I recommend the grand buffet which offers unlimited mango juice, several chaats, and a buffet. The mango juice is thick and flavorful. The "chaats" are Indian street food appetizers. The bhel puri is probably my favorite! A waitress successively serves each chaat, resulting in the fun experience of being served several small courses. It always make me feel like royalty! These small dishes are unique, so anyone who enjoys trying a variety of foods should enjoy herself. You will be nearly stuffed after the chaats, but next comes the buffet! The buffet has several curries, vada, a couple desserts, and rice. Banana Leaf changes the buffet selection daily. You can help yourself to coconut chutney. I am a huge fan of this and sometimes eat it by the spoonful, which is not traditionally done given that chutneys are sauces. Banana Leaf also has a menu if you do not want the grand buffet.
All of the food is flavorful and wonderful! I have loved everything that I have tried here, but you have so many options to choose from, with the chaats and buffet, that it is inconsequential to your dining happiness if you do not prefer some of the items. You will be extremely full when you leave! Kamal and the staff are very friendly. It is a locally owned hole-in-the-wall. It is one of my all-time favorite restaurants. You should eat here!
This restaurant is very friendly to vegans! First off, almost everything there is vegan. Let the waitress know that you are vegan and she will make sure that the kitchen prepares all of your chaats vegan (which simply means omitting yogurt in one or two of them). Mango juice is vegan whereas the mango lassi is not, as it is yogurt-based. All items in the buffet are clearly labeled as vegan or gluten-free.Pros: Food Quality & Variety, Wonderful Staff & Ambiance, Very Vegan-Friendly
Cons: Vegetarian (Not Entirely Vegan)
