Respond to Review of Om Vegetarian - Collins St
by Tiggy

Review: I realised while I was here tonight that I hadn't reviewed this place, which, like a lot of customers, I go to regularly because of its $6.50 all-you-can-eat buffet. It has to be noted that there are signs saying that there is a maximum sitting time of 45 minutes, so there are limits. There are also no refills after 8:30 pm. The food is cheap and this is great, even if the meal is rather ordinary - a curry, dhal, rice and naan. For this reason you might say there's not much room to complain but I think we can recognise what could be improved. One thing I've noticed over time is that you are a bit disadvantaged if you're vegan. Although they offer a vegan meal on request, this often takes significantly longer than the non-vegan version because they prepare the vegan naan specially, cutting into your 45 minute). (It takes longer to leave *off* the butter?) I've found myself sitting for some time watching a lot of people who didn't order a vegan version being served their meal while I wait. I've had the samosas here (served with chilli jam) and they're OK but last time I went in I was told (contrary to previous responses) that they weren't vegan. I didn't have one but I'm not quite convinced of this and will follow it up. Decor is plain, as the eatery is located in a small food court, and formica tables are closely spaced. If you are there late, as I have been on occasion, you're likely to be swept out, asked to move tables so the staff can clean. I'll continue to come here because it's cheap and I like the naan, but I tend to leave a bit of a break between visits.
