Govinda’s has got a restaurant, gift shop, and museum all in one here. Their all-you-can-eat buffet is only $7 and the proceeds go to maintaining the temple, so it’s for a good cause. If that’s not enough reason to try their buffet, their delicious food and constantly changing menu are two more reasons. They’ve got the week’s menu posted online, so you can see what’s on the menu before you go.
They’ve got a special on Sunday where customers can eat the food that has been prepared in their Deity’s Kitchen. Rice, Indian lentil soup, Chutney, Halava and other Indian dishes are on the menu. If you’re looking for some American food, they got that as well. They have a sandwich bar and even pizza.
The prices are fantastic and their mission is great, it’s all for a good cause. It’s vegetarian as well, so you know it’s got to be good for you as well. They treat their employees and customers well. You can even read a bit about the employees on their website. Definitely a five star restaurant.

If you’re tired of the same Asian cuisine, then you’ve got to try eating Tibet Nepal House. Authentic food and great service makes this restaurant stand out among the rest. At $9, the lunch buffet offers the perfect chance to try out the various dishes and not have to worry about expenses. The food is similar to Indian food, but not as spicy. The lunch buffet has about five dishes, as well as sides such as rice, pita bread, and veggies.
The restaurant is super small, so don’t go with a large party. Your best bet is to get it to go. The décor is pretty zen-like with a Buddha and water fountain to add to the experience. Vegetarians will enjoy this place as they’ll have lots of options to choose from. Like the lunch buffet, the rest of the menu has reasonable prices, you’ll eat well and have enough left over to go to a movie afterward.
Their website offer five pages of photos and explanations of the dishes, so you can choose what you want before you go. The Aloo Achaar, which is potato with spices, is delicious and filling. They’ve got lamb, seafood, chicken, and even goat meat to choose from. Their Nariwal Jhinge Machha at $15 is a bit expensive, but if you consider that it’s shrimp with coconut milk and spices, it’s a steal.

Indian food, fit for vegetarians and a buffet with loads of dishes to choose from is what you get when you go to India’s Tandoori. Located at 4850 W Rosecrans Ave this restaurant is warm and inviting. The décor is wonderful complete with beautiful Indian art. The rich aroma of Indian spices and curries will hit you once you walk in the door. Despite being a buffet, the service great and the staff will make sure you’re happy with your order.
The prices definitely won’t break the bank, but if you’re looking to save a bit more, comb your mail for coupons. The buffet itself is a bargain at about 10 bucks a person with a variety of hot dishes, salad, dessert and samosas. Keep in mind that as an Indian restaurant, many of the dishes are spicy, so if you don’t like spicy food, you’re probably better off just ordering a dish and asking them to make it mild.
Some of their specialities are the Saag Paneer which is a rich blend of spinach and cheese, The Tandorri Chicken, and the sweet pistachio yogurt. And of course, you can’t forget the samosas and naan, which are warm and delicious. Prices are mid-ranged for the dishes, but the buffet is a perfect way to save and have a wonderful Indian meal.
