Indian cuisine is my favorite food introduced to me by my many Indian friends. I have eaten at hundreds of Indian restaurants including a visit to Curry Valley last summer. When we visited last summer while on vacation everything was top notch. When we made our visit this year we noticed there was a big sign out front that said "BUFFET" and we suspected things had gone down hill but we went in anyway. There were only two other people there so I went over and glanced at the buffet which was nearly empty and looked like the stuff had been out for a while. We decided we would order fresh off the menu to avoid the whole buffet deal. I ordered Lamb Vindaloo and my wife wanted chicken tikka masala. The owner came over to take our order which he did for my Lamb but insisted the Chicken Tikka was already on the buffet. My wife asked if there would be more brought out to the buffet and the owner replied yes. My wife went ahead and got her plate from the bufett and had had some samosas while I waited for my dish to be brought out. When the samosas were brought out I asked for some mint chutney and tamarind sauce which is traditionally served with samosas. The owner then proceeds to tell me to go and get it off the buffet. So I order off the menu, there are only two other patrons in here but I have to get up and go get my own condiments?? When I finally got down to eating my long awaited samosas I did notice that there were some of the best I had ever eaten. I cant really say that for the Lamb Vindaloo though. There were about 5-6 very small pieces of meat in a bowl of red sauce with a few potatoes floating around. The meat was tough and flavorless and the sauce was just plain strange. Even after my wife asked again for more food to be brought out to the buffet, none was ever brought out. Out of everything the best things we had here were the samosas, bread basket, and the aloo papri chaat. When we got the bill for all of this my wife almost passed out. I would never visit this place again.
