Dine out at the new Desi Buffet.
The restaurant and take-away is now under new ownership and offers a great choice of traditional home cooked Indian food, all served in a buffet style banqueting hall, close to the centre of Birkby.
Desi Buffet is now owned by Mr Mohammed Amin, who is well known in the Huddersfield area as he has worked in various local food outlets. In more recent times he has built up local establishments and gained the five star hygiene rating.
His evening buffet is now served seven days a week 4pm to 10.30pm in the extensive buffet hall which can seat 80 people downstairs and 100 in the banqueting hall upstairs.
This is available to hire for parties, business events and even weddings and includes a full catering service from the family-run business. All food is prepared by Desi Buffet's highly experienced chef Mohammed Ramzan who has worked in the food industry all his life.
He started out in 1972 at the Hotel International in Pakistan and following this worked on the QE2, in various restaurants in Bradford and at Xscape in Castleford. The eat-as-much-as-you-like buffet is very reasonably priced at pounds 7.99 for adults per head and pounds 4.99 for children under 10. The takeout menu offers main courses from pounds 6. Always available at the buffet are five starters, two vegetarian main courses, five meat-based main courses, a choice of Naan breads and rice along with a choice of desserts.
Desi Buffet operate a fair use buffet policy. Mr Amin said: "We like people to enjoy an extensive choice of authentic Indian dishes and visit the buffet as many times as they like. All we ask is that they are sensible and do not pile their plates too high and then not eat it.
"We encourage people to take smaller portions but visit the buffet more often, so that food is not wasted.'' All buffet dishes and desserts are cooked fresh daily and there is also a selection of salad and sauces plus chargrilled chicken tikka and seekh kebabs.
The menu includes popular favourites such as kormas, jalfrezis, rogan josh, bhuna, tikka masala and much more.
