What is special about this lunch buffet is the appetizer counter that you can get the chef to make Dahi bhalla, Bhel Puri or Papdi Chat right there for you. ( These are very typical snacks made famous on the Juhu beach in Bombay/Mumbai) I also like the Chole ( Indian Cheick peas dish) placed on this griddle very miuch like you would see in the markets in Delhi or Mumbai . This is eathen with fried bread called Bhatura ( also on the lunch buffet menu). Very good food and love the variety.

Only peeve this lunch buffet had 4 dishes all red in color. As a chef myself I would have added a different dish to make the balance. of cource what's a Washington DC metro area indian buffet without Chicken Tikka Makhni or butter Chicken .

Suggestion to these folks. Start a dosa counter too for people as part of the buffet.
