Indian Lunch Buffet?

Hi all,

So, my fiancée and I are looking at possibilities for an Indian lunch buffet for a post-wedding crowd of 20 or so near City Hall. (Although, we actually live near the Little India stretch on Gerrard, so that could also work.)

What we'd like to find is the following:

- tasty food, obviously.
- some dishes that will be unchallenging to unadventurous palates.
- comfortable seating (in a private room/area, ideally) for 15-25.
- reliable reservations.
- $15 or less per person.
- if not close to City Hall, or Little India, then easy to get to by car/subway.

Thoughts? Thanks!

      Chef of India, Yonge just a few steps south fo the St. Clair station, is very clean, a good quality buffet, and has a second dining room the right size for you on main level beyond the bar. For people who prefer to drive rather than subway, there is a greenP parking deck a half block south of the restaurant , signed off Yonge.

    2. Hi there, we actually booked the private room at the Host at prince Arthur avenue in can do a set menu either sit down or buffet.but it was a bit more expensive I believe like 22 dollars per head but the food was awesome and the room can be decorated if you wish.

      1. Dhaba I think. He used to be good.

        1. There's a couple of decent Indian places west of City Hall on Queen near McCaul - Trimurti and Babu. All the usual suspects on the menu. I don't know that they have private rooms but they might be able to cordon off an area for you.

            Host is an excellent choice. As you say, 50% more than your suggested budget, but hey , you only get married once. (this IS your first, right?) Just kidding, felicitations and bon appetit.

          2. A friend of mine did a graduation party of Gautama on Gerrard St/Little India. Was good enough for an Indian Lunch Buffet, and the price probably fits your bill.
