I made it over to Kinshicho the other day to try out Venus South Indian Dining once again. It’s the second time I’ve been there for lunch, and as it is buffet style, I made sure I went there with a decent appetite. For their lunch deal, they serve four different types of curry each day. That day, they had on offer Chicken Bhindi Masala, Niboshi Potato Kolambu, Palak Kootu, and Daikon Lubia Masala. I arrived just after the lunchtime rush but the place was still doing good business. I found a table near the window – Venus’s 1F location provides a bright atmosphere from its décor of light brown wood, white walls, all which are further illuminated by the large windows looking out onto the street.
As soon as I was seated I was encouraged to help myself to the curries, which sat in heated trays near the open kitchen at the back of the shop. After filling four katoris up to the brim, I added salad and rice (unfortunately not basmati, but you can’t have everything), and asked for bread options. For this you have to request it from the chef, whose jolly countenance made the only option being naan easier to bear. The good thing about this ordering method is that the naan comes piping hot – some buffets just have it out on trays so when you get it it has cooled and gone hard, making it even less palatable.
So, with my katoris overflowing, I got stuck in. more
