Indian Taj on Bleecker? (I can't imagine it's any good)
Anyone been to this cheap place on Bleecker between La Guardia and 6th?? I can't imagine it's any good but it's virtually 2 blocks from my place and it would be a wonderful miracle if it at all turned out to be decent.
In particular, I love buffet lunches at Indian places. Is this one at all acceptable?
it's a spinoff of a restaurant in jackson heights that i've always liked. if it operates at even, say, 60% of that level, i think you'll be happy. the queens location also has a buffet, and the vegetarian dishes are excellent. sometimes the chicken -- on the buffet -- is a bit underdone, which can be disquieting, but that's not a regular problem. they also change the trays fairly often, removing stuff that's been sitting around, rather than just pouring new batches over old, as many places tend to do...
I can only attest to the lunch buffet which is mediocre. They use too much cream and possibly not the best oil, as the few times I've eaten there I encountered some severe bloating. The vegetarian dishes are severely under-spiced.
