indian lunch buffet - richmond hill/markham
I'm looking for suggestions for indian buffets in Richmond Hill/Markham/Thornhill with a good vegetarian selection. I have tried the following:
Jaipur - 28-165 East Beaver Creek Road, Richmond Hill
So far, my favourite even though it's tucked away amongst the "rub & tugs" (hubby's choice of words!). Small buffet (usually 2 meats, 4 vegetarian, some salads, veg pakoras, rice pilau and 4 desserts) but very tasty with a nice kick. Small but Very pretty resto. We eat here regularly.
Indian Kitchen - 7330 Yonge Street, Thornhill
Not terribly impressed. Smaller buffet than Jaipur but amazing naan. Would not go back.
The Host - 670 Highway 7 East, Richmond Hill
New location I believe. Fairly large space. Used to be an Italian restaurant. For some reason it reminds me of FRankie Tomatto's. Larger buffet than the other two. The hot food was tasty but a bit underspiced IMHO. The salads were a bit pathetic looking and dried out (not a high turnover I gather). However the rice pudding was the best I've ever had, lovely cardamom and pistachio flavours. Would definitely go back.
Apologies for not being as eloquent as other Chowhounds in food descriptions.
