Best Indian Food I've Eaten! Feb 22, 2014
Go for the curry buffet on the weekend. It's $30 per person, but all you can eat. They don't use anything to make the dishes the unnatural reddish color that are frequent in most Indian restaurants in the U.S. I'm not usually one for lamb curry, but it was really good...with just enough of a bite to let you know they used a pepper of some sort, but not too much to ruin the dish. I also really liked the vegetable jalfrezi. The kheer was also delicious...thick, creamy and with fruit in it...not really thin like most places.
Fill your belly, then look around at the decor while you finish your meal with chai (or a cocktail).
Note - save your money by skipping high tea at the Empress (twice the price) and do the buffet at the Bengal Lounge instead!
