Really Authentic...

Good friends needed a place to hang out with good makan. We polled and decided on North Indian cuisine.

HGW gave this place high ratings so we decided to give here a try.

I'll agree with the place being authentic as we were the only non-indians for lunch that day and I say it's a good sign that the place is the real deal.

It's buffet style and we went to attack the food as we were so very hungry!! Just as we were at the buffet spread, this very nice waiter told us to not take the naans at the buffet table as he will get hot ones for us. We dutifully just piled our plates with yummy veges and meat dish.

We waited for about 10 mins and it was not the plain naans that he brought out. He gave us choice of butter or garlic naans!! At this point, I was close to tears. I have a thing for butter and garlic naans and even my 3 year-old couldn't hold it in and 'ordered' me to pass her one.

He also brought out a plate of Tandoori Chicken and this other plate of chicken with curry sauce and this spicy vege deep-fried nuggets. We got a little worried as we were wondering if the dishes were chargable as they were not found with the buffet table. The nice waiter assured us that the dishes were included in the buffet price and we dined happily. We requested for Butter Chicken but alas, that would be extra cost so we decided to just be happy and contented with our yummy buffet spread.

 I must say that tho the spread is not very many (about 6 or 7 choices on the buffet table), they make up with taste. You would think that all the spicy dishes will taste the same after a while but it's not true. Each dish has it's own unique spice & taste, which I think it's just amazing.

Not a place that I will patronise every few months but when I need my fix for North Indian food, I know where to go!

Went for the first time to Aangan, and was really disappointed.

Food quality was not good at all. Just adding chillies does not make authentic Indian food.

Buffet always remained empty, not replenished for several minutes, difficult to get even the first serving.

The service was very poor.

Staff was only interested in picking up the dishes, even if a child was eating.

Worst of all experiences...

My next gathering is never going to be at this place.

From an initial look, the food offering at the buffet line do not look daunting in this dimly lit restaurant, but once you start digging, the richness of this food will hit you quick and some of it might get your heart working overtime.

Down to the food, I recommend trying the Fish Methi Masala, which is one of the less thicker curries there and the fish used is good for buffet standards.

The Mutton Roganjosh is another nice curry that goes well with rice. Unfortunately there was no top up so I only had a chance to mop up the left overs.

The Chicken Kadai is also worth a shot, with thick pieces of marinated chicken curry.

There is also a vegetarian section and the Paneer Butter Masala which is a nicely curried cheese.

In conclusion, I found the food pretty good for a buffet standard, and prices were not excessive, although with the thick curries it is not something that I can eat everyday. Service was generally efficient although it is recommended that you speak slowly if you have an accent. I used my Standard Chartered card members got 15% off for lunch.
