***Update: Since this post was written, the price of this Buffet has gone up to $10.95***
One thing I’ve discovered since starting Midtown Lunch is that most of the time you get what you pay for. Go to an Indian buffet that’s $9.95 and the quality of the food is not going to be as good as the $14.95 buffet. Rangole (on 46th btw. 5+6th) was the best deal ever at $8.95, but the quality was a little lacking, and the atmosphere left a little to be desired. And yet, I love the all you can eat buffets, so I was happy the place was there when I needed my fix.
When Rangole closed, I was forced to look south to Curry Dream on 38th btw. 5+6th. $1 more than Rangole, it still suffers from many of the same problems. Good, but not great, clean, but not really… and still, I am just happy it’s there. (Fat man likey buffet.) I could pay $10.95 for Sukhadia or even more for one of the expensive Indian Buffets in Midtown (there are plenty, like Utsav), but it is against the under $10 Midtown Lunch rule (read: I’m a cheap bastard, and will sacrifice quality for price).
With the opening of Spice Fusion on 8th Ave. btw. 47+48th, all of my Indian food prayers have been answered. Not only is the buffet only $9.95, they have take out boxes for $6.95 and the food is not only good, it is borderline great!
What they have, and a +/- after the jump… Read more »
