        Agree and well priced too. Not exactly super spicy, but flavourful and a good balance of choices like butter chicken, curry lamb, samosas, fresh nan bread to soak up all the sauces, etc.

          That means it will please my non-chilehead husband too! Even better!

          No they don't. There are no good buffets anymore. About 5 years ago, virtually all the Indian restaurants in Toronto seemed to simultaneously downgraded their buffets drastically. Too bad because the Host was one of the best.

          The Indian Kitchen at Yonge and Clarke in Thornhill is OUTSTANDING! I have never had the buffet but I have heard it is of the same quality as the regular menu.

            Their buffet is poor. Their regular food is highly variable, ranging from reasonably good to not so good. It is certainly not OUTSTANDING.

              I haven't been to Indian Kitchen for the better part of a year (though have had take away a few months back) and have always found their food to be among the best in the city. I am sorry you don't agree, but IMO it is outstanding.

                OUTSTANDING Indian food is what you get in London (UK). In Toronto, you are lucky to get very good.

                Anyway, it's silly to go to Indian Kitchen when the far superior Cusine of Inidia is just a few blocks away.

              I've enjoyed there regular food. I haven't had their buffet, but I've heard it's not so good.

                But if you had to choose between Jaipar, Host and Madras Palace for lunch buffet, which would you choose? Thx.
