Location Description:

Looking for companionship at lunch? Try these magic words: "Anybody wanna go to House of India?" Within seconds you'll be surrounded by friends and coworkers, all of them near-crazed at the thought of H of I's awesome $6.95 lunch buffet: the piles of chewy, fluffy naan! The fragrant pilau topped with vegetable korma or spicy chicken tikka masala! The veggie samosas, so crunchy-perfect; the smoky, falling-off-the-bone-tender tandoori chicken. The cups of cardamom-kissed chai, the soft bhangra music, the super-helpful (but never intrusive) service. Dinner's great, too.
