Minneapolis - Lunch Buffets

Can you please make some recommendations for some Minneapolis Lunch buffets?

  1. If you are DT Mpls and enjoy Indian food then I'd opt for Bombay Bistro. Pretty sure it's under $10 and every time I've been it's been such a wide variety of excellent dishes....

    Bombay Bistro
    820 Marquette Ave, Minneapolis, MN 55402

      i second the nomination for bombay bistro. there are actually 2 locations, I'm talking about the one with an entrance on the street, near the crepe place. the other is off a skyway.

    2. The Himalayan Lunch buffet on Franklin Ave. is small but pretty darn good.

      1. Minneapolis city limits, or just the general area?

        Nala Pak has one to die for. That's Columbia Heights, though.
        The salad bar at Fogo de Chao (Downtown) is absurd, but fun. I believe you can order it without the meat.
        Marina Grill and Deli (in SE) is a bit hit or miss, but there are an awful lot of shots on goal, so you'll find something good.
        New King Buffet (Brooklyn Center) is the best Chinese buffet I have had, and the only one where I have tasted any semblance of spice.

          Always found the buffet at Nala Pak to be lacking, the items off the menue a good though. I went to the India House in Columbia Heights and found their buffet quite good. They are located in the old South Asian Foods location at 765 53rd.
