Decent Indian lunch buffet

neat location overlooking a valley. The buffet was decent and the place was busy with patrons. Food was constantly being added, so it was very fresh. The servers were attentive and cleared plates. You also had a choice for naan with your meal and I was suggested to try the garlic naan which was... read more

We thought we would try this place for lunch first since they had a buffet. We were extremely disappointed. Several of the buffet items had been depleted, but never replenished. Basic items like Naan were absent. When we asked one of the staff who appeared to be the manager he just looked at us and walked away. The items that... More

I have been to this restaurant many times for the lunch buffet, for dinner and for takeout and have never been disappointed. I often see parties on the weekends with Indian people so they appreciate the food. The staff is friendly and the service is good. The lunch buffet is so fresh and delicious. They always offer vegetarian and meat... More

We were in Shelton for an appointment and used an online search to help us find a place for dinner. We LOVE Indian food and the high rating persuaded us to try Baingan. We LOVED it! We started with vegetable samosa. I had Chicken Tikka Masala and my husband had Shrimp Tandoori Masala. Everything was cooked perfectly and served in... More

Indian food at a restaurant for us meant a drive to Norwalk/ Stamford/New Haven. Baingan in Shelton was a discovery for us. Firstly, the restaurant is not part of a strip mall, which in its own way adds to its exclusivity. Once inside it is quite spacious. There is outside seating as well, overlooking the river. Though the menu had... More

Baingan got off to a shaky start - some times the food was good, some times not. BUT lately the food is always fabulous. A must if you like Indian food!

Had delicious, melt-in-your-mouth medium heat goat curry, refreshing cucumber salad ( enough for 2) & their garlic naan is light & flavorful . Came initially to sit outside but their deck is not all that appealing-more attention should be paid to the tables, umbrellas & plantings (none that I saw) but our corner table inside overlooking the river was perfect!...

We have been on business for two weeks and this is the best food so far. Don't pass up the bread basket, the naan is amazing. We had a few curries and the dessert was amazing. Work you way through the menu...it's amazing.

We are so happy to have good Indian food in town! They are always so friendly here. The food is yummy. We order a lot of the vegetarian entrees and have never been disappointed. We have not had any problems with spicing, usually we order medium and that's what we get. When we have leftovers wrapped we order extra naan... More
