Friends have been telling us to check out the $10 all-you-can-eat buffet since January, when Curry Village opened in the Sunset. We're sorry we didn't heed their insistence sooner.

The entrees change all the time, but expect a consistent balance of meat and vegetarian offerings. Saturday's lunch included lamb, chicken, spinach, and mixed vegetable dishes, and something we'd never tried before, a creamy korma made just with fruits like mango and banana. Garlic naan arrives at the table glistening. It's replenished when needed, though this can take at least a few minutes. Hot, milky chai also comes to the table, and there's usually a fruit beverage on the buffet (we had watermelon lassi).

There are plenty of mediocre Indian buffets in the Sunset and Richmond. Don't let the memory of those make you overlook the noticeably healthier, more vibrant cooking at Curry Village.

Curry Village: 1386 9th Ave. (at Judah), 731-2388.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
