India Garden has long been rightly famous for its daily lunch buffet, a feast of epic proportions. For just $10.95, the buffet offers dozens of dishes off the menu, and does so in a modest but lovely restaurant on the Lakewood and Rocky River border. Whether it's at the lunch buffet or during regular dinner service, vegan, vegetarian and meat-eating diners are bound to fall in love with something on the wide-ranging menu that focuses mainly on dishes from Northern India. Start with some crispy pakora, move on to savory shrimp curry with nann, and don't leave out the fluffy and intoxicating vegetable biryani. There's always more to explore at India Garden.
