Reasonably priced vegetarian Indian Buffet to satisfy your cravings

Second time in, both on a Saturday night. The vegetarian buffet is great. This time we tried an add on meat dish...only good, not great. The VB had all the different varieties one could hope for. The Naan was excellent. Only thing I would have liked was maybe a samosa. As I am sure they would be difficult to keep... More

Awesome spot by Main and Fraser. About $10 CAD for a vegetarian buffet of authetic home cooked vegetarian dishes. For an extra $5 CAD there are some meat choices that can be added on. Although it looks like a small buffet, it is packed with flavor and there is variety. They have two desserts included with the buffet but if... More

Considering the cheap price for an 'all you can eat' buffet, this is not half bad. The service was good and the food was average. However, I loved the 'GULAB JAMUN' for desert! mmmmm...sweet enough to rot your teeth on the spot!

Today I went with a Indian friend to “All India” at Main Street and 49th. My friend was happy to find an all-vegetarian buffet there. But his euphoria disappeared very fast when he started eating. I found the buffet not so bad, but also not special at all. The taste was not great. The worst thing to me was the... More

I'm so sorry you and your friends were disappointed with your meals, Ben. Having to eat food that is dry, hard, and lukewarm is unacceptable. We always want our customers to be happy with the food, but it sounds like we missed the mark during your visit. I can assure you we take great pride with the authentic Indian cuisine... More

We placed our pick up order and pucked it up. The fellow at the cash desk was really really nice. The food was ready and hot from the oven. We loved the butter chicken and aloo gobi. The naan was perfect.

Upon entering this restaurant, you pass by the huge glass case filled with awesome looking "sweets". You do get 2 varieties at the buffet. But the best ones need to be purchased separately. The buffet contains a few cold salad items and the hot items are good-tasting but limited in variety. There is papadam & naan bread but no samosas... More

The buffet looked much nicer than it looked. We heard a lot about this area and went specifically to check it out. A big disappointment. Service was good. The ambience was that of any fast food diner. Sweets were good.

Not fancy by any means, this is a great place to go if you're super hungry and don't want to wait for food. All of the dishes in the veggie buffet were really tasty, particularly the dahl. Staff were very friendly and polite and the owner even sent us home with a complimentary pastry that we had asked about.

Staying in Little India / Punjabi Market

Neighborhood Profile
Little India / Punjabi Market
Little India has changed in recent years. While some view it as a declining neighbourhood due to emigration and competition, it is still the original site of the Punjabi Market, and an epicentre for Indo-Canadian culture. The many textile outlets along these blocks boast endless swaths of colourful sari fabric, while the local markets and food stalls waft the savory scent of sugar and spice. Indian fast-pop breaks the quiet of the neighbourhood, as it drifts out from the windows of shops and homes, and glitzy storefronts offer bangles, jewels, and silk at reasonable prices. Join the bargain hunt and step into a world apart in Little India, which becomes especially upbeat during the summer, when celebrations and festivities take hold of its streets.
