I am looking for a great (East Indian) lunch buffet in Vancouver. Any recommendations will be greatly appreciated!

    my wife went there for lunch last week and loved it. We're going there for dinner this week.

      Might want to try wandering around the Punjabi Market area: Main and 49th? Lots of restaurants and shops from which to choose. Several have bakeries and snack food to go. Perhaps another 'hound can narrow it down a bit!

        I am specifically looking for lunch buffets in Vancouver. (Thank you, dcrocket, but I won't have a car)
        How is the New India Buffet & Restaurant?

          We've been to New India for dinner many times, but never for lunch. I don't know if the selection is as wide at lunchtime. The food is fairly good - not fantastic, but we enjoy going there. They have the usual - rice, naan, chapati, aloo gobi, tandoori chicken, etc. The butter chicken is OK, but tastes like it was made with Campbell's tomato soup. They have other things on the buffet - jell-o, spring rolls, salad. My son really likes the mutter paneer. I hear that All India Sweets has opened up a second restaurant on Davie Street (the other one is at 49th and Main), and apparently the buffet there is pretty good - haven't tried the Davie location yet, though.
