What used to be called Bawarchi is now Zaffran Pot, and under a new management. I have commented elsewhere on the selection of Indian cuisine that Culver city offers, and Zaffran Pot is among the best. You can have your food there or to-go -- and in a rush hour the latter may be the better option since seating within... More

This area is a high rent, so the prices reflect that as well. For around $11, the buffet is decent, but of course, there are some that are better. I think I would be happier at dinner so no other Indian restaurant in this part of town even offers a buffet at that time. The food is standard fare...Mayura next... More

If I go by the earlier ratings then I would say their quality has degraded. I have been here only once, leaving out Potato-Peas all the dishes were below acceptable taste to me. It was not worth the hassle that I had to do with parking the car.

Bawarchi has the most delicious Indian food, exquisitely seasoned, and each dish has such complex and unique flavors. There are wonderful vegetarian dishes, and the chicken tika masala is amazing! There is a lunch and dinner buffet, very reasonably priced. They offer an amazing pickled vegetable dish. WOW!

Bawarchi has one of the best Indian buffet at reasonable price over 25 items. My mean message is in this review that the food at Bawarchi has great flavor and the staff is really friendly. Excellent job bawarchi also my TIPS are that try some gajjar halwa (carrot pudding)--(dessert) and vada pav (indian style veg burger).

Bawarchi has excellent north Indian food, or a reasonable cost. Do not miss their missi roti, tikki chat and mirchi ka salan. We always land up eating too much. I like the rotis better than the naan. The chai is nice too, but it's a huge portion.
