cheap, good Indian buffets on the westside
I was wondering if any of you could recommend any cheap and good Indian buffets on the westside, especially for lunch?
New India Grill on Westwood just a couple blocks south of Wilshire is a decent and inexpensive spot. They do a buffet every weekday and I think they offer different dishes each day.
I agree with this poster's assessment, particulary of India Sweets and Spices. Don't be put off by the negative ambience (rickety picnic tables, flimsy styrofoam containers, etc)--their food is excellent.
Anapurna is all vegetarian, and not as good as Chandni, which is also vegetarian, but more in Santa Monica, on Wilshire around 19th.
Nawab (at 16th and Wilshire in SM) has a lunch buffet on Saturday and Sunday for $13.95 that includes salad, rice, chicken curry, those fried puffed things in sauce, eggplant bharta, lamb dish, tandoori chicken, raita and mint sauce, pickles, and fruit dessert. Selection on the meat dishes varies. Oh, and a glass of champagne. Also nan bread.
My new favorite on the West side is @ Bharaat Bazaar in Mar Vista/Culver City. Like India Sweets and Spices, it is a Grocery Store with counter service indian food and tables on site but I would argue it is head and shoulders above India Sweets and spices with none of the Negative ambience found at ISS
Try it you'll like it.

Gaylord's on La Cienega just north of Wilshire Blvd. has a good lunch buffet daily for about $13.00 per person. Their nan bread is heavenly.
