They also have a separate sweets section up front so you can grab some desserts after lunch! :D
Service 4/5 stars
Service was great! The guy serving me was really nice, he was smiling the whole time! When he saw that I was taking pictures he came over and suggested that I take a pic of the samosas in another angle LOL.
I liked how he gave me my own pitcher of water, even though I don't drink fluids with my meals because it affects my digestion and makes me all bloated lmao
Ambiance - Casual
The place is really small but pretty clean! They have a TV on the wall that plays reruns of indian soap operas to keep you entertained while you're noshing on your food! :D
Price - $
New Novelty is probably the cheapest place for an Indian buffet I've come across in the GVR. If you opt for takeout, it's even cheaper. For the equivalent price of a food court meal, you gain access to a wide selection of food and unlimited refills!
Value - Great
Taking into consideration how pricey it is to dine out in Vancouver, this place is a great deal! But if you really want to get your money's worth, I would suggest loading up on the meat and skipping the carbs! :D
This wasn't spicy at all but had quite a bit of flavour, in comparison to the chickepea Masala. The cheese was really soft, and slightly melted. The peas weren't as mushy as I was expecting.
I ate heaps of this and kept going back for more hehe! The rice was super fluffy, fragrant and was actually salty! Since the other dishes were quite heavy - flavour wise the rice was needed to balance things out.
This was included in the buffet but they also sell this up front in their dessert section! This was really sweet, chewy in texture and tasted strongly of cardemon! Don't you just love the shape?
If you're strapped for cash and craving Indian food, New Novelty is a great option in the Sunset area! Given the low price, even if you don't like it, you don't really have anything to lose! :)
