“great indo-pakistani buffet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 October 2008

The lunch buffet for 16,500 Won has a great variety and excellent food. The naan here is soft and doughy. Serves hummus, 2 different kinds of rice, salads, 2 chicken dishes, 1 lamb or mutton dish, chick peas, dal, veggies, samosa, pakora. 2 or 3 kinds of dessert including dates and something i never tried before call sampapi which was really nice; something like a sugary powder cake that crumbles in your mouth. i tried other indian buffets in itaewon (only 2 or 3 others in total) and this is the best. besides a great variety, the food is excellently spiced; neither bland nor overly peppery hot; just right.

Respected Customer,
Thank you very much for your nice and true comments. One thing I would like to add for your kind information is about the thing you said you tried here for first time, you called it "sampapi" which is actually "Soanpapdi" and is one of the most special sweet dishes of South Asia. Anyways,once again our team is very much thankful to you for your review. Looking forward "with lots of services" to see you again.

Best Regards

Foreign Restaurant,
