Very nice
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2012 - 2:29pm [Dine in]

Four of us, one vegetarian, had the buffet and we all loved it. The naan was amazing, the butter chicken had big pieces of white meat in a delicious sauce, the veggie curries were excellent, especially the pakora in a yoghurt sauce. The chicken vindaloo was fairly mild, and everything was just about the right level of spiciness and also hot and plentiful, frequently replenished. The desserts were nice, and the selection of sweets to buy separately was really good.. The only thing that wasn't wonderful was the lassi, and that was not too bad. The service was fine; nobody harassing you to buy more, but always there if you needed them, even though the place was full. The washrooms were clean and seemed like those in any other restaurant. The decor is a bit diner-like, but what do you expect in an all-you-can-eat buffet, especially one with such reasonable prices? It seemed appropriate, and everything was clean and tidy. We all enjoyed ourselves and we'll be going back.

Excellent food - and everything else was good too.

After reading the terrible reviews, we were rather hesitant about going there, but there was no need to be. We went with friends for lunch on Saturday, four people in all, and had a wonderful meal. One of us is vegetarian and another (me) is a newbie to sushi, so we went for Vegetable dragon roll, Mango avocado roll, Unagi roll, and Tuna and avocado roll. After that lot disappeared in record time, we had Salmon roll, Yam tempura and Vege tempura. This was actually more food than four people needed, but it was all so good that we ate every last scrap of it.

The waitress was charming and efficient, and the bill was a really pleasant surprise. All that excellent food plus some particularly fragrant tea cost under $40, including taxes. The washrooms were clean and looked as if they had been recently renovated, the banquette seating was comfortable, and nobody was hurrying us to eat up and leave, although they were quite busy.

If you're looking for a fancy upscale restaurant with prices to match, this isn't it. But if you want wonderful food in a very pleasant setting at amazing prices, try Britannia Sushi.

We'll be going there again soon and often. We intend to work our way through the whole menu.
