Any good Indian buffets downtownish?


Just wondering if there are any good Indian buffets available in the downtown area? I've read the other boards and heard great things about several Indian restaurants but the friends that I am eating with can really eat a lot so trying to find a place that will satisfy both our taste buds and stomachs. Any help would be great! Thanks in advance.

  1. Short answer: no, there are no good Indian buffets downtown (that I know of - please someone chime in if there actually are any).

    Long answer: if someone put a gun to my head and *made* me eat at an Indian buffet downtown, I'd probably try Bombay Palace. It used to be "OK" but I haven't been there in years - it might have gone downhill since then. Avoid Buffet Maharajah.

    1. Le Taj has a decent lunch buffet that is as good as it gets in this town for indian buffets.

      1. well i completely agree with the posts here. When i came to montreal 5 months back, 1st day i went to maharaja. I was 1 of the worst Indian food had ever. Bombay palace better than Maharja still no good.

        1. There is no such thing as a good Indian buffet.

          1. how much sag paneer can one eat in a sitting? Lol

            Maharaja ... went there years ago. Remember the bloated, msg wretchedness I was feeling before I waddled out of there.

              I once ate an entire buffet insert of saag aloo.
