Hello $10 Lunch Buffet
Bye Bye 4fourteen, Hello Don't Tell Aunty looking very colourful with the ultramarine seating. The $10 Lunch Buffet advertised on the outside chalkboard was the first attraction for me. Keep in mind it's not exactly a 'buffet' as in all-you-can-eat for $10 but you can put as much on your large plate as you're willing to eat without wastage. If you need more then it's an extra $10 I believe. I managed to get a bit of all 7 curries on offer with a good amount of rice in the middle of my plate and some of the sides, relishes and raita. My tip would be to make sure you put enough rice to start. There's nothing worse than running out of rice for your curries on the plate. Pappadums were included but could benefit from being more crisp. I suspect they might have been prepared too far in advance and have lost some of their lovely texture as well as those colourful fun cheezel looking tubes. But for $10 it's great value for the variety and flavour and a great concept for the lunchtime locals as a cheap eat. Make sure you get some of that red lime pickles you see in the middle of my plate for some extra flavour kick and chilli heat. Service was friendly and welcoming. Decor pretty cool with lots of natural light and colourful surrounds. There's also a self service wine bottle fridge. So if in need of another bottle of wine. Just go up and get one for your table. It's like a liquor shop with dining tables hehe. I spy wine prices range from $48 to $190 per bottle.
