I really enjoyed it in Ankali. The buffet is a reasonable price, very cheap at lunch with a small menu, and slightly more expensive in the evening, but for a much larger menu. The food is so tasty, something that often suffers in buffet food. Not here though, where the staff were very kind and caring. Nice place, great food

This is a strange buffet restaurant: the naan is excellent as is the salty lassi, the starters are good but the main courses are bland and somewhat overcooked. For 18 euro (in the evening), you pay your money and take your chance. There's enough choice to find something acceptable if your expectations are low.

I opted for the soft drinks and was brought an ice cold litre half bottle of diet coke!! Owner explained this saves... More

Maybe not the finest paki-indian kitchen, but very good quality vs price. For only 18 euros you get a warm buffet of typical paki indian dishes. It's a good and fast formula in the cinema area near Porte de Namur

Great place to "pig-out" with the all-you-can-eat buffet on offer! I found this place very good value as I absolutely adore the limitless tandoori chicken available as part of the buffet. The curries were "fair" and the vege. dishes were perhaps the only healthy component of my meal (:3)). All points considered, a great place to have an Indian food... More

You never know what to expect of a buffet but I was pleasantly surprised by Anarkali. The 18 Euro fixed price is a very fair price by Brussels standards and includes dessert and tea or coffee. The food was good (not exceptional). The best part was the generous variety of dishes, including four or five chicken dishes, at least three... More
