India Palace Restaurant Restaurant Review: If it weren’t for the fact that most Indian food seems to hold well over steam, we’d be just as happy to see buffets banished; they’re often nothing more than exercises in mediocrity. Nevertheless, India Palace’s siren song of steam and samosas manages to seduce diners at all hours, and many of the buffet items sampled are perfectly fine in the pretty-in-pink digs. Yet straight from the kitchen, flaky fish tandoori, served sizzling and spitting on a cast-iron platter, flaunts its yogurt-and-spice crust, while chicken, shrimp or lamb vindaloo preparations beguile Indian initiates. Goat finds its way into a regal biryani. For the more cautious palate, consider the paneer butter masala or perhaps one of the many vegetarian dishes, such as okra bhindi masala or chana masala with spicy garbanzo beans. A dish of frozen mango malwa caps a meal nicely. Avoid the pallid pistachio ice cream, however.
