Good Pakistani Indian Buffet At PakIndia Restaurant In Ottawa

Finding a good buffet spot can be a bit hard to find as such restaurants usually tend to focus on quantity rather than quality. Not this one though!

PakIndia is a Pakistani and Indian cuisine restaurant located in Orleans and is a good 15-20 minute drive from downtown Ottawa. This was my first time going to a Pakistani Buffet restaurant and I had lower expectations from this restaurant (because of it being a buffet). The place does look like an ordinary hangout spot.

One thing that I have never noticed before is that this place serves Rooh Afza (drink), I have been to a decent number of Indian restaurants before and have never seen that drink before at any! Also, I think the last time I saw that drink was more than a decade back!

Their Buffet has a variety of dishes that serve both vegetarians as well as meat lovers! I ended up trying out their lamb and chicken dishes along with some biryani and naan bread but my favorite one of all the dishes was the lamb.

Rice, Naan Bread and Variety of Meat!

I didn’t feel if any of the dishes were very spicy. They just had the right amount of spice for someone who might be looking to try Pakistani or Indian food.

Also; they did have a limited dessert option as part of the buffet which includes rice pudding and other Indian sweets like Gulab Jamun/Rasgulla.

Since this restaurant offers a halal menu, they do not have any pork options. While the food is definitely enjoyable, the place lacks a bit of atmosphere because maybe they cater more to people who want takeout food. Also the service is a bit limited, so if you need anything you will need to go to the counter and ask for it.

Rating: 7/10 ; Good food! Okay atmosphere.
