Diners pick up morsels of stew with the bread. Delicately spiced, stews range from mild to spicy and include beef, chicken and lentils, along with lots of vegetables.

Buffets usually are hit-or-miss; most of the time, the food gets stale in the warmers on the serving tables. However, the lunch buffet of Chola in the south side of Round Rock, is a step above the rest: most of the dishes are rice concoctions (such as biryani) and spiced stews (such as curry). Chola stays true to the Hindu roots of India by burning votive incense near the restaurant's entryway, as well as by offering a palate-cleansing mixture of anise seeds (some candy-coated, some not) after the meal. Those new to Indian cuisine can ease into this type of cooking by sampling the chicken tikka masala, tandoori fish, and naan (Indian flatbread). Chase everything down with sweet and sour lassi. - Freddie Obregón
