always a good idea to get the buffet. That way, you can sample some of
everything. If you decide to forgo all-you-can-eat gluttony, order from
the tandoori section of the menu: marinated shrimp or lamb marinated in
yogurt and spices.

newer buffet stop serves some of the best clay-pot naan in town. But
that’s hardly the only thing Heritage has to offer. Try the chicken
lollipop or goan lamb vindaloo, chunks of lamb served in a spicy curry

buffet has kormas and biryanis, along with soups, naan and a few
desserts. If you order off menu, try the beef achar, tender chunks of
tenderloin in a spicy fenu-greek sauce, or its potato bhaji, a spicy
blend of traditional seasonings and potatoes.

The lunch buffet always includes appetizers, fruits, soup, several rices and entrees. For

buffet is always the best option. After all, why choose between which
masala you’d like or if you want to try the goat curry or beef kadai,
sauteed beef, onions and bell peppers? And no one will bat a lash if you
try all the desserts.
