I went to eat 3 days ago and saw the restaurant had a buffet with Indian food. The food had no taste, I’m not an expert in Indian food, but I noticed that it was not good because I have tasted better food at other cheaper restaurant. I later became curious to know how people had reviwed the restaurant and I read the review that MimiLuna wrote and I would have to agree that the rice pudding tasted funny, and probably they added water to the milk. I also disliked the chicken and the carrot desert, they were very dry. I am never going to come to this place again.
We tried the buffet on the last day of Comic Con. The price was $15.99. They had a very small selection of dishes and desserts (mainly vegetarian and only chicken, no mutton). That is not the worst part; the worse is degrading the food in such a vulgar way. I have Indian family and have been in the best Indian food restaurant in New Delhi, Kashmir, Jaipur, etc. I know when someone replaces recipes with cheap ingredients and doesn’t know how to use the spices correctly. There was plain rice, onion korma, samosas, palak (spinach), lentil soup (daal) with or without chicken, chicken tikka, vegetable jalfrezi, chicken tikka masala, and naan. In the salad section they had raita, melon, a cucumber salad, mint sauce, and some other sauce. Desserts: mango moose, kheer (rice pudding), carrot pudding. I had a little taste of everything. The chicken tikka was not let to marinate properly, thus it had no flavor or salt (it was frozen chicken cooked with red dye). The chiken tikka masala needed salt and more flavor, the naan was so thick and cold. The rest of the food needed a lot flavor and salt. I would had to admit the only thing that was a little good was the daal (lentil soup, but I gave it a touch of salt and chili powder). I was hoping the desserts were going to be ok, but no I became angrier. I tried all of them and the worse was the kheer (rice pudding). I know how to make kheer and when I saw the thick grains of rice I was confused. It was horrible because it tasted like a cheap version of arroz con leche, and the cooks had no shame of adding water to the milk, that is just so low. Don’t ask about the carrot cake because it was thick and dry. I left a note inside the check telling the staff this was the worse Indian food I had ever tasted.
