Help pls! Pay-what-you-will brunch in DC?

Hi all--

A while back I came across a review of a "pay what you will" Sunday brunch in DC. But I can't for the life of me remember exactly where I read about it. I searched my usual online news sources and blogs, to no avail.

I seem to remember that it was an Indian restaurant, and I want to say it was in the Dupont Circle area. But my memory is terrible, so I could be way off base.

Sorry I can't offer more info. Does this ring a bell for anyone?

    I know Heritage India does a weekend Indian brunch buffet...but unless things have changed I don't think it's a "pay what you will" (Although not even 100% sure what that means.).

      "Pay-what-you-will" just means that there's no fixed price for the meal. Diners pay what they think is appropriate.

        I think that's Spanish for "we'll be closed in a month."

        I think this is what you're remembering:
        Karma Kitchen at Polo India Club in Dupont.

            How is the food? Is it typical Indian buffet stuff?

              Food is good, its all vegeterian and run by volunteer in a pay-it- forward basis. You should visit this place. It rocks
