I eaten here countless times, and each time I am convinced that this is the best restaurant I've beent to. The service is unbelievable. From the moment you walk in, chef and owner Uday is right there to greet you, and if he knows you, he comes out to hug and welcome you as if you are his personal guest at his house! The food is amazing. Go with the buffet for lunch. Each day he has something different, but no matter what it is, it's amazing. His chutneys range from spicy, to head exploding hot. He makes the most amazing deserts. His carrot pudding is one of the most delicious things I've ever eaten. Best restaurant in Lynchburg, hands down.

You can't beat Hot & Cold for Chef Uday's buffet. Everything on it is delicious. The homemade mango pudding with fruit is to die for. On Saturdays, he has soup and baklava, too. And his regular menu is pretty darned good, as well.

And best of all, Uday is one of the nicest people you could ever meet.

Stop by. You'll be back again and again.

The food was about the best we've ever had. Homemade hummus and the Keer were outstanding. Friendly, gracious owner/chef. Next time we're in Lynchburg we're going to get there in time for the lunch buffet so we can sample more of the delicious cuisine! Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

Nice little hidden Indian/mediteranean restaurant. On 9th st and Main (1/2 block above Main) in Lynchburg. They have a daily buffet that is only 7.99. It might be a buck higher on Saturday. All fresh foods, you can chat with the owner as you eat. Very good indian options, also mediterranean hummus and pita, great value and high quality. very friendly people.

We had an excellent late lunch at Hot and Cold Cafe on a Tuesday afternoon. The owner was very charming and helpful. We started off with his homemade hummus which was great. I had a spinach/lamb dish that was wonderful. My wife got the black and white wrap also great. The baklava was yummy, but we had to take it back to our bed and breakfast for later. Don't miss this downtown restaurant.
