The Sunday lunch buffet was very popular at The Chutney Mary, when it was located at this gorgeous Kings Road venue. Once it moved to Mayfair, Masala Grill took its place and started its own tradition of a Sunday buffet.
From the minute you walk down the stairs to the restaurant, you are met with an expansive table filled with so many different types of starters, mains and salads. On the far corner is a dessert table with a fantastic variety.
We had a table in the outside conservatory area and it was such a lovely bright day that the room was lit up with sunshine. The decor throughout the restaurant is stunning. I love the use of colours and it is very stylish and vibrant.
To start with, I went for a lassi and Amit went for an Americano, which is a cocktail of sweet vermouth, campari and soda.
Both were delicious and refreshing and it felt a little like a holiday, as the room was so bright. The sunshine makes everything happy!
The restaurant was really busy and it seemed like there were some regulars too. The menu changes every week which is nice as if you do visit regularly you always get something different to try.
The food was sectioned into cold snacks, hot snacks, mains and dessert. The Sunday lunch is priced at £26 per person, which I thought was a really good price for the amount of food you can eat.
We tried a little bit of everything and favourites were the Aloo Papdi Chat, Chicken 65, Uttapam with Sambhar, Methi aloo, Kadhai gobhi and the Lasooni dal. Everything else was also very tasty and flavoursome.
For dessert we tried the Gulab Jamun, Mango Shrikhand and Tiramisu.
The food was so good but we were so full in the end! Its a good thing it was a Sunday so we could have a lazy afternoon.
There is such a good selection of food and it caters for vegetarians as much as non-vegetarians. I would definitely go again and actually slightly liked it better than dinner time as you could try so many different things. The curries available were so different to what you find on a normal buffet at an Indian restaurant and are so authentic in taste.
I would really recommend going to try the Sunday lunch buffet! The surroundings are beautiful and the food is excellent. The service is amazing and if you have any questions about the food, the staff are very helpful and always check up on you to see if you need anything without being intrusive.
