Indian food is such a rare find in South Florida that diners can't be as picky as they can about, say, sushi. But that works out well for Bombay Cafe, which draws a sizable crowd to its lunch buffet and does a brisk business with neighborhood fans in the evening too (Wednesday night is another all-you-can-eat buffet). Even when it's not buffet night, the portions are so massive that you'd be crazy not to take half home. A raft of vegetarian choices will please those favoring meatlessness, from palak paneer with spinach to navrattan korma, a "royal delicacy" of veggies tucked in a creamy sauce. Of course, there's chicken tikka masala, but there's also chicken chile malasa, which amplifies the heat level considerably. Dishes like the delicious lamb vindaloo can be made extra hot as well.
