Super cheap all-you-can eat Indian food
Posted on 10 / 15 / 2011
Location is perfect in the heart of the CBD. At $6.50 AUD per meal, all-you-can-eat, it's the cheapest meal you'll have in Australia, guaranteed. Indian food is about average quality. Some food tends to be watered-down and runny, perhaps to stretch the revenue a bit further. This is a perfect spot for backpackers and people trying to save money whilst in Melbourne.
Naan bread is tasty. Mango lassis aren't vegan but are definitely a tasty $2 upgrade. We eat here about 2-3 times per week.
The staff can be "clueless mumblers" sometimes. You may not understand what it is they've mumbled to you, and you may not have a high degree of confidence you will be served quickly in peak hours. You're served in an inelegant metal prisonware tray. Be careful the staff don't hand your metal tray to you hot-end first, causing you to burn your hand or drop your food! (They tend to do that, blindly handing you your tray in a way where you'll be surprised by the heat.)
Cheap, 100% vegetarian, Reasonably decent Indian food
Limited vegan options, Limited selection of 3-5 dishes max, Staff communication skills are poor
