Punjab Cafe - San Jose

vegetable biryani rice, chana masala, spinach paneer, bread pakora
Found this Indian restaurant when we were looking for Indian buffet in the area. Supposedly this restaurant offers special discount to student of San Jose State Univ since it's pretty close to the college.

When we went there on Sunday afternoon there were like 5-6 tables occupied with total around 10 patrons. We were seated and asked whether we wanted to order or do the buffet. I asked for the price of the buffet and was told $9.78. So we went straight to the array of buffet displayed at the corner. I started with the veggie biryani, chana masala, spinach paneer (?), vegetables and bread pakora.

The naan was kept at the buffet table. I guess some people may not like it since it may not be as freshly made as naan brought to the table. But I like the naan here because they didn't seem to be as greasy as other Indian buffet place.
rice, bread pakora, chicken tikka masala, naan, pickle cucumber (?)

The selection of the dishes were not that much but enough to satisfy the crave for Indian food every now and then. Especially since this one is located closer to where we live compare to our previous encounter such as Steps of India (closer to Campbell) or Sitar Express in Cupertino.
