Shahi Tiffin Post Ramadan Fast Buffet $8.99 Dawes Rd and Danforth, also Lawrence and Markham

During the month of Ramadan after the daily fast Shahi offers a AYCE buffet for $8.99. About twelve cooked items are said to be put out. My opinion, based on a dislike of almost all Indo-Pakistani cooking that I have had , is that the cooking is inconsistent here. When Shai Tiffin is on, the cooking is very good - it is my problem that I can't handle heat-; when it is off, it is good cooking screwed up. This is opposed to say Raby, which is mediocre cooking with no potential. I know that the naan is usually excellent at ST..

This place does not usually offer a buffet ; it is special for Ramadan. There should not be the typical buffet oil pools and goop bogs.

Chowtime is about 8,30- 8.45.

I will go either tonite or tomorrow - marauding Monday - $8.99 AYCE!- and report back.

    Went Sunday. Their regular menu items freshly prepared in so far as they do and put out buffet style. Items with varying quality of preparation, but generally pretty good. But what do I know, except for the dates, which could easily and and quite cheaply been better.

    In the end , a very good deal for the price and good opportunity to try a range of their cooking.

    Anyway, Indo- Pakistani cooking is not for me - definitely not comfort cooking. I reiterate my vow- the last time- which means until the next time.
