A new Indian place has emerged from the ashes of Taste of India and the very short-lived Madras. Green Leaf (4215 University Dr.) “always serve[s] awesome food.”
If there is a way to bias us in favor of liking a restaurant, putting “awesome” in the sign is probably it. That aside, the food was very tasty, especially for the second day of operations.
We don’t want to comment too much on the food because they only had a buffet and the actual menu was not ready yet. The buffet had several interesting options that we hadn’t seen before and everything was fresh and flavorful. If we had a criticism, it would be that some of the sauces were too runny.
Apparently the menu will be broad, but will have a particular focus on South Indian cuisine. For the buffet ($8.50 weekday, $10.50 weekend), they plan to focus on a different region depending on the day of the week.
The service was great. We will be back to check out the menu when they are in full swing. Hopefully this place lasts longer than its predecessors.
