My wife and I had dinner here last October. We were impressed by the food and service, and gave a good review. We've since been back for dinner, and they've maintained a very high level of quality.
However, we don't normally come here for lunch. No particular reason.
Today we were visited by a friend who no longer lives in the area, who remembered this restaurant from years ago (when it was called something else). He suggested that we have lunch there.
Glad we did.
Buffet meals can often feel second-rate, particularly in Indian restaurants, where the buffet dishes tend to be bland, to address the lunch crowd, and the selection can be limited. Mumbai Times didn't fall into either of these traps: sure, there were no Vindaloos, but the dishes were spicy and appetizing. The selection was extensive - including vegetarian dishes, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka marsala, and a rather nice spicy lamb dish whose name escapes me. The food was excellent: the same quality as the dinner menu.
Much to our delight, the waiter brought round an endless supply of freshly-baked Naans. This is far better than the usual tired little heap of warmed-up bread that one often finds in a buffet. He also kept a close eye on our plates, clearing them away when we were ready for another helping.
The price included a beverage. We had wine. Both red and white were perfectly acceptable, and were served in generous portions.
And here's the amazing thing - it cost us $10.95 per head. That's less than a glass of Bordeaux in most places. I don't know how they do it, but I'm very glad they do. We'll be back.
