We’ve had Indian food cravings for a while so a few weeks ago we paid a visit to Ashoka. The lunch buffet is a pretty good deal and offers quite a few different items. Ashoka isn’t necessarily our favorite place to eat Indian food, but it’s nearby and lunch is served until 4pm.
There are quite a few Indian restaurants nearby, including several in the same plaza. In fact our car was covered in flyers after we got out. Next time we have Indian food cravings, I’m determined to explore some other restaurant offerings in the area. If you have any good suggestions let me know.
On this sunny afternoon, I was excited to see both lamb and goat offered. However, both the lamb and goat barely had any flavor. They both tasted more like beef. I don’t ever remember the names of most of the dishes. I just get a little of everything.
The buffet also comes with complimentary garlic naan. The naan here is very thick and fluffy. Better than the homemade naan I attempted a few weeks ago. It is also very filling. Especially if you eat the entire basket.
Writing this post, I just realized this is the third time I’m blogging about this place. Definitely time to explore some new restaurants. You can read my previous posts here and here.
