Flavor of India is one of LA’s more upscale Indian restaurants that touts itself as Dolly Parton’s favorite.
While the backstory may be as simple as Dolly came in to eat one day and said “Golly, this Tikka Masala is terrific!” and then they snapped a photo with her and made her the official mascot, who can say?
But the food is very good (not no better than any other Indian places I can think of) but what they do excel in is having an excellent lunch buffet. At $10.95, it’s certainly is the best deal to stuff yourself silly, Dolly style.
Some of the fried items suffer a bit by sitting in those warming bins but they’re still tasty. The Chicken Tikka Masala and Fish Vindaloo were both piping hot.
Some folks may shy away from Indian buffets, but they really are a fun and inexpensive way to carb load for the marathon you’re not running. Don’t come if you’re not starving. Unless you’re only running a 5K.
