Mr. Curry's Buffet Express

When lunchtime diners walk into Mr. Curry's Buffet Express on Olive Street downtown, they have only two choices to concern themselves with before paying their bill: dining in or to go. Behind the cashier awaits a row of all-you-can-eat (or fit into your Styrofoam carryout container) Indian dishes and items. Daily dining options include red and tender tandoori chicken, vegetable korma and Indian-style spicy, creamy scrambled eggs. Diners can also pair their meal with regular naan bread, crispy pappadam chips, basmati rice or vegetable biriyani (like fried rice, just not fried) and an array of yogurts, spices and chutneys. Their weekly rotating menu items include various lamb, chicken and vegetarian items, such as chicken curry, lamb vindaloo and the spicy potato and spinach aloo sag. Each day offers at least three meat selections and three vegetarian, which become vegan entrees on Tuesdays. Diners can end their meal with a cold mango lassi smoothie or seasoned rice pudding, and of course a few fennel seeds for fresh breath. Mr. Curry's is only open for lunch.
