My first taste of the Indian food buffet was very pleasurable. The food was light and fragrant, and seemed to have some influences from outside of India (Afghanistan?). The buffet mixed authentic Indian cuisine with American salads and starters, which neatly matched the eclectic feeling of the room. This is, after all, Amaya Bar and Grill, not "Amaya Authentic Indian Restaurant and Spice Bazaar". The bar had a considerable selections of wines and liquors (practically unheard of in a true Indian restaurant), and the decorations were very modern and classy..but not Indian. I like the contrast. You walk in and smell the aroma of Indian food at lunchtime, but the chic ceramic wear, the low light, and the dinner club style lighting make you want to come back after dark for drinks. The servers were beautiful and highly friendly. I had only one criticism. The pakora on the buffet were not accompanied by any kind of dressings (tamarind and mint chutney being the most likely). I have never seen these fried appetizers served without chutneys- whether a la carte or as part of a buffet. I mentioned this to the waitress and she took my suggestion to the kitchen. Within minutes there were 2 bowls under the chafing dish: one with mint chutney, the other with tamarind. I was very pleased with my first experience and immediately joined the loyalty rewards program. I can't wait to come back on a Saturday night and see what kind of chic and sexy people hang out at the bar.
