IC: Good sauce, good food, good service
By Jules Gollner
EDITOR's NOTE - Jules Gollner is the owner of White Apron and appreciates the fine art of a professionally run restaurant.
I have been frequenting Indian Cuisine on SW 34th St. for 4 or 5 years. Each visit is better than the last. The restaurant space is clean and neat, and the service is excellent.
It seems that a group of regular customers frequent the restaurant. Most everyone who comes in knows the lunch time drill: They grab a table and then go to the buffet and grab a plate. Fresh plates are suggested for each subsequent buffet visit, please!
I usually make a plate of Raita sauce (photo right, large bowl) and (in small bowls, left to right) cilantro chutney, tamarind sauce, pickled onions, and cucumbers. This is my 'sauce plate' to accompany my naan bread and entrée.
My favorite dish is the Butter Chicken or the Chick Peas with Tomato.
Another dish I am fond of is the Sauteed Cabbage - it has a little kick to it. Many other vegetarian options are available also, such as pakoora, a deep fried onion and potato fritter.
The basmati rice is perfect each time every time I visit Indian Cuisine, and if the naan bread ever runs out, the waiters will visit your table with a fresh batch in minutes. Soup is available each day. The Indian Cuisine menu is available at the restaurant web link below this feature.
The Indian Cuisine lunch buffet runs $ 8.99, a bargain these days. If you choose from the menu, service is very attentive, with plates being whisked away and glasses being re-filled very quickly.
You might call before you head over for lunch, as there have been a few times I have found them closed for the day with no warning.
