Best Indian lunch buffets in S. Westchester?
My wife and I want to give one of these Indian lunch buffets a whirl, but we don't know which ones are considered the best in southern Westchester.
We're hoping there'll be some variety so that we can try some new foods in addition to the usual suspects.
Any suggestions on where to go?
I posted this on another thread recently:
ndian buffets are always awesome! I love Royal Palace in Greenburgh for their variety and quality. Tandoori in Port Chester, even though i haven't been there in a while has great food, but doesn't offer a lot of variety (but they have the staples like chicken tikka masala and saag paneer). I went to Spice Village in Tuckahoe for buffet when they first opened and I loved it. Unfortunately, if you don't like to try new things, this place won't work. When I went, I didn't know any of the dishes, but they were so delicious and Im glad i tried them because i discovered new favorites!
Bengal Tiger on East Post Rd. in White Plains is my all time favorite. The freshness is unsurpassed and very affordable at about $13. Check out some of the older posts on this board. They have a whole buffet of vegetarian dishes and another of meat dishes everyday as well as salads and hot appetizers.
My husband and I and several neighbors enjoy the buffet at Patang on Central Avenue in Yonkers. They have a wide variety of buffet options including 2 meat dishes. The food is very good and fresh. You won't be disappointed.
Another Indian buffet we enjoy is Malabar Hill in Elmsford right on Rt 119. In addition to the buffet with a large seperate salad/condiment bar, they bring tandoori chicken and Naan to the table.
I'll second the recommendations for Malabar Hill and Royal Palace. I actually haven't been to the Royal Palace's lunch buffet, but I really enjoy their dinner buffet so I assume I'd also like their lunch buffet! They have a wide variety of foods, for dinner anyway. I tried the place in Valhalla near the train station and I wasn't impressed by that, it was overpriced for the quality and selection. The name escapes me right now.
I have to disagree with Patang. My boyfriend and I had an awful experience. The seafood curry I ordered was beyond overcooked and the curry sauce itself was so bland and tasteless. Our naan was disgusting and tasted like it had been out in the open for days, and the service was just awful. It was so bad that we had to tell them how bad it was, and they didn't make us pay (we couldn't eat more than a bite each). That is something we have never had to do before, and I hope to never have to do again. Don't waste your time or money.
I would definitely try Malabar Hill in Elmsford. The staff is so friendly there. They always manage to remember my name, and they make sure everyone has whatever they may need. The food is pretty good, and the prices are good too. Their Sunday buffet always has so much to offer.
I like Bengal Tiger a lot, but they have gotten a little pricey. I still venture there, just not as much as previous years.
