If you ever have a hankering for some good Indian food, this is the place to go. Their high-quality buffet is also a great starting place for people that have always wanted to try Indian food but never knew where to start. Oh, and their customer service is off the charts, truly!
How We See It
A Closer Look
Taste: Since going to my first Indian buffet with Kyle in Rochester (NY), I have been a big fan of this category of cuisine. The homey feel of the restaurants, the unique spices and textures of their food, Indian eating is truly one of a kind. When we moved to Kansas City in 2007, we were on a hunt to find our “go-to” place for fresh naan and tasty curries and these people really have the flavors just right.
Presentation: All the curries are made with fresh ingredients and have a wide variety of bright colors. They take a lot of care in your dining experience as well and keep things clean and fresh. They pay close attention to detail and it just makes the entire experience more delightful.
Originality: Nothing too original here, except that they stay true to fine Indian food.
Service: Korma Sutra has been by far one of the best customer service experiences I have ever had. They are also great when you bring kids, too. Both my boys got a balloon and when my baby girl came, the owner wrote her a “welcome to Korma Sutra” note. On a different visit, the owner’s wife noticed that I didn’t get to eat much food because I was tending to the kids. She offered to box up a freshly made version of my entree to eat when I got home so that I could have a hot meal. Who does that? These people impress me and keep us coming back for more!
Appearance: This place is in a pretty small space but they have lots of bright colorful tapestries and decor to give it an authentic feel. Be careful if you go during their lunch rush, it can get quite crowded.
Value: Dinner entrees run at about $13 each and the lunch buffet is $9. There are also lots of free add-ons that they spontaneously give you like free naan “refills” (it also comes complimentary with any tandoori dish), and sometimes you can score a free dessert or chai. I guess it just depends on what they have extra that day but we have always left with our money well spent.
Restrooms: One-room only, but clean and cheerful.
