Thick, creamy curries, crispy cardamom, and sweet sweet desserts are the constant draw of Indian food. I have learned not to have it for lunch, because without fail, I'll conk out by 3PM from the oh-so-delicious heaviness.
Verdict: Eh...won't be going back anytime soon

Papadum & Pakoras
Followed by Butter Chicken, Aloo Gobi, and Palak Pancer. My friend decided to try a dish on her own, and ordered the Palak Pancer - she did not like it at all, unfortunately. I quite enjoy Little India's butter chicken - it's often the reason why I creep my way over there for their lunch buffet.
We also ordered lamb bhuna (tomato-based, with ginger, garlic, and spices), goan fish curry (coconut sauce, green chilis, cumin, and ginger), as well as a few other random dishes...
Not many things were memorable..the fish goan and the butter chicken. I bet that the Tandoori Platter would have been something to write about...if it actually came.
I will admit that I left a little annoyed - not because they forgotten order, but more because the service that followed. It was the end of the dinner, and the group was rather large. I will admit that we noticed it's absence after the bill, which is when I alerted the waiter. He told another employee, and nothing was done. We felt avoided (received no eye contact, couldn't wave them down) until I got up. went to the cash register, and kindly asked what was to be done - and that's when the offer to cook it and pack it to go came. Hum. >15 minutes after the bill was settled...it's a good thing we were okay with just chatting and relaxing.
Salmon Tikka, Lamb Chops, Tandoori Chicken, Seek Kebab...reheated with my Saffron Rice and a pile of green chilis at home
Not sure if I'll be returning - the service is usually quite good so I probably will - but I certainly don't feel inclined to go any time soon. However, after this and Banjara's disappointment...I ought to re-explore the east end for Indian eats! Recs?
