We stuffed ourselves to the brink. Then we went back for more. And then we ate dessert, and chai -- which was almost right, but not quite -- and requested a wheelbarrow deposit us at our car. On the way out, the owner informed us that Friday nights are Indo-Chinese buffet nights.
Oh Lord, here we go again.
I do have to mention that I had pretty offensive indigestion (I'll spare you the details) that evening and into the next day. The Boy, on the other hand, had few complaints (he who has never been to India and just started eating Indian food when he met me....sheesh.) But it won't keep me from going back.
So, if you're in the neighborhood, give this hidden gem a try. I recommend it. I wouldn't recommend the book though, (Passage to India, by E.M. Forster). I remember hating it in school.
