The other day, as I was driving on Foothills Blvd. in west Roseville, I spotted a new Indian restaurant, where the former Matsuyama Japanese Restaurant used to be.  Honestly, it seems like yesterday it was Japanese, and today it's Indian, as the restaurant changes hands that quickly.  I'm always in the mood to check out a new restaurant - this restaurant opened just before Christmas - and I'm always in the mood for fine Indian cuisine, so I promised myself a date with Bombay Cuisine and Indian Sweets.

As with all of my reviews, I have no affiliation with the restaurant reviewed, and there is no monetary gain on my part, as I am simply a person who likes to eat, and I love to write-up, and publish my dining experiences.

Photo:  It's late Friday morning, January 13, 2017, and I'm prepared to enjoy some fine Indian cuisine in west Roseville.  Bombay Cuisine opens at 10 in the morning, and serves buffet until 2 in the afternoon.  Later, they're open for a sit-down dinner.  I have a tendency to hit buffets, as I like to serve myself, and I can eat until I'm stuffed!

Photo:  Meet Sunny, one of the owners of the restaurant, as he greets me behind the pastry counter.  The sushi bar from the Japanese restaurant has been replaced by a pastry counter.  Bombay Cuisine and Indian Sweets bakes pastries in-house, and Sunny urged me to give them a try.  No offence, my friend, but I had the buffet to attend to.

Photo:  The buffet features thirteen dishes and one desert.  Everything is placed in stainless steel containers, and kept warm by little butane burners.  In my experience, unless a buffet is really busy, I've learned to arrive early, as to enjoy the food, as it's fresh out of the kitchen.  The drink station is to the extreme right of the photo, where you can enjoy ice water, and free Indian tea.  If you remember when this restaurant was Matsuyama Japanese Restaurant, you'll notice extensive changes to the interior and to the floor plan.

Just a few photos of some of the many items the buffet line offers.  There are several main entrees, sides, and a few vegetarian items.  Including desert, the buffet offers 14 choice to enjoy.  It's all-you-can-eat for $9.95, which makes it my kind of restaurant for lunch.  If you go away hungry, it's your own fault!

Photo:  Chicken is good, anyway you look at it, when you enjoy it in an Indian restaurant buffet.  Left is Makhani chicken and Karmai chicken is to the right.  Simply amazing!

Photo:  Goat curry to the left and Tandoori chicken to the right.  Of all the dishes served in this outstanding restaurant, and other Indian restaurants, these are my all-time favorites.  I especially love to mix the goat curry with Indian-style rice... I love EVERYTHING about Indian food, and EVERYTHING about Bombay Cuisine and Indian Sweets!

Photo:  Here's a tray of food that I absolutely went crazy over, as it includes Baigan Pakora, samosas, Vegetable Pakora and vegetable rolls.  I must have eaten half of the contents of this tray, as I was hungry, and this food is simply amazing!  I'm at a buffet, so I can eat my heart, or my stomach, out...

Photo:  Sunny snapped my photo as I was at the table, with the first of three plates of food.  I rarely take my hat off, but it's customary to do so in an Indian restaurant, so like the good citizen I try to be, I take my hat off, and show the world my bald head.

Photo:  My first of THREE plates of food I enjoyed from this wonderful restaurant.  Tandoori chicken, goat curry, Makhani and Karmai chicken, along with a vegetable roll and a samosa.  Surprise... the samosa was a potato samosa!  Oh yeah!!!  While I was at the buffet, Sunny brought a freshly baked basket of naan bread to my table, which really made the meal.  I love to dip the gravy into the naan bread.

Photo:  My second plate was all vegan, as I enjoyed Paneer Kadai, Chana Masala and a couple of potato samosas.

Photo:  By the time the third plate had arrived, I was getting full, but someway... somehow, I'd missed the Indian rice - which I go crazy over - so a third plate was in order.  So it was déjà vu to more goat curry, tandoori chicken, samosas, vegetable rolls, along with a helping of amazing Indian rice.  

I left Bombay Cuisine and Indian Sweets with a full stomach, and a smile on my face.  

Let me put it simply:  This buffet was amazing!  The delicious food tasted made-to-order, rather than made-to-buffet, as it was fresh, delicious, and just right temperature.  The staff is super friendly, and the restaurant is really laid-back and comfortable.  But, I think what stands out in my mind more than anything was the potato samosas! My favorite Indian snack!
