Our buffet offerings including doughy pakoras, salad, jasmine rice, palak paneer, dal (lentils), goat curry, chicken tikka masala and the ubiquitous tandoori chicken. Our naan (choice of plain or garlic) was excellent; it came hot and crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. I’m a spice wuss, but even I thought the curries could have used a little more kick. The tandoori chicken thighs were dry, but the drumsticks were good. The sleeper hit was the goat curry; the goat was tender and not too gamy. Jess enjoyed the chicken tikka masala and the palak paneer had large chunks of the fresh cheese. Kheer, rice pudding, was the only dessert. It was good, but hardly noteworthy.
The service was attentive, which very important in any Indian restaurant – I frequently need water refills. The buffet was $10, which is on the higher end, but let’s not forgot we are in the South End. Lastly, you won’t forget that you are in the South End when you are searching for parking, which is near impossible to find. The weekend buffet is $13, but has many more selections.
