Fayetteville Indian Buffet

We frequently visit friends in Fayetteville. He's a fried chicken and NC barbeque kind of guy but has expressed an interest in trying Indian but thinks a buffet will give him a chance to try a variety of items to find some he'll like. This is quite a leap of faith for him. With Fort Bragg so close, I'm hoping there will be some Indian (and other ethnic) restaurants y'all could recommend.

  1. Spent several months there in 2008. I found 2 really good Thai places in Spring Lake: Thai Esan and Sawwaddee. Both are owned by really nice people. The lady at Thai Esan grows her own herbs. I was a woman alone and had great dinners often at both. Thai Esan has a buffet at lunch and, while I don't usually like buffets, I can recommend it and the price is right.

    1. re: Sue in Mt P

      Sue Thanks for the recommendations. I generally agree re buffets, Rich wants to see it; poke it; etc., before he orders it. We vacation in Myrtle Beach a couple of times a year and now he wants to try the upscale Brazilian "buffet" so he can try 1 lamb chop and has a beef fall back plan if if the lamb doesn't work out for him.
