Indian Veg fest 

Indian Veg fest 

There are some people who have been regularly eating at this place for much of the 30 years it's been open, serving buffet vegetarian fare every day of the week. If you mention Indian Veg to a northern Londoner, you'll get a good response.

The price for their all-you-can-eat vegetarian Indian buffet (the only thing they do), until recently, was a very conservative £6.50, but increased to £7.95 at the start of 2017 after a refurbishment. If you can get past the pro-veggie propaganda emblazoned on almost every surface area, it's a great spot to get very full for very little.

Walk in and find a table, then pick up a plate and load it with whatever you want from the buffet area. Think poori, daal, rice, pea and paneer, bhajis, pakoras, smashed potato aloo, different types of vegetables curries, different salads, and the rest.

The food is hot and fresh, salads are sprightly, and apart from a couple of sorry-looking pooris that were waiting to get refreshed on one of our three buffet visits (we were hungry), everything tasted very good.

Plus we hear these guys do good things in the community like feeding the homeless; even more reason to give them what little money they're asking for. Note - BYO and cash only.
