cheap, fast, easy

Decent place for a casual dinner with friends. Restaurant at the back of a grocery store - don't bring people you want to impress there. The buffet is all day with about 6 different hot dishes accompanied by fresh tortillas from the kitchen. Proprietor was very accommodating and pointed out all the vegan options to me.
Word of warning: if you can't handle spicy food, go elsewhere. For those who like a bit of kick in their food, this is good authentic Indian food (the fact that all the other customers were Indian definitely is a good sign).

Pros: open late, authentic, inexpensive
Cons: overly casual, spicy

Great Vegetarian Gujarati Indian Buffet

5 Posted on 07 / 14 / 2010

I have eaten here nearly every week since they opened over 3 years ago, as it's close to home. The kitchen is entirely staffed by women, a little unusual for an Indian restaurant. It's run by the wife of the owner of the attached Indian grocery. The food is served hot, buffet style. It is vegetarian, from the state of Gujarat. Usually has two rice dishes, two soups (sambar and sour yogurt) and four vegetable dishes including dal (lentils) or chole (chickpeas). They also have an assortment of pakoras, chutneys, condiments and at least one dessert, usually mango pudding or something similar. The standout is the bread. They do not have a tandoor oven, but the other breads are really delightful: poori, roti, chapattis, pappads, and a sweet filled roti they bring out hot from the kitchen to table. The servers are spanish speaking and everyone is very friendly. The food is spicy but not too over the top hot. I eat Indian food all over Houston and have seen larger buffet selections, but not better. It is not a vegan restaurant, but has vegan items on the buffet. They always offer the bread with or without butter to order. The price is reasonable and they often have special pricing on Mother's day and their anniversary. It's pretty clean, even in the restrooms and you can see into the kitchen easily. I've never had any "after effects" from the food handling. There are some painted murals and plenty of seating and parking. It's well lit. My only nit to pick is the same repetitive Hindu hymn playing over and over on the TV. Well, it's worth enduring for some good food.

Pros: excellent food, good value, friendly staff
Cons: annoying music

    I have been back several times since this review and am happy to report the food is as good as ever and they have taken the music off endless repeat.
