Best Indian lunch buffets in Seattle?

Looking for a consensus here, but everyone does seem to have different tastes, so all input is appreciated!

  1. I like Jewel of India on the Ave, just south of 50th.

    1. Not in Seattle, but Udupi Palace has a rockin' buffet (no meat) every day of the week.

      1. I like Pabla Indian Cuisine downtown at 1516 Second Avenue, between Pike and Pine. Their noon buffet features a variety of vegetarian and meat dishes that change daily, tandoori chicken, salad, various chutneys, and even several sweet items for dessert, all for $7.99 (as I recall). Very well prepared and tasty. Popular at lunchtime but ample seating.

        1. Not a buffet but at Cafe Zum Zum (3rd and Madison) for lunch you can get a good lamb peas curry, or a combo with more than one curry.

          1. India Bistro in Ballard, on Market St.

            They usually have a non-chicken meat dish (lamb or goat) which is a nice bonus.
            And I think they're a couple bucks (or maybe just a buck) cheaper than other buffet places.
