It is always a pleasure to be able to eat at the beautiful Origin India restaurant on Paradise Rd. across from The Hard Rock. So when a friend invited me for a little lunch gathering that he was having I was ready to go. I have only been there for dinner so I was very interested in trying out the lunch buffet that they were serving. Origin India has been voted Las Vegas’ Best Indian Restaurant since 2007 and there is a good reason for it.
There are a number of vegan-friendly items on the menu and a selection of of those are found on the buffet as well. There is always a nice salad of greens and fresh fruit available. I love the samosas…packed with potatoes, peas, onions and spices. Especially when dipped in their amazing chutneys that they have available. They had a mint chutney, a tamarind chutney, and a mango chutney that were some of the best that I had ever tried. They truly enhance anything they are paired with.
Also on the buffet was basmati rice waiting to be smothered with some Yellow Dal and Eggplant Curry. Both were fabulous. The Eggplant Curry was so spicy and good and worthy of a second trip to the buffet. As was the Aloo Jeera, a spiced potato mixture that was wonderful. They also brought out some spiced chickpeas as well as some Pakoras, a national treasure made of chickpea flour and veggies that were tremendous with the chutneys. Origin India always provides a lovely place to eat, whether it be for lunch or dinner. The service is always spot-on and the food is consistently a flavor sensation.
