Martin visited on a Friday lunchtime in November 2007 and tried the lunch buffet (£7), which was very good. Often, lunch buffets can be a bit hit and miss, but here the food was perfectly cooked, without any of the oiliness sometimes found in Indian buffets. There are always four vegetarian dishes and one non-vegetarian on the buffet: on the day I visited, there was mong dal, potato in a creamy sauce, a dry carrot dish, and a mixed vegetable curry, with kofte (meatball) curry as the non-vegetarian dish, plus rice. The five dishes covered a wide range of styles, with some dry and some with sauce, different levels of heat, and different flavours.
All of the food was what I would categorise as mild to very mild on the heat scale. This may be due to the dishes being on a buffet, where hotter dishes would have the potential to take unwary diners by surprise.
Note that the £7 buffet does not include starter or dessert. There are starters and desserts available on a table to the left of the main dishes, but if you take any of them you will be charged extra. (Sorry, forgot to check exactly how much - I think it was around £2 for starters and £2 for desserts.) I didn't try these.
They added 12.5% service to the bill even though it was a buffet, so the full price for lunch was £7.80.
