Buffet is expensive and doesn't even come with naan bread for that price, ordering from the menu is discouraged via staff attitude, A few of the dishes available are really good, but again, seeing as it's mostly legumes and sauce, I don't see why it costs what it does.

Huge buffet though I was bit confused by the condiment selection, think I could have added too much of everything together thus making it hard to appreciate things fully. Great appetizer selection and nicely laid out so you were not bumping into people. interesting selection of desserts and really great that small portions were available to minimize wasting something if...

East India Company is located at a prestigous location in Winnipeg. The ambience is quite welcoming too and so does the presentation.. But as far as indian cuisine served by this venue is concerned it requires refinement, rejuvenation and refreshing. Tried a couple of vegetarian curries, well presented, satisfactory portions but missed that spice blend, that magic, that essence of... More

It always amazes me how good the East India Co. really is. The food is always tasty with the right amount of spices, and the service is warm and friendly. I love the fact that you can sample everything that appeals to you and then make a decision if you want more. The buffet is always kept clean of spills... More

Im not usually fond of buffets finding the quality of food to be inferior, but aside from Vegas, this buffet was one of the best I've had. Quite a selection ...vegan, chicken, beef, and lamb. They even had a crab curry. I especially liked the chickpea curry and onion fritters. Had the mango mousse for dessert, but would pass on... More

Having moved away from Winnipeg, I returned to this old favorite mid-afternoon on a Sunday. Even at this awkward time, the buffet rocked my taste buds. Palak paneer to die for. Butter chicken melted on my tongue. Mango lassi made perfectly. Service was extremely courteous and attentive. Continues to be near the top of my Winnipeg Top Five!!!!

With its convenient downtown location, consistently generous and good buffets, this is our go-to place for Indian food in Winnipeg. The buffet offers salads, appetizers, seafood, vegetarian options, and choice of desserts. I usually make sure to get some of the Indian stuff in the salad bar- chaat-like salads, and I like that they have seafood in the buffet- a... More

Every time I visit Winnipeg I stop here for the buffet. Love it. Lots of selection. Definitely order the chai tea. You won't regret it.

This place is alway good. Lots of hot dishes, some veggie choices and a wide variety of condiments, chutneys and breads. Good quality, reasonably prices and they pour Guinness.
