This converted Pizza Hut barely resembles its former checkered-tablecloth self with a completely remodeled interior that includes murals of the Taj Mahal, vases and henna-covered hands. The buffet takes up most of the back wall with the all-you-can-eat staples (salad, fresh fruit and desserts) on one side and the heated Indian dishes to the right of the cash register. The selection varies by day but always includes naan (flat bread) and spicy rice. Other options include curried vegetables, chickpeas in sauce, creamed spinach, battered and fried potatoes and tandoori chicken. It's a chance to sample some of the dishes served on the full menu in dinner portions.
