Neha Palace, Yonkers

Is anyone familiar with this Indian restaurant? It's on Groupon, so I took a look at the menu, and I thought that it had some interesting things on it including some dosas, which you don't always see. I had never heard of this place before.

    Its last incarnation was Bukhara bistro / Grill I don't remember what it was before Bukhara and it was hit or miss mostly miss. I had no idea they closed. I will be happy to take one for the team next time I'm in the area. I have never encountered dosas being offered at a buffett. I had a really great meal ( lunch buffett ) at Tandoori in Port Chester last Saturday the time before was not nearly as good. In addition to many good dishes they had a really delicious cold eggplant dish thinish slices with diced tomato, onion cliantro and topped with what looked and tasted like some type of exotic pesto.

    I still like Spice village for their diverse selection of offerings.

      Off topic for the OP's request...but to reply to chowdom: dosas were offered at the Mon-Thurs dinner buffet at Royal Palace in Greenburgh, along with make your own bel phuri and other treats.
      I always enjoyed their dinner buffet and felt the food was varied, of good quality, and well worth the visit. I don't know of any other Indian dinner buffets in our area.
      I haven't been to Royal Palace in a few months and the dinner buffet isn't mentioned on their website. http://www.royalpalacecuisines.com/
      Agree about Spice Village, and they deliver to Scarsdale!
      Maybe someone who has been more recently can update? TIA.

        Thank you mrsdebdav and thank you JMF. We were actually going to try Neha today but decided to have a late breakfast instead....Perhaps one day I will spell buffet correctly!

        Is Spice Village really good? I went a few months after they first opened and it was so forgettable that I actually forgot about it until your mentions.

          Not as good as it used to be but a lot better than most, they also offer the greatest variety. Interestingly the food on the buffet is better than anything I have ordered off the menu, that used to not be the case. In spite of some inconsistency as of late my favorite is Tandoori in Port Chester.

            Had the lunch buffet at Tadoori Saturday once again it was not not nearly as good as it could have been.

        I ate here years ago when it was called something else. I always liked it very much, but it was too geographically inconvenient and the parking was limited as I recall. The menu has some great vegetarian items. Along with Roxlet, I'm eager to hear if anyone has been. Thanks.

          I went for the lunch buffet a few weeks ago, very unforgettable.

          Only liked the vegetable pakoras. All other dishes were borderline inedible. Naans were not bad.

          Definitely not returning.

          Used to really like Spice Village but have noticed a slide downhill recently....

            Do you mean forgettable? I wonder if the buffet is different than the a la carte dining experience.

              I wish I had read this earlier. I went to the buffet today and it was terrible. Very poor quality, poor cooking, no flavor or spice. The naan wasn't bad, but 1/2 the pieces had too much gee brushed on so it was greasy.
