Mayuri Indian Cuisine Restaurant Review

: Dozens of diners line up for the midday meal, passing along the steam table to select assorted North and South Indian specialties, from tandoori chicken to a spicy rasam, the traditional light palate-cleanser soup that precedes many South Indian meals. But you might consider the menu as well, with its lamb vindaloo, tandoori dishes, and hearty rice-based biryanis. The menu, like the buffet itself, meshes North and South dishes and flavors, so if you are a newcomer to the cuisine, sample a masala dosa (a wrapped pancake) and pair that with a piping-hot grilled lamb kebab dish. Kids are not forgotten, though why on earth any would select chicken fingers with so many wonders at their disposal is a mystery. Desserts are few, but include the expected mango kulfi and ras malai.
