I'll be home for Christmas! And my birthday!
Anyways, I've always wanted to eat at the Bengal Room (I think). That tiger pelt on the wall just whets my vegetarian palate. As a kid, I was obsessed. But we could never go, because my mom hated Indian food. We used to eat at Kiplings fairly regularly, which I liked as a kid.
I called home the other day to discuss where I'd like to go for my birthday dinner, and I said that I would actually prefer a brunch buffet. My mom said, "Brunch buffet? Does it have to be brunch? Because I've heard the Indian buffet at the Empress is really good." Apparently she's had a change of heart and is now willing to try Indian food.
So... how is the buffet in the Bengal Lounge? I'm happy with two or three vegetarian options, but I'm hoping the overall quality will be good enough to convert my mom to a curry lover!
Anyone been lately? Or not lately? How is it?
