The first time I ate Nazara’s food was at the Sangeeth for a wedding. The food was shockingly good! Real Punjabi masala in the samosa, the best garlic naan, paneer, dal, and so many other dishes. Even the paan and panni poori were outstanding.
So a week after the wedding, my family and I decided to go to the restaurant for dinner. The food was authentic and seasoned well but not overdone. The kurkure bindi was crisp and flavorful but not greasy, great butter naan with the perfect amount of carbon (but the chili naan is unfortunately bad), and kaddi pakora with all the right fresh garnishes. My husband and son loved the lamb and malai kofta. We ate very well and the leftovers tasted even better the next day— even the bindi.
So we recently went there for lunch while in the midst of running errands. We didn’t realize that they had a buffet. The food was forgettable and just plain lousy. Even though they had a few of the same foods on the buffet that we’d eaten during dinner previously, the buffet served a much cheaper and inferior quality version. It was so bad that I couldn’t believe I was at the same restaurant.
I get it— they need to profit to stay in business. Too many people overload food during buffets only to waste it. So all the better ingredients and full seasonings add to the overall cost, and that means Nazara needs to raise their buffet prices. But people go to buffets for the high consumption at low prices, so they can waste if they don’t like something or took too much.
I’d prefer if Nazara got rid of the buffet and had a better quality limited menu lunch. Or even a “pick three item” type lunch that’s served in a thali style with limited portions.
The buffet was so bad that I no longer recommend Nazara with full confidence. Yet the dinner was scrumptious and I do want to go back. So, in fairness, I give the catering and dinner food 5 stars but the lunch buffet 1 Star.
