My Frequent Go To...
Posted on 05 / 25 / 2011
I am elated that the Loop finally has a vegetarian option for people like me so who are inclined. I still am yet to get over to the the one on Olive but I like this spot. They can get super busy in the evenings and weekends but I never have a problem with getting a seat so that is a plus. Parking is not too bad except just having to find change for a meter or sometimes parking (I am sure illegally) behind back.
Food is good. After going so much I am finding that it comprises soups, rices, a lot of different sauces, and maybe a dessert with the salad bear nearby. Don't get me wrong the food is really good but now it has peaked me interest to try the vegan buffet offered at the other one. I don't always want dairy and this one definitely provides a good portion of it.
The cost to me, especially given other buffets that I can get at other Indian restaurants, is a bit high. Its ranges from 10.99-13.99 on different days for the buffet. That excludes any sort of drink. Speaking of which if you order a drink, the owner very well may forget. I have ordered one several times only for him to get into conversations with customers and then forget to bring it or bring it when I am about to leave. So FYI.
My final thoughts - if they offered a vegan buffet night that would be nice; also if they lowered their buffet price during the day/week to work in tandem with their competition they could get even more business from me. IAll in all, I would continue to take friends/suggest it others. ENJOY!
healthy cuisine, very spacious, tasty food
a bit pricey, only vegetarian options, often chatty/forgetful manager
