoori chicken and chicken tikka masala were dry but that's my only complaint.

An order of onion naan and a mango lassi were equally as good. The naan (both onion and plain) weren't as good as other places but it was decent. The mango lassi was good. Many Indian restaurants make them too frothy or too sweet. Of course it was nowhere near as good as the version at Punjabi Dhaba.

The restaurant was clean and modern styled. A fair crowd came in for the lunch buffet. Many were regulars. Service was friendly but could have been a little more efficient.

There were nice luncheon specials on the menu. All were about 5.95. I don't think I've seen luncheon specials at an Indian restaurant before. I thought it was a nice touch. Will go back again to try other items.
