Perhaps living up to the tinge of royalty implied in its name, Viceroy of India is one of the more intimate, elegant establishments on Devon. The deep purple and lavender shades saturating the walls and silk curtains separating the booths from one another make you feel like you're a king, or queen, for a meal.
The royal treatment continues onto your plate, where you'll find sizeable portions of food seasoned with wonderful blends of spices. The popular vegetarian plates range from eggplant bharta, featuring Tandoor-roasted eggplants mashed and seasoned with herbs and sauteed onions, to the milder matter paneer, homemade cottage cheese and green peas cooked in onion, tomato, yogurt and Indian spices. For meat-eaters, the butter chicken, marinated in ginger, garlic, yogurt, vinegar and spices and cooked in a Tandoor oven with fresh tomatoes, butter and cream, is the best you'll ever have (so says Viceroy's wait staff).
Viceroy of India offers a daily lunch buffet for the reasonable price of $7.95 on weekdays and $8.95 on weekends. It's one of the most bountiful on Devon, and, with new trays regularly coming out from the kitchen, one of the freshest as well.
