Harvest of India

February 2005 Dirt Cheap Eats

Dinner prices at this relaxed spot aren't dirt cheap. But the lunch buffet–$8.95 on weekdays, $9.95 on weekends–is a deal. The offerings change daily.

We found tasty batata wada fried potato cakes, chicken tandoori, shrimp kolhapuri in a tomato-base sauce, and creamy chicken xcuti in coconut-vinegar sauce. Naan is hot, fluffy, and perfect for dipping into sauces. Finish off with a kheer rice pudding, flavored with raisins and pistachios.
