Restaurant Review: New India Buffet + Bar & Restaurant.

New India Buffet boasts a wide range of dishes featuring both meat and vegetarian options.

New India Buffet is smaller's selection was extensive, featuring different curries and a salad bar to go with the nearly two full sections of savoury items and decent dessert options. Seating was plentiful including a patio up front.

The Naan, Basmati Rice, Papadum, Tandoori Chicken, Aloo Gobi, Lamb Curry and Butter Chicken was well-charred. The naan was soft and had some good elasticity. I would've preferred made-to-order though. The butter chicken was flavourful with tang and spiciness and creaminess. The curry lamb had layers of flavour.

Of the Oven Baked Veggies, Palak Paneer, Fish Curry, Chicken Curry and Beef Keema, the chicken curry was my favourite as it had hits of sweet spice and gingery notes. The fish curry had a mild spicy sauce. The beef keema had more tomato and garlic than the beef, but was tender and tasty. The Egg Curry was delicious. The chickpeas were tender but not mushy. Lots of sweetness from the onion combined with spice. The lentils also had a big hit of cumin and spiciness. The tava veggies were balanced with creamy tanginess.

For dessert, I had Saffron Sweet Rice, Carrot Halwa, Gulab Jamun, Sooji Kalwa, Fruit, Jello and Kheer. I'm not a fan of these of desserts since they are usually so sweet. However, other than the gulab jamun, the rest weren't too extreme. I particularly enjoyed the saffron rice. Overall, I was surprised at the selection and overall quality of the food at New India Buffet. For the price, it is a good and cheaper alternative to Tandoori Flame if you want to stay in Vancouver.
