Respond to Review of Udupi Cafe
Review: I had heard a lot of hype about how good Udupi is. I LOVE Indian food so I had high hopes. I went during the typical lunch hour buffet and was rather disappointed. The buffet was the smallest Indian buffet I had ever been to; there were 2 entrees, 2 breads and 2 rices (white or saffron). The entrees were LOADED with cilantro... I am not a huge cilantro fan, I can handle the average amount in most Indian food, but this was so ridiculously overloaded with cilantro I decided to walk out! I was really disappointed, perhaps having been spoiled by my hometown Indian buffet (Tandoor in Rochester, NY) that had at least 5 entrees and then lots of little appetizers, rices, soups, fresh fruit, salad, and breads. I went to Green Restaurant just up the street and had the BEST samosa I have ever had instead. I will say Udupi is EXCELLENT in their labeling on the buffet though - every item was labeled whether or not it was vegan - and they brought out fresh food when when trays were emptied.
