Well both thought it would be a good idea to expose our kids to different types of ethic foods. The first place that came to my mind was a little hole-in-the-wall place in a strip mall near by called Best of India. I like the idea of the buffet for the kids. That way they can look at the food to see what they want to try, then go back and try something else.
The lunch buffet wasn’t very expensive.
This is a small place. The staff was really nice and asked us a few times if the kids were having fun and liked items they were serving.
Just about everything that I tried was really good. I can’t complain about any of the food to much. Some of it was a little dry, but for the most part the manager made sure everything was fresh on the buffet.
However, the only thing that kinda turned me off to this place is that the buffer was located in the far back kinda in the kitchen/cleaning area,but understand that this is a small place. Also the buffet is very small; not a lot of items to choose from. However, the manager noticed that Jason got a couple of helpings of mango pudding and he said that he made it himself. I have to admit, the mango pudding was very tasty.
Overall I give this place only 2 out of 5 pants off.
I just wasn’t really impressed.
I dig Indian food. That probably comes from spending six years working for an Indian immigrant who liked to throw parties at his house and serve Indian food.
I also like forcing my kids to try new food.
That combination led us to Best of India in the TexaTonka neighborhood of St. Louis Park.
The place is small; it probably seats 25 people. With so little room, they set up the buffet in the kitchen, which is weird. And the buffet is small, though the food was good. The naan was great. The mango pudding was wonderful.
Side note: I love mango pudding, and the formerly-best-place-to-get-it started making it out of a box or something nasty, so I hadn’t had any in a while.
The food was good, and cheap. I like that combination. One of my kids was a brat and only ate naan, which was irritating.
No dancing girls, which was expected.
I give it 3 out of 5 pants off.
