A dinner buffet @ Spicy Bite, Downtown Saskatoon

One of the better restaurants in Saskatoon with a nice ambience. Located at downtown, this place is easily spotted as it is at the corner of the building. I was generally impressed with the internal look of the place; clean, spacious and well-decorated. I met up with a couple of friends for dinner buffet. This is probably the only second time I had Indian food in Saskatoon so it was worth trying. Dinner buffet is set at $19.90 (comes with free flow of pop, chai tea); considerably cheaper than other dinner buffets (Chinese, Japanese, Asian) in town. However, I would have expected them to have more varieties of food as I thought the buffet spread (appetizers, mains, desserts) is quite limited.
Buffet spread. You've gotta love spices, curry, cheese and cream. Butter chicken, lamb, beef, peas, chick peas.

Salad, fruits, desserts and dressings. Really limited options.

Basmati rice, samosas, and dessert. Vege samosa is quite ok. Not too greasy and well-filled with potatoes.
Noteworthy items included the tandoori chicken which I thought was quite tasty and well-marinated. The vegetarian samosa was quite good (with lots of potatoes) and not too greasy. I liked most the garlic naan which was freshly made from the kitchen and not on the buffet spread. You have a choice of butter or garlic naan but just go for the garlic naan (with butter and garlic on it, I'm sure). 
My plate : Vegetable samosa, tandoori chicken, peas and chick peas with gravy, steamed rice

Freshly made Garlic Naan and Butter Naan. Garlic Naan is really good (something like an Indian version of toasted garlic bread;P)

Assortment of Indian dessert. Sweet stuff. I liked the white stuff Kheer (rice pudding) the best.
Overall, this is a good place for dinner meets or if you would like to try something different. They are basically a mixture of East Indian and Pakistani cuisines. You can have buffet or order from menu. You do need to love spices in your food though (yeap, including the desserts). Waiters are friendly but we need to request for the extra plates on the table to be removed (a lil' bit blur?).
