Came here for takeout buffet -- was ok.
Butter chicken was kind-of runny.
Saag Paneer (Spinach & Cheese) had only small (and infrequent) pieces of cheese in it.
Tandoori chicken was ok.
Veg Korma seemed more like Aloo Gobi (sp?) because there really wasn't much of a korma-like sauce that I was expecting..
I did like the veg dumplings though.
For appetizer, instead of samosas they have horrible vegetable spring rolls. The naan is a little too thick. The goat or lamb curry is way too salty. The eggplant dish has way too much ginger in it. The daal makhni has too much masala and not enough cream. The rice pudding tastes like overcooked raw porridge.
The mango ice cream and the custard were the only memorable items.
Went today for the buffet, the server was very polite and knowledgeable. He told us some really good tips on what to mix! Excellent service and great food!
Goat curry is kick a@s!
