Respond to Review of CLOSED: The Vegetarian's Paradise
Review: From Russell Square station, go straight down Marchmont St in front of you until you reach the restaurant which is on the left side of the road. The restaurant is decorated in cottagely Western style with checked tablecloths on the small tables. There is a bar on one side for drinks which is something you see in many Indian restaurants. It was very quiet when we went, with only one other couple there. Probably because it was new years day. It was an all you can eat buffet for lunch. This included appetizers such as pappadams and other fried items, about four curries and rice and naan as well as dhal and some other dishes and some Indian sweets. There were also relishes and chutneys. It was decent, if not quite absolute the best I've ever had. There were some very nice sweets and it is the biggest range I have seen at an Indian restaurant so far, about 4 or 5 different kinds. Check whether these are vegan though, they may not be. There was one person on the floor and he was friendly and quite casual, chatting to us about a few things before leaving us to ourselves to eat lunch. He let everyone know before he packed up the buffet to give us an opportunity to get another helping if we wanted. It was just over GBP5 for the all you can eat lunch. Very good value. If Bhel Poori House at Angel is the budget buffet and Rani is the deluxe this one fits in the middle and would probably be my choice of place to go most often if I had to choose.
