Rewind 3

Sunday was dinogrl's birthday, and we all went up to Bombay Garden in Newark for a bit of dinner. Indian buffet is definitely vegetarian-friendly, so for once Spring wasn't foraging for the rare good vegetarian dish.

Service was crap. I think they expected us to hunt the wild waiter with a tranquilizer gun.

Food was amazing. With the prevalence of stewed dishes, Indian holds up very well to being served from a steam table. About half the selections were vegetarian, or at least ovo-lacto vegetarian (yoghurt and eggs are a regular staple). They did a great mango lassi, even if we had to dart a waiter to get some. Naan was excellent, but we had to dart another waiter to get it. Getting a bottle of sparkling wine was even more difficult, and the waiter couldn't open the bottle (so dave_gallaher had to).

I don't think I'd ever eat off the menu there (probably starve first) but I would definitely consider eating from the buffet at the new one that just opened in Santa Clara.

I've been to both the Newark one (it was a favorite work-lunch destination) and the one in Santa Clara. The buffets are pretty much the same, so I'd recommend whichever one is closer.

Santa Clara Location?
Did someone say BASFA outing????

(Oh. I did.)

Usually the service is better, although wild waiters at least were loping through the old Bobby's.

And it was just a dinner.
