We dined here for dinner and had impeccable service from the two owners: Uday and Temby: a fantastic husband and wife team. They love what they do and enjoy sharing conversation and their delicious and organic food with their customers. There were three of us and we shared starters of Hummus, Baba Ghanoush and Tabouli. We then ordered a Petra Gyro; Chana Masala and Mixed Vegetable Korma. For dessert, we had to try their Walnut, Chocolate and Pistachio Baklava and their vegan ice-cream... all delicious! Prices also reasonable. A must visit if you're in Lynchburg!

I ate here for lunch and was impressed with the joyful service of Uday. His Mediterranean and Indian cooking is phenomenal! Everything is homemade with quality you can taste.

Delicious food in Historic Downtown Lynchburg, VA. A mixed offering of Indian and Mediterranean dishes to choose from. The owner/baavarche and his wife are so pleasant. It's a wonderful family-owned business. None of the selections are too spicy. The baklava is the best I've had. It is one of our favorite restaurants and we will always visit when we are in Lynchburg!

Delicious lunch takeout & friendly staff. I stopped in to get lunch for my family. We got a chicken wrap, falafel, hummus & tabbouleh, some baba ganoush, etc. the owners were very friendly and I enjoyed reading about them as I waited. The owner made sure to package everything “just so” and took care of a lot of little details. The hot sauce was a little too spicy for my husband, which was a surprise. The falafel and tabbouleh were very salty, and a little dry, but overall it was yummy. The kids had a mango lassi which they loved. The best part was the baklava. I tried both the pistachio and walnut. Both were great.

We enjoyed a very tasty mix of Indian and Mediterranean food. The chana masala and the aloo gobi were perfect, as were the hummus and baba ganoush. We would definitely come back for the food, even though the communication with the owners was a bit awkward.

There is a fairy inexpensive lunch buffet at $8.99 which includes dessert. The food was good, nothing spicy and a good variety. My only complaint was that the many dishes tasted a lot alike. The owner is hard working, eager to make you exactly what you want and I have gone there twice now.

Thank you for your review! We always strive for great quality. The food on the buffet is very mild and if you would like it spicy, you need to add Chef Uday's amazing onion chutney. Please try it next time you are in. We look forward to serving you soon!

Prefer sit down full service menu rather than limited luncheon buffet. Great lamb curry. Wife enjoyed her meal as well. Attentive owner, pleasant environment.

I visited Hot & Cold Cafe for lunch with my daughter. This was our first experience going to a restaurant that served Indian Food as well as Mediterranean. We thoroughly enjoyed all of the dished that we tried and the owner and his wife really made the experience special! I would highly recommend trying Hot & Cold Cafe for yourself.

We went with a friend and shared three different dishes. Each was custom made by the owner for us and all were delicious! The new location on Main Street is much better and parking is much easier with the marketplace lot across the street. Any level of spiciness is available so do not hesitate to be adventurous! Owner and wife are really wonderful people and very friendly.

My husband had been eager to go here. So, yesterday, we went for the buffet which was called "Indian." Let me say first that perhaps the Mediterranean options from the menu may be of better, but I can only comment on the Indian buffet. The place was busy and the cook was juggling answering the phone and other duties along with cooking--and that may have been some of the problem with the food--but not all. First, most things were out at 12:00 noon. The chicken was finely chopped with a one-note spice and no real sauce. The okra dish had no seasoning including no salt. The vegetable korma was a bunch of frozen veggies tossed with a little Indian spice. The vegetable biryani was really strange and contained uncooked dried beans--at first I thought I was biting into peanuts. The white rice was really lumpy. The raita, which should be tangy, was really sweet and very thin. I cook Indian food, do it very well and been doing it for over 35 years. I simply love it. It not a really easy cuisine to master. Flavors are complex and must be built. Correctly made, it is out of this world. You can't throw a few Indian spices in something and call it Indian. I have eaten Indian food all over the world, including London and New York. This is not Indian food. Unfortunately, though, there are not a lot of good Indian restaurants in this area. There is a fairly good buffet in Charlottesville: Madaraga is good and the only one I've tried there. Taaza in Roanoke used to be really good but is not nearly as good the last time I was there--a few months ago. Nawab on the Market is also good. Neither are great. The best Indian food around central VA: Get yourself a MadhurJaffrey Indian cookbook or other well known Indian cookbook writers, buy the spices you need (some are similar to Mexican and other Asian cuisine spices). Read and follow her well-explained techniques and cook it yourself!!! Or easier yet: Buy a jar of premade sauces from your local Kroger store made by Pataks or Sharwood in the International secion and make your own. That makes it easy and a lot better than a bad Indian buffet.

Hot and Cold has delicious, authentic cuisine! I eat vegan and it's wonderful to be able to enjoy the lunch buffet along with my meat-eating friends! There truly is something for everyone, and it's all delicious!

On the plus side...the food was delishious! Fresh, excellent flavors. The negative...such small portions for the price...main meals were appetizer portions. Very little meat but lots of rice and pita. We left still hungry. Service was also very slow.

Decided to stop in while running errands in Lynchburg. I had the buffet and my partner had the Petro (lamb wrap wth hummus and a spicy sauce). Everything was very good. Other diners were eager to make recommendations. The owner was checking to make sure his patrons were pleased with their food.
