Amber India, Yerba Buena (SF)

I just had a delicious buffet lunch ($$) at the Mountain View location of Amber India and learned that there's a new branch of the restaurant at Yerba Buena.

Has anyone tried the buffet lunch there? If so, would you recommend it? I heard it was $20, -- quite a bit more than the MV location, which is already priced higher than most Indian buffets (but totally worth it, in my opinion).

Let me know what you think. Thank you.

    I have not eaten there after seeing the prices, but at $20, it would be half the price of eating there for lunch a la carte.

      The lunch menu's not online, but looking at the prices on the dinner menu, ordering a la carte would not necessarily cost anywhere near $40.

        It would with tax, tip, and a drink. The lunch entrees are all close to $20, and do not comprise a complete meal.

      If you are near upper Clement India Clay Oven was $8.95 and here is an enthusiastic review.

        Ate there over the weekend - the buffet was excellent. Roughly 18 dishes, 5 desserts, naan delivered fresh to the table, and a chef making pani puri and another chaat to order.

        While old standards are there (tandoori chicken, butter chicken, etc.) there was a good variety of interesting dishes like Amritsari catfish and a really excellent paneer dish.

        Highly recommend it if you can enjoy the food without worrying about the price.
