This place was recommended to me by a lot of friends and colleagues and finally got to try it out yesterday. Totally loved the ambiance which has very Asian look and feel completed by a substantial amount of Asian crowd that turns up here everyday! First Impression: They have an amazing buffet spread replete with variety. Everything looked so appetizing but sadly you need a couple of trips to try out all their dishes unless you are blessed with a great appetite. There were two options for soup- tom yum and chicken lung fung. I tried out the latter which was quite good. Their lemon iced tea was one of the best I have had so far.
For starters we tried out shanghai paneer, garlic bread, pepper chicken, fish, chilly potatoes, ice berg chicken, chicken wings, prawns chips, fried prawns, cheesy prawns, crsipy corn dish, mushrooms, veg suimai and steamed chicken dumplings and loved most of the dishes. Really liked the sashimi and sushi was decent. I did not actually know how to go about the wasabi so make sure you do not have too much of it. By the time we finished off the starters and tasted some salads like russian, sesame chicken and cold chicken pasta we were so stuffed that we had no space left for main course. Still i had a bite of noodles which tasted good. For deserts we tried out tiramisu, butterscotch cake, mud cake and dark chocolate ice cream all which were fantastic.
And amazing part is this is unlimited with only 645 indian rupess almost 12 US$.
Love the food and the ambiance. Would definitely like to keep going back to satiate my Asian good cravings
I recommend this being the best Innovative buffet in town. Recommended

Be sure to order the Pomfret Malgudi to start your meal with.
It also provides an excellent ambience to eat in. It is a small restaurant, 85 covers, a mezzanine included, a lot of polished wood and glass, square tables, straight-back chairs, neat table mats, a well-stocked bar, trained service, a mirror on which the day's specials are chalked.
Directions -You go a little further down Flora Fountain, towards the university, and enter the first lane on the left, near Kandeel restaurant and opposite the Grindlays Bank. Turn left at the end of the lane and immediately enter the small lane on the right. That is Tamarind Lane and Ankur is there.
Favorite Dish: The language is Tulu, kori means chicken, rooti stands for the crisp roti. It is a pretty hot curry, a little thick, almost like a gassi. A portion, priced at Rs.125, is made up of a large bowl of the curry, with four to five substantial pieces of the chicken, plus a basket piled with the roottis. You pick up a rootti, crumble it (not powder, but flat pieces) with your hand, put it in the plate, then ask the waiter to pour the curry and chicken on top of it. I prefer a lot of curry on top, to soak into the rootti and make it soft. And this is one dish you have to eat with hand. Don't worry, the restaurant provides finger bowls.
Trattoria is the the five star hotel President's Italian restaurant. Open at all times of the day (and night) it has long been one of the city's most pleasant places for a late-late dinner. Long time Bombayites will complain that since the only comparison is with all-night roadside eateries, this is not much of a recommendation. To mollify such critics-- even during peak dinner hours Trattoria is a good choice.
Favorite Dish: Good pasta is rare in Bombay. It would have been non-existent but for this restaurant. Try a fusili with chicken, cannelloni stuffed with cheese and spinach and (really gorging!) a gnocchi with lamb. All three are excellent. A glance at the menu shows that each kind of pasta comes in two recipes-- one vegetarian, the other not
The Khyber is a great restaurant located in downtown Mumbai.
The atmosphere is fantastic and the food is a really great blend of northern through to southern Indian dishes.
